Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my question.
I am currently moving a static html site into a faux CMS and have a question about which direction is best recommended.
I have series of 'News Articles' that I would like to make available through a db. Each article is approximately 1000 words. Setting up this db is not such a problem, except since I already have all these articles in formatted html, I was thinking I could just list the article titles and URLS to the articles in the DB and do something like:
$content = file_get_contents($url);
All this does though is open the full html page.
What I am wondering is how can I open an html page into a new template.
My other question is can I target different parts of an html page (divs?) to display in this template?
Or am I just better off dumping all the articles into my database?
Anybody have any suggestions/recommendations I would greatly appreciate it!
