i have the code below
i want to use the rte i have to edit files on my server
it works fine for one file but i want to edit others
how do i make it pass a value that php can use to denote what files to use
how can i pres the link and have it load and save the data for the matched file.

i tried to use include to load another rte but this ones special cant have code on the same page, and cant use the div/textbox example as i dont want to click on each box i only want one to show up at a time so i figured id pass the values via a link to denote what file im on and what file to edit

but haven't got a clue how to do that

thank you in advance for any code or help you may provide

Hi again Bro!.

I code a full example to you!. =P

I attached all the files, you just download all the files, and install the scripts in some folder of your server.

Create two folders:

"your" and in the folder "your" create the folder "Directory" and put some text or html files on it.

The main script is the "YUI-Plus.php" file.
The example read all the files on "your/Directory" folder, and display a list of them, when you click in some file it is loaded to the editor and you can edit it, when you click in the "submit" button the file is updated when the new content, and you will see a message about it.

I hope that my code helps you and don't forget give me some points! =P
