Greetings all,
Here is my problem:
I am making a website for a client. He wants to be able to update certain sections on his own.
example: he wants to update something in the events section, so he just logs in and updates it without involving me whatsoever.
He has very little knowledge of html, ftp, etc etc.

I know that there is an easy way to do this, but I have never used it so I am completely clueless about it. Please educate me!

Thanks,
John

Hi happyfluffy.

How about using an article script or something similar.

Have googled article scripts and came up with a heap of options, from free to costly.

One that interests me is articleMS which can be found at
http://www.articletrader.com/articlems/

Am going to try it out. It may be what I am looking for also.

Hope this helps.

are article scripts the same as those installation type blogs?

i think what made blogs popular was that all you needed to do to update your site was login, type stuff, click "publish/enter/post" or whatever, and bam. main page new entry.

you can rework the area he want's to maintain by simply using a blog on it i think.

but wow, i just took a look at articlems. POWERFUL. lets you edit more than just the main stuff. that seems more awesome.

Yes! Comparing it to a blog is perfect! That is exactly what I'm looking for. The only thing that he could change would be the text, and it would be updated in a what you see is what you get way.

A friend told me to try a program called plone - www.plone.org
I haven't looked into yet, but he was saying it could be a little complicated.
I was really just hoping for the simple solution!

Hi John.

I did abit of looking around after posting the previous reply and found a pletora of scripts that may help you, a lot of them are simple submission pieces, without the doo-dads.

Have a look through some of the sites offering scripts, some are free and most you will have to pay something. Most seem to have a demo going so I think you should be able to find something suitable.

Places like
