Miles, two possible solution to that could be: either learning to use
mod_rewrite for Apache or an ISAPI equivalent for IIS; or adopt a PHP-based
CMS (Content Management System) to do the same thing.  On mod_rewrite & PHP,
check notabene's evolt article on this subject (and the comments to it!):

For a CMS system, your choices are huge.  Since you have little experience
with coding, and probably are working on a sharp timeline, this might be
your best option.  Google for possible commercial options; A couple of
excellent free open source CMSs are Drupal and Mambo, though there are
gaggles of them listed at opensourceCMS:
