Hello people.

I was wondering if anyone could help me with something. I am making a website. It's gona be nothing too fancy. But i have this wish, and i was wondering if anyone could poke me in the right direction.

Basically this is what i want to achieve:


Ok I want like 3 of these on my front page. What i want them to do is as follows. When I press the yellow cirlce it lets me change:
-The title
-Link to picture hosted somewhere
-description beneath and what it links to when clicked on.

And to prevent anyone being able to do it. Some kind of password protection, which would be remebered by my browser, but not necesary for rememberanc.

All help would be greatly appreciated. I am guessing this is probably possible to achieve in FlashMX, but i was interested maybe there is an easier way.

Well flash can make the graphic and the text and stuff but it's not going to handle the online editing and admin athorization etc. You will nead some sort of server side scripting and database to store the image names, descriptions and handle the admin login. Somethink like ASP or PHP with MySQL would do the back end operation for you.

There are many gallery scripts already in existance that you can download, install and modify to your requirements. Have a look at:
