    website updating by clients

    I've seen websites (ebay, marinesource.com, yachtworld.com, for example) that allow subscribers to log in and update the content and images on their on page within the site - without using html or ftp.
    I'd like to learn how to make a website that allows others to do this easy updating to specified pages - but I don't even know where to start.
    Can anyone tell me what I use to do this (javascript - database's - ???), or better yet point me to a tutorial?

    You will definitely need a server side language such as asp, php, or cgi. These languages are designed to comunicate with a database. I don't know that a single tutorial will bring you to a point to accomplish this. My suggestion would be to pick a server side language (asp is my choice, but its a matter of personal preference) and take the time to learn it. Once you do that you will better understand how sites enable such updating.

    Thanks. I did some searches on asp and many links later I found that what I want is a "Content Management System" - where they talk alot about ASP, Mysql, databases... and separating the web design elements from the content input. Thanks for getting me on the right track.

    Hi Aggie

    I was also looking for something like this and found an ideal and cheap solution at http://www.innov-8.de/products-e.html

    It uses a 'Word' like format and is pretty good.

    That looks interesting! I'll probably get a chance to look into it in the next few days. Thanks.
