Edit a DIV Section only from a CMS

P: 228

I have a series of pages that are totally static [no db required]. I dont want to use databases unless it is impossible. The contents of this page is stored in the main div section named maincontent.

Is there anyway i could update that section only from JS? That is, make changes to the file?

PHP is a fine solution as well. I need to change the file but update only that section?

ainít that a paradox?

itís not possible using only JS, you need at least a language, that can change your source file (a server side language like PHP, Perl, Java, etc.)

you could try XForms, though the support is yet marginal.

if you put the repetitive page wrapper and the div contents in separate files, you can edit them separately.

the files can be combined using php before serving, or with ajax if you don't have server scripting.

this way, you can make a change to all pages by altering a single file...
