          The best approach would probably be to use one of the simple content
          management systems. People here recommend these ones pretty frequently:

          Content Seed
          Cushy CMS
          Nano CMS

            Patty, I'm new in the forum, though not to DW or Adobe products. I was interested in following the links in your sig, but, as you can see, they are not links. Is this by your design, a forum limitation, or an oversight?

            cheers,
            scott

              There were no links there. Just use Google for each.

                I just didn't have the links handy, and figured a quick Google search would
                produce each one.
