Automatically Format a Page Update (2 posts)

    I have a static page (not blog page). A certain person will be tasked with adding information to this page from the dashboard periodically. This information will consist of a sentence, a photograph then a paragraph.

    Example...it would be like the title of a photo, the photo and then a paragraph about that photo.

    I would want each update to add to the top of the existing page. I would like the sentence, the photo and the paragraph to automatically format a specific way once entered. Does this sound like something 'easily' done. Is there something out there that does this already? Am I posting in the wrong place? Thank you.

    This type of application just cries out "Table". I did it myself using a non-WordPress tool to create each row of the Table in a separate Database, then wrote php code within a WordPress Shortcode to automatically extract and format each row of the Table on to a Page.

    Since then, I've discovered Plugins that make it easy to enter info into a new Table within the WordPress database, which would have been a better way than what I did.
