Ok, i currently have the task of re-creating the website some of you may remember me developing a few months back , now this time i will be re-doing it PHP coded.

My question though , is .. if it is possible in anyway to allow someone to edit a page online (such as add text or something, or even pages) without having to use FTP clients etc etc, as the people i develop for want to be able to make changes themselves, but none of them have any coding knowledge, and probably don't even know how to upload edited pages. Therefore having a way they can do it online would be useful , and even then what sort of things would they be able to do?

Any rough suggestions are appreciated.

Does this mean i require to have page text/images etc stored in a database? and what sort of formatting if any could be saved into a database? (bold tags etc. things i think they might cope with learning...)

Thanks alot, i know i've asked alot.

Yeah 8) I was aware of that , but yeah i figure picking up the languages at my age will assist me in my later life.
