    Simple Updates Needed

    Okay so I'm creating a website for someone who is not very familiar with website-building and/or html code. I therefore need to make it as easy as possible for this person to update the webpages. The plan is to create a page with some sort of submission type thing that would allow him to type in something and have it automatically sent to the webpage. Failing this it might be sent to a different document which could be read by the webpage via iframes. The basic layout would be somewhat like this:
    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    
    <form action="form_action.asp">
    News: <input type="text" name="News" value="Update news here..." /><br />
    <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    You can use Google Docs. Both Word and Excel will work, as long as you set up the frame size correctly. If he can type into either then he can update the page in real time. Nice and simple



    Cheers
