Im new here so forgive me if this has been asked before.

I am looking to enable my site (html) so that I can create an admin login so others and edit text blocks in the site, but not access other areas

Any help would be greatly appreciated:(

This has been asked many times.

You need a CMS, content management system, there are tons both open source and paid for.

A popular open source CMS is Joomla, Adobe also have Contribute but this is a commercial CMS.

I have contribute never used it.

what I want is make a page with a text area, IE: Monthly Speacial...

and make it so others can go in and edit the text area in Monthly Specials only without affecting the rest of the layout.

So can I do this with contribute?

as im aware contribute just reads html and creates areas in the file which can be updated. This is an application which has to be installed on each users machine. Its not a CMS like Joomla

Do what Ricky has advised and check out Joomla

http://www.joomla.org/

There is a learning curve mind
