I am making a website for a client in which I need to incorporate some way of allowing easy client editting.
Having looked online I havent found anything that will fit the requirements exactly but have seen the functionality on other sites in the past. Ideally I would use a secure web page with a form where the client could select the item to edit using a drop down and then proceed to fill in a few boxes, saving the new content that would be then viewable in the flash file.
I origianlly thought of an html form that stores the saved info in an XML file that could then be drawn out in the flash site.
Is that the best way? I have never done this before so any past experience info, or do's and don'ts would be very welcome. Any help would be much appreciated.
i've used xml to supply data to the website and, for non-xml savy customers, created a separate flash app that edits the xml file.
Thanks for the reply.
Do you know any good tutorials for writing to and from XML with flash?
