Hey, I've been trying to figure a way to do this for a whole week now...but i am such a noob i don't even begin to understand how this is done and even if javascript is the way to do it.
Well what I'm talking about is with having multiple pages, like this site has for its posts and when people submit new stuff the pages automatically update. In the site im making I'll be posting new articles regularly so wouldnt this be the easiest way to do that? Is there a specific name for this so that i can go study how to do this?
Thank you.

You can't do it with javascript. JS runs in the browser.

You need a scripting language running on the server. PHP is one of those you can use.

The server also needs to have a database or a filesystem to hold the data.

There's many forum, blog, and content management systems (CMS) that have already done much of the donkey work for you.

If you know all the people that will be posting information, and it is a small number, then a blog or a Wiki might be useful.

If many people need to interact, then perhaps a forum. It also depends what they will be posting. Is it just text, or is it images or files, or something else?
