Is there or can there be a script for article page creation
- Hello N-tabbers
I would like to do some article site building with NoteTab. I am not
good at making scripts and I was leaning toward using WordPress with
all its widgets and such as an alternative.
I wouldn't need all the php files ala WordPress because the author is
static, the layout is static and many of the pics and advertisement
What I would like to do is have some way of scripting a template to
insert the title in several places and the body of an article. That
might need some kind of file merge using a folder of files and a template.
I am using 4.95 and I suspect I'll have to upgrade to 5.? but that
isn't a real problem.
In addition to merging the new article into the page I would like to
have some rotating information included as the page is built. Similar
to a random quote type function. Can NoteTab take a text file and
insert randomly a line of text into several points on the page. Can
the same be done with a list of banners - perhaps through a single
file with a different banner or picture link info on each line that
can be randomly selected and inserted.
The end result would be a series of html files with different but
related articles on each page. I guess I'll have to find a way to
update an index too. Sounds tough.
If it is not with in the capabilities of NoteTab then I guess it's

I think I posted in the wrong group. I intended to post this query in
the clips group.
