    I am looking for suggestions on ways to update my site more easily.

    The site is laid out like this...



    article #1
    --------------------------------------------
    picture | article
    --------------------------------------------

    article #2
    -------------------------------------------
    picture | article
    -------------------------------------------

    article #3
    --------------------------------------------
    article
    --------------------------------------------


    and so forth.

    When I get to 10 or so articles I create another file and start putting the bottom ones into that file. I'm now onto my 4th file and I'm getting tired of copying and pasting all the time. I looked into php nuke but it's generic and does way more then I need it to do. It would be nice to be able to add articles and such through a web interface and when it hits a certain amounts automatically moves onto page 2 or something.

    what do you all suggest I do here?

    I'd use a database rather than seperate files since I'm more familair with it. But, if you wanted to create seperate files after 10 rows, it is very possible to do as well. Check PHP documentation, it has the information you need to know to accomplish this task.

    I don't really care if it creates a new file or what not. I meant I just wanted it to move to another page after a certain amount of entries


    I suppose I should worry more about how i'm gonna update it before anything else

    thanks for the link..

    You could use something like WordPress maybe.... It's basically the same idea as a site for news. I've used b2 (now WordPress) for news on a surf shop web site once. :dunno:
