Hi, my names Jack and i've been seaching around for information to answer a question i have. I came across this site while searching and have read some of the posts and I like the level of help users here have received. Im hoping i can get my questions answered here.
Im designing a web site for a local cafe and find that i want to embed/set/whatever a forum post on the main page. This is going to be used by the cafe owners to post in their section of the forum up and coming events that will show up on the site's main page. I have looked around and I dont like Iframe html and see that it really is not what i am after anyways. What i want is a way to have the text only from this forum post show up aswell in a section i have set aside on their main page. I have seen it done on other sites and I like the idea of a simple way for my non computer literate friends to add their information without having to open up a note pad or html editor in order to add their news on their main page.
Im not concerned about the method(html,xml,flash,java,php) that is required of the website itself in order to produce this effect, but rather I am interested in learning how this is done in any way.
I hope i have explained my question properly and have placed it in the right section, pardon me if i have not. Thanks again for your time.
