**** Need To Create a Online Diary URGENT ****

Hello Experts,

I need some ideas on how to create a online diary as webpage(s)?

I dont know which way to start or how to go about creating one, so if anyone can give me some idea's, URL's, program example's etc, it would be a great start!

This online webpage/website diary needs nearly all the functions as a real handbook diary - add & update information that is added to diary...

My web-programming skills lie in HTML, JavaScript, PHP, ASP, PERL, CGI.

This is urgent and need answers/ideas/examples/hints fast!

Thank you

is it for 1 user or more users?
If its for one user you will need to create the following i assume

A page to add a record to a diary and maybe a page to edit

and everytime the day ends a new page to be added for you to update, is that correct.

I presume you will be using a database to store your records, if this is the case the whole date thing, including looking up previous records isnt a problem, which database are you using, if any?
well... then you have to create it with database support;

database diary

table: users
fields: user_id, name, password

table: entries
fields: entries_id, content, user_id, date_created, date_edited

So you need to create a login script for the users, and when they logged in get THEIR data from the database.
