Keep in mind that I am new at web design and still using basic html. Is it possible to link a text file to a website for updates? Let's say I have a part of my site that I want have a updated message daily. I don't want to go into the code and change it everyday. Is there a way I can use a text file, put in a directory and that will change the text on my page?

I do this for playlist of music and video but can't find the code for text.

yes - php, jsp, perl, etc. (any scripting language) can read a text file and place the contents into an html block any time a user loads up that page...

if you are comfortable with scripting, you can start with the most likely viable candidate, which is php:

hope that helps!
