I mean do Stan & the rest of the MM staffers manually update each page in HTML, and then re-upload the changes, or is there an administrator section for automatic update of pages - a 'back end', if you will.<br><br>
Yep. He wants to know about the front page. A lot of sites (all the ones I make) don't update via FTP. Rather I create a backend form (password protected) and input the data via an HTTP form. It gets socked in a database and then spit up at site delivery. As far as I know there is no database for the front page and no advanced automated system. Maybe a simple perl script to do it but I still doubt it. If there was a pub sys then there would be perma links :P<br><br>-- j o n k n e e --<br>MacMerc.com<br><br>
