Hello Experts,
I expect this question to be too simple for any experienced web admin/developer, and therefore over-thought. :-)

Let me begin by mentioning I am very-versed in many things I.T., but not great at HTML / Web dev. Let me prove this by saying I use MS FrontPage. :-)

So I have a really simple website with 1 page. This page has 1 table with 1 row and 1 column. It's a blog site.

Currently for a new submission, I edit the page, insert a new row, add my comments, and upload the edited mainpage. Simple-Simple, but very manual.

I want to consider adding a second page with a simple submission form. My idea is to have a simple form with a textbox and a submit button. Once submitted, the new row is created, and the submission is set on the main page.

Any clues on how to accomplish this "very-simply" using FrontPage 2003? I really stress the need to keep this simple.

Thanks for your time and ideas!!

This would be best accomplished with using some sort of scripting language and a database.

I would suggest something really simple like asp (not asp .net) and a free database server such as mySQL or PostGRES.

I pretty much agree that you are going to need some sort of scripting language.  My personal preference is PHP; but that's me.

Before you use a scripting language, you'll have to verify that your web ISP allows you to use scripting languages and which one(s).

Of course, you can always post questions back to Experts Exchange.  (Perhaps you'll learn enough to become an expert!)
