sorry for being late.
I want to save a text file path in the js variable so i can retrieve it later inside my html.
I want to retrieve the text inside a file that is uploaded on my server also but so when someone needs to edit the text to go inside the file edit and save it and the changes he did to be applied in the website.
Any help?
