WEB SITE EDITING

By shreeshaila ·
Respected Sir/Madam
I would like to know that if a person doest not know a software like VB or C or any languages. Will it be possible to use some application software he can edit his own website or authorised sites. For example to update his own biodata or any information avilabe on his own site.
This is Question is to find out that any own has create a web editing tool which will download whole site and so that editing is possible at pur end and up load it to the web service provider.

I hope this question is clear . I am not a software person but I intend to make use of this new technology for daily use and teach others too.

Thanking You

This is a sketchy question but,

Depending on the site you can use Frontpage to do what you want. If Frontpage is loaded on the computer there will be a button in internet explorer to open the page using the software. Depending on the type of siteit is you can save it to the hard drive open and edit it. Or simply select all on the page and copy it to word or something and edit it there. It just needs to be save in html format.

But the main issue is you must have access or rights to save to the folders on the server that hosts the site. This is a project that will take some learning but should be interesting and fun.

There are many programs that can assist you here...from the simple and free HTML editor to slick packages like Go Live, DreamWeaver and Frontpage. You do not need to know VB or C to work on Websites (though if you wish to add runnable programs from the site, then VB Scripting, Java, Perl etc would be helpful). As far as updating your personal information, that can really be done using HTML from a simple text editor. I personally like Adobe Go Live, because of its interface and how well it integrates with other products I use. A basic knowledge of HTML is really a good starting point and there are many websites that offer HTML primers. After that, take a look at tucows.com or downloads.com for "WebEditors". I would also recommend looking atwww.adobe.com for Go Live, www.macromedia.com for DreamWeaver and www.microsoft.com for FrontPage (which is integrated into the Microsoft Office Suite).

Good luck!

Yes, you can do what you want. You need two
things. One, any text program (simple text,
word, etc) AND an FTP (file transfer protocol)
program. You do not need any 'special'
software to make the changes, In fact, your
computer probably hasboth programs already
installed. You access the FTP from the run
function. As in, run: ftp (see your computer
help for more info). You can use any text
program. You make the changes in the text
program and get and send the information
from/back to the 'internet' using the FTP
program. You do need to have permission to
do this. Do you know how is in charge of the
site? You will need to get information from
themin order to access the page/s that you
want to edit. It will help if you have a basic
understanding of html. Trust me, it is not
rocket science! It is very logical and easy to
learn the basics. You will need permission to
do all this so the best thing would be to
talk/email the webmaster or owner of the site,
get the information you need (user, password,
directory, IP address, etc) and ask them how
they want you to do these things. Don't be
surprised if they want to do this for you. Please
understand, with these kind of permissions,
you can do a lot of damage that you won't
know how to fix. All things considered, it might
just be a lot easier to have someone else do it
for you. That said, go forth, learn, and have fun.
