    I have a web site where I post a new trivia quiz each week. The problem is, I have to manually upload the new page every Sunday night. Is there a way (Java script/applet?) that I can have a couple quizes on the site (i.e "quiz1.htm", "quiz2.htm", "quiz3.htm", etc.) and have the site automatically pull in a new quiz page each week?

    I've been searching the Java applet sites and I can't seem to find anything. I'm guessing this is more database driven. I'm not into databasing so if I can't do it easily with some java script or app, then I'll stick to the current way.

    Do you need to prevent people from pulling future quizzes early? If not, simple JavaScript would do it. You'd post multiple versions, then when the person loads the main page, the JavaScript figures out what day it is (on the person's computer, which could be off) and redirects to the appropriate quiz.
