Hi guys,

I created a simple website for my wifes childminding service.
Its only basic and im using html.

What i want is, rather than all the text be in the html document, is there any way that i can have it somewhere easy for my wife to write up or change things and it will update the website?

Ie, the html pulling the text from a word document. if she changes her policies, she just updates the word document and the html page will pull the info from there?
It dont have to be word, could be anything but you get the gist.

Both answers work well. Kompozer gives you easy edit once you set up the ftp connection, Wordpress gives easy edit too.

Personally, I'd go for Wordpress because the add-ons give greater flexibility.

While it is a little more coding I would possibly look into the idea of sql database intergration. That way you then can have a admin section into the webpage which only your wife has a link to and then that writes anychanges into the database. The idea of the main page would be to read from the database and display. Yes php would be the easiest was to do that but with limited coding experience you will require to do a lot of trial and error. I would suggest that you get hold of a php programming book (something like 4dummies) and get your head around the php.

While yes it will take a little bit of working out you final result will be something easy for her to update.

I am working on something similar for my wifie so understand what you are trying to achieve.

Are you hosting the website yourself or is it cloud based. If you wish the easier cheaper option then the like of wordpress etec as mentioned above will work but obviously she will need to be comfortable editing the whole webpage instead of just the memo data object within a database.

Cheers

Erm, in Wordpress the content is in the SQL database, all the other stuff is handled by the template(s). Wordpress if often written off as solely for bloggers but it can be easily used as a content management system for 'normal' websites. In other words, you just edit the content. Easy as using Word.

Have to agree with other the replies - Wordpress provides a simple WYSIWYG editor for adding pages and articles to your site. There are loads of free templates. Personally I prefer Joomla these days.

While not knocking Joomla, it's a bit massive for a small website!
