Change HTML

P: n/a
Can PHP be used to change my clients static HTML pages? By themselves?

Instead of having to download the HTML from the server, then use
dreamweaver and upload the file back?

Thanks

How do you mean 'By themselves'?

You can manipulate files on the same server without effort: look into
fopen(), fwrite() and the like. If PHP runs on a different server, it's
something different. A possible solution would be to let PHP connect through
FTP, download the html-file, change it, and upload it again. Should be no
problem.

PHP - server side based approach
Java Script - could be embedded into HTML and with a use of document.write() you can modify HTML page without refreshing it from the server

Example:

=========== Code Starts Here =============
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>An Example of JavaScript code</title>
<head>
<body>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!-- Use the HTML comment to hide JavaScript from old browsers
document.write("This text was written using JavaScript.")
// End hiding JavaScript -->
</script>
<NOSCRIPT>
You see this if your browser won't run JavaScript.
</NOSCRIPT>
</body>
</html>

=========== Code Ends Here =============
