Thanks for the quick answer.

I tried to do a $POST request first, but did not get it to work  
disregarding the current user auth level. Is there a simple way to  
call this, so that the page gets updated?

Before i tried:
     $_POST['text'] = (join("\n", $text));
     $_POST['post'] = 'Save ';
     $handle        = $HandleActions['edit'];
     return $handle($pagename);

But as i said, i don't know how to call it for a user that is not  
logged in (noticed that it works for an logged in edit user fine, but  
not for a non logged in user.).

Would be really happy, if you could tell me, if and how this could  
work :)

Best Regards,
