How do I update ebooks?

theideaman I've tried and tried but it's got me stumped.
I'm trying to create dyanmically updated ebooks
but the code doesn't want to work for me.
I know all about the javascript, that's a breeze.
It's the document.write.In thing a magiggy that's
giving me problems.  Everytime I upload the text
file to my server and place the javascript on a test
page it doesn't show my articles.
Any suggestions.
Starting to pull my hair out and chew on golf balls.

EBookCompiler I'm not sure but try putting an IFRAME that links to the web page (on your site), and from the web page on your site runs the JavaScript

I think it may be something to do with JS security, and the IFRAME should remove this considerations

If you use IFRAME, you probably also need to set Automatically Open Internet links in new window in Edit User Interface to Off.

rlemire To dynamically update ebooks or web pages already placed on your web site you probably should be looking to a server side scripting language like PHP.
When teamed with JavaScript amazing things can be accomplished.

theideaman PHP..lol..I was afraid someone would say that.
I'm just starting to learn cgi and all the rest
but thanks for your suggestion...I'm just waiting
for my brain to absorb all the foreign computer
language out there.  I've bought plenty of books
just a matter of re-reading until the concept seeps
through the ole brainstems.

EBookCompiler Well you don't have to use PHP

You can use a static HTML page and link to that as per my original response

What you might want to do is name this static page with a .php ending (provided your host supports PHP - yes you can make a PHP page which doesn't contain any php code, just HTML), so that if the page later becomes a PHP script [you won't have to release a new version of the ebook with different links]
