    * How to create an online notepad?

    i want to create a text box on my website where i can add messages to it and it will stay in the box when i return to it. it should look something like this:

    teluguland.com/utilities/notepad.php

    of course it doesnt work but it works on the site notepad.wz.cz (user: asdf; pass: asdf). i also remember my friend had the same feature on his homepage 7 years ago but i dont know how he did it. does anyone know of such a script or how to make one?

    thanks

    are you looking to do this for posting news or something?
    If so you just save the news in a text file and then i frame it.

    If not i'm sure all its doing is
    making a form with a box,
    importing the lines from a text file
    when they click save it re-writes the text file
    and ther you have it.

    pretty easy to code too

    Try looking for a Wiki ... there are various ones available for most languages.

    umm all you need to do is set a cookie and when they get back to page check to see if they have a cookie and read from it...
