Scott;
It only dawned on me today what little gem you have created here. I needed something whereby the user can update a set of prices via a text file and bingo!!!!
Great piece of work!!! Well done :)

Just one question:
How do I get it to read multiple lines? <BR>

I like this extension. Good idea!
Maybe a .txt file writer would be great 'behind' a login system this way users could update that file without 'messing around' with the server... :D

Hi Scott;
Is there any way to maintain the tab space that is saved within the txt file? What I mean is for example:

You type

Special Deal ---------------------------> £200
Now if I have this there should a that space between the £200 and Deal but the extension shows Deal £200

Take a look at this

Hi B, the only way for now is to include this html in the text file...

Code: Select all

&nbsp

example: Special Deal &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp £200
I've added it on the demo page if you want to see the outcome.

I'll take a look at the extension and try to implement it, but it might be a week or so cause i've got the kids on school hols and going away for a few days :)

Scott
