I will be posting lots of word documents and pdf files and
short movies (eventually) on my website.

I am new to website development. I am using Web Easy Pro
6 to create my website. (By the way, if you suggest
another software package that is better for teachers'
purposes, your advice would GREATLY be apprciated!)

I visited one teacher's site and she had a table to share
her documents. There were Word document icons and
Powerpoint icons and PDF icons in one column, the file
name in another, and I think a brief descrption in the
next column. There was also a "search by file type" drop
box above the table.

That's PERFECT! I love it! So, is there a website that
has a tutorial for how I can create this? Or, is there
any other source you recommend (book, CD, etc.)?

I asked the teacher, and she said it was set up by her
school and not her doing (smile).

Thanks! ...See More

It's all done using PHP script (most likely).
Usually it involves a MySQL database, but it could be
done using without MySQL ... just by using a simple
text-file database.

Find out if your webhost allows PHP scripting.

If it does, it would be a matter of putting all of the
MS Word docs in one ...See More
