I hope I'm explaining this right cause I sure can't figure out how to google for it.
can you explain a bit more? it's not entirely clear what you are wanting to do.
maybe what you want is just a php page which does nothing more but do:
DUMP CONTENTS OF TEXT FILE HERE WHICH WILL KEEP ITS FORMATTING BECAUSE OF THE <PRE> tags
Yeah I was afraid that might happen.
What I would like to be able to do is create a section on a webpage what could be updated by simply uploading a text file.
Like a sort of miniblog without the database.
A way to easily change the information without having to make the change and then re-uploading the entire html file.
