    Question Content Management

    Help.

    I designed a website FOC for a friend who works for a charity. They have asked if there is anyway that they could update the news section on a regular basis.

    Does anyone know of anything free or have any ideas that would enable me to plug this into the site. The site is HTML/CSS and php includes based the same as www.**********.co.uk but these guys have no web skills whatsoever so I was thinking of a page where they could input News Date, News Title and News Story which the site could then pull through and display on the news page.

    Any ideas, support or miricales would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Well, if it is PHP, it wouldn't be hard to set up a simple PHP script to just update the news content. Using a full blown content management system would be overkill in this situation, and a security risk (more points of failure, more chances of getting compromised).

    I started learning PHP through the Visual Quickpro books, that would be a good start in my opinion.

    Does their webhost offer a database? If so, use a blogging tool for the news page. It's the easiest way of doing it. I'm about to redesign a site for a friend, and that's pretty much what I'm going to do.

    Did you manage to find a free blog that would work?
