simple HTML page

I'm trying to design a simple HTML page which would let users -- view the page, edit it and then view the updated page again.

Is there any simple way of doing this? I did some google search (not sure what I should put in the search box) but nothing specific comes up.

I imagine that is what your trying to do. The source of that page can guide you, but it doesn't give you all the answers. Its been to 'sandbox' the edittable page so that malicious users can't exploit the functionality your trying to give them.

Thanks, but, not quiet. I don't want the users to see the HTML tags. The users will see a form (forms are easy to make). The form will have drop-down menus, radio buttons etc. Users will click "edit form" to edit the form they are seeing. For example, they might change Country from USA to Argentina in the drop-down menu. And then the will save the form and the new saved form is viewable.

That's rather a complex application. You're talking about a wiki. And it takes skilled web developers quite a lot of time to develop such applications. You certainly cannot do it with pure HTML...

Try an already existing wiki script which you can use.

Check and look at the list of wiki software in the list.

Noir911... I can do it for you at a very low price. If not interested here are some tips that you might want to consider:


The easiest way to do that is to use an existing software. If you want to do develop you own CMS (Content Management System) you should know:
HTML (lvl pro)
PHP (lvl advanced)
MySQL (lvl novice).
You can use HTML to show your data that you fetched from a MySQL database by using PHP.
You can also use Perl, Python, Ruby, Java and a lot more programming languages to do the same job. Instead of PHP of course. If you decide to develop it on your own I will give you specific examples on using PHP here.
