First, stop top posting

Second, if you're a masochist, then by all means code all of your listings
with HTML.

Before all these new tools existed, when the Internet was new, all
there was - was HTML.

It wasn't that long ago..

I should have paid more attention back then - there were jobs sections
of companies back then, so blissfully simple. Somehow they worked.

Does anyone here remember that old technology?

Yes, they were updated by the developer. Anyone who wanted to post a job
gave it to the web developer, who added it to the page manually. Feel
free to do it that way if you want.

BTW: Please don't post upside-down.

Perl's been around a long time. Still works fine too.

Tasks like this have usually been done server side, and that goes way
back into the '90's. The widespread use of databases on the net some 5
years ago has just made this easier.

When the Internet was new, there was no HTML.
Birth of Internet - circa 1969.
Birth of HTML - circa 1990.

Manually -- copy and paste.

Well, yes, but HTML is just a markup system - it can't actually do anything
- it just says 'this is a heading' 'this is a para' within a preexisting
document. To create or delete documents on the fly, you need something
else.

If your HR department is going to edit a plain-html website, they will need
a basic understanding of HTML coding and FTP. I used to believe that this
was within most people's capabilities, but the evidence has forced me to
change my mind!

If you think you saw a similar system long ago that didn't use php or asp,
I would wager a reasonably large sum that the thing doing the work of
adding pages as required was either:

a) a perl script

or

b) a human being.

Perl scripts are widely available if you want to use them - most people
find php easier to get started with though, which is why I suggested it.

Your HR department should be able to source a human being themselves.
However, I think you'll find that technology has rather high ongoing costs
in comparison with a simple php solution, or even a Perl script!

Fancy is good, if it's cheaper than home-cooked plain. _Download_
(don't write) something like phpBB (a full-featured chat board) and
turn off all the features that don't look like a noticeboard. It's
easier and (more importantly) less buggy than trying to write your own
from scratch.

Back in 96 I put a web site together in about an hour using word and
netscape that received all kinds of compliments from people that did
web sites for a living.. I guess that isn't done anymore.

I downloaded it. Interesting program, thanks for the tip!

I'd love to see some examples.
