How do you know the account number? What do you need to do with the text
input - that is, why do you need to save it? Do you need it to persist
The simplest option might be to use a server-side script for this, but
it's unclear exactly what you're trying to achieve - can you clarify?
Thanks for the questions. My site is used in the education market for vocabulary development. The students select a vocabulary word and see it defienition and a visual example. The student then types their notes and about each vocabulary word in their "own words". The purpose of saving this input is so the student can later review their notes for a given vocabualry word. In a given classroom, up to six students are at six different computers. Each student is logged on using their account #. Given this account #, each students is reading the notes they typed for each vocabulary word. Thus, each screen looks different given the individual input. Thanks for your interest, this is the last step to full - implementation! - Brian.
It's still not completely clear how you want/need to implement this, so
I'll ask again: do you need the data to persist across "sessions" and,
beyond that, between different computers? So that if user A logged on to
computer 1 today and made some notes, but the next day logged into
computer 2, would you need the notes made on computer 1 previously to be
available to the same user on computer 2?
Yes, I do need the data to persist across "sessions" and the data must be able to be accessed on "Computer A" or "Computer B". Sorry about the confusion, Brian.
Good catch Sean. I had shocknet on my laptop bookmarks until it got stolen.
I always found the site an excellent resource center.
