Hello all,

I'm looking for some help. What I want to do is quite simple only I don't have the knowledge or expertise in web development. I need a web page with a text field, which when submitted parses and saves the information to a table to be viewed. That is pretty much it to be honest. I was thinking it can be done with just a 2 page site. 1 to post the data and 1 to display the table. A filter/sort option would be a bonus for the table or even just a search box would do.

The data to be pasted into the text field follows the same format mostly. I've put the text I need in the table in bold. It is always either "is in the" or "is at" before the location I need in the table, the location does change though. Everything not in Bold is text I don't need in the table.

Example data:

I've found your scumsucker.

She is in the Boranai system, Throne Worlds constellation of the Domain region.
OR It's like this
He is at Amarr VIII (Oris) - Emperor Family Academy station in the Amarr system, Throne Worlds constellation of Domain region.

With regards,

In terms of security I don't need a username/password system. Just a password would do it. If anyone can help me out I would be eternally greatful.

If you don't have any experience, it's going to be challenging for you. There are various components to get this working.

You need a web server, access to a database. A few HTML pages, and some server side scripting.

Do you have anything code done?

I have a host, with a database (MySQL, web server also supports PHP.) At the moment I have 0 code. I haven't done web developement for almost 12 years.

I'm assuming it's just a simple text field with a submit button on 1 page that sends it to a PHP script/page to be parsed/saved/displayed

Is this meant to be static info displayed on your website or are you getting data from a database?

Hi,

The data follows the same format. The message is copied and pasted from a mail generated elsewhere.

If the parsing of the message to too complex I can just get the users to paste only the data tht is required.

All I require is:

Data and Time
Name
Location

I only require those 3 headings in the table
