I have a web page that is setup already. All I need to do is add two parts a link list and a paragraph that will change monthly. I usually can find what I need but I am drawinga blank today.
Any help will be apriciated. THanks in advance.

well that's kind of vague... what were you needing help doing? see, you store your content in a database or file, and then use php to dynamically display that info on your page, even at certain regular times if you want (with cron jobs). was there something specific you needed help in doing, such as how to connect to your database? how to store information in your database or file? How to update or retrieve the information? How to display it?
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
