Hi,
I'm currently making a website for my pc parts business.
As i'm trying to be "cost effective" i've decided to make the site myself
As i will have alot of items on the site, and the prices will be changing frequently, i need a way that i can update the prices with ease.
Eg. if prices for HDDs, ram, and cpus all change in one day - i don't want to edit each page tht contains them, as this will take along time, and then i'll have to upload them all etc.....
is there a "quicker" easy way?
Like (i may be dreaming here) a program, that you just type on the new price, upload something - and all the prices change automaticly?
Like i said, i may be dreaming, but is there something that could help me?
Cheers

The frontend is the coding used to interpret the output from the database. Examples include asp, php and jsp.

The database input can be done either directly to the tables or via specifically designed webpages.
