I am so fustrated, I've been looking for the answer all day!


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

I came across this htmlarea and thought it would be a great tool for the admin on my site, but I didn't realize that I would need a form handler for this.

Basically, I don't even know how to search for this; I don't even know what I am looking for. lol...I'll try to explain:

I need the content of the htmlarea to update a page on my site. I would like it to have a button that would say "save" and it would "post" the content directly into a specific page.

Is this possible. If you cannot tell me specifically how to do this, at least give me a hint, like what am i asking for here, and how could I get this.

Just give me a hint, please!!!

I didn't mean to be such a noob, but i've been searching for hours, and when I do find a subject related to this, the replies are really confusing to me because I don't know javascript,asp,php etc.

Thanks for your time!

you need a formhandler that saves the content either in a txtfile or a database -> there is no way around. if you are interessted i can attach a simple php script that saves your content into a txtfile.

I am very very interested. Thank you so much.

Just one more question, how will it go from the text file to the html file? How will the file be read after its been written?

Thank you so much for your help and time.

are there some files i need to give you for this?

Angela,
No such luck I believe. Basically you will need a little program that takes whatever variable the contents of htmlarea-ized <textarea> field is, write that content to a file (wrapping in appropriate tags) and then you can read it. HTMLAREA will not create the file for you. I hope this helps.
