I was asked to build a site for a Friend of mine - i generally build a site that is created, and does not require updating because the information is consistent. I need to build this site, and the owner wanted to be able to place events on the main page, however he does not want to learn how to use flash.

I've seen, but have never done, a way to create the site and link it to a .txt or .xml file, and all they have to do is edit the information in the txt/xml file, upload it to the server, and walk away.
I was wondering what is the best way going about creating this "link file" in the site, and what special coding is needed within the site and also the file for this to work...

Any and all help would be appreciated.
thanks!

if it's simple data like events then using an xml file will probably work fine. If you want to do something more robust, you could use php or some other back end script which could use a database etc.
you could create a form form for them to enter data etc.

It is just simple data - basically when the event is and where it is taking place.

I have never done this before.... How do i link the file to the flash site?
