    i currently operate www.johnbrowncars.com for a client. if you'll move to the 'cars for sale' section, you'll see a list of cars currently for sale.

    i do this all by hand using frontpage etc. i was wondering if there was a script of some sort that could do it for me. i would spare having the thumbnails if it wasnt possible, if i could simply insert a link to the picture that would be fine.

    any ideas? i want to do this for free, or as cheaply as possible.

    PHP is probably the way to go. http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_intro.asp. Cheap (free) and widely used, so many people can help you (including me :)). On thing, your webserver must support PHP in order to parse it.

    I am with the above.

    If you need a host that supports PHP, let me know. I dont want to shamelessly plug it right here.

    Do you have any programming experiences? If so, what languages?

    Hmm, I have quite a bit of knowledge on PHP, but I am no teacher. In other words, I think it's difficult for me to explain to you how PHP works. I know w3schools.org has quite good tutorials on PHP, also for beginners. You can use this website to gain knowledge about basic PHP scripting, and ask questions to us if you have any. This is not because I would not like to help you, but as I said, it's because I don't know how to teach.
    Oops, almost forgot, the website to the PHP part of w3schools is: http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_intro.asp
