To change the information, just ftp new files to replace the old ones. To change the LOOK of the pages, you'll have to edit the html files with edit/"word processing" software or an html editor (which "helps" you). PAF isn't an HTML editor, and only gives you so many choices on the things that appear on your page. I have an initial page that puts all the "personal" stuff and then links to each of the family genealogy files created by PAF. You will have to place each of the family files in separate folders/directories, as PAF creates them using the same names. You can do a "view source" on my pages for an example:
If you choose to "edit" the look of your files, you'll have to do that each time you update your data as PAF will recreate the files the way IT wants them to look and not in your "edited" way.
