What would it take to create a system that would enable someone to visit a particular management page that would allow this person to provide content and have this content then come into view on the home page of a website?
The content might just be text that someone would type, but the text could have some words bolded, for example, so the text input would have to be "rich". on the other hand, this person might want to upload a picture to come into view in this space on the home page instead of text.
Is this possible?

Hey Aimy, yes indeed, this is quite easy to do. What you need is some kind of "content management system" (CMS), which allows a user to log in and enter content that is stored in a database and then appears on a designated page of the site. Often a whole site is built around a CMS (there are many to choose from, such as Drupal, MODx, ExpressionEngine), but if your site already exists and you just want to make the pages editable, there are lots of simpler options, such as Perch or CushyCMS.
Hope that helps.
