    I designed a few web sites YEARS ago... that were actually pretty cool. I used Dreamweaver and Flash. Now that I've pretty much forgotten most of what I use to know (not really), I want to help out a friendly local church that would like to be able to upload audio files each week of that weeks service and I want to make it as simple as possible for them so that they could do it themselves. I plan on doing a screen shot video tutorial for them showing them how to do it. My question is, what's the easiest way to do this nowadays? My last site design was around 2003 so things have changed I'm sure. I also never dealt with Paypal web designs and they have a link on a page that links to Paypal and I want to keep that so I assume just copying the code will work IF I reworked the layout of the site a bit (which I may not do), I just want to help them be able to upload their audio each week. Suggestions? Thanks!

    Wordpress.

    ?????

    Should we assume that you mean a PayPal "donate" form, as PayPal do not do 'web design'

    If so; yes you only need to use the HTML code from and including the opening <form ....> tag up to and including the closing </form> tag and integrate that into the new document.

    Yes, it is just a link for a donation/tithe. I mentioned Flash earlier because it's something I used in the past. I am wanting this very basic and simple. No player needs to be involved. I just want people to be able to download mp3 files that are uploaded each week and then they can play them on whatever they choose. Not doing anything fancy. I was thinking to keep it as simple as possible for them to maybe do it in HTML (unless there's an easier way FOR THEM to upload the files themselves)... create a download page that list each month with a link to it, that takes you to a list of dates for that month for you click and then that would have an mp3 directly linked to it for download. I don't think they will need more than a year of files and the dates could be listed in a non-calendar format so that it could be used the following year without having to change it because the dates would not be linked to days of the week. Just very simple. If there is a way to automate it for them to where they could just drag and drop a an mp3 file on the date they want they would be the best way I think.

    As I said .... Wordpress, it has a drag 'n' drop media uploader and will insert a link into the post 'automagically'.

    The name "blog" is a contraction of "web log" which is defined as:

    "A list of events arranged in a chronological order, displayed as a 'web' document"

    Which I would suggest is pretty much what you are trying to achieve.


    Unless you actually want to re-invent the wheel.
