  1. UPDATE:Look at the progress that I have made trying to do the site on my own http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/redirection2/Username: demoPassword: demoI've kinda figured out how to do the subdomain - I will have to find a host that supports WildCard DNS (which means that when you type in xxxxx.yourdomain.com, you get yourdomain.com/xxxxx). Anyway, I'll figure out that later.The question that I have now is something that I think that some of you here may understand and can explain to me: How can I redirect the users page using http://mysite.com/xxxxxx. Once I figure out this I should be able to figure out how to make that a subdomain.Here is part of the code that I am using to create the masked URL: <iframe frameborder="0" height="100%" src="HTTP://THEIR-SITE.COM" width="100%"><script>location="HTTP://THEIR-SITE.COM"</script><a href="HTTP://THEIR-SITE.COM>HTTP://THEIR-SITE.COM</a></iframe></td></table> As you see, I need to be able to replace HTTP://THEIR-SITE.COM with the users actual site. Is there anyway to do this using http://mysite.com/username. I know that you can do this by using http://mysite.com?id=username, but that wouldn't work with this.Do you understand what I mean?Thanks for the help :)Aaron
  2. Thanks a lot everyone for the replies :)So would I be able to do the same job in PHP that a competitor site uses CGI for?I just downloaded the trial version of Cold Fusion and I will try to figure out how to implement it with my site.The only issue now is how to allow them to instantly create a subdomain on my site. I have researched this but I can't figure it out. There are thousands of free hosting sites that do this so I know its possible.
  3. So I am guessing that I would need to create databases for this? That is where I have been running into problems because I am not good with MySQL.
  4. The 1pennyhosting.cjb.net was just an example that I created redirecting to http://1pennyhosting.com to show what the redirection looks like.And I have been wondering the same thing - why the email? I want to create a simple 1-2-3 form:1. Username (www.xxxxx.mysite.com)2. Password3. Site that you want to redirect to.Why would I need anything else? I also don't like the annoying layer ad. I know that it would make more money but I would rather attract 3X more customers by reducing the advertising.I will probably use http://elance.com but I don't know how much to pay for something like this. If anyone is familiar with outsorcing, I would appreciate some advice :)ThanksAaron
  5. Well, I know that CJB.net (a competitor site) uses CGI. The only problem is I don't know much at all about CGI. I've only dealt with a few PHP sites in the past and I'm no pro at that either.Here is CJB's registration page:http://www.cjb.net/cgi-bin/register.cgiAnd here is an example of one of their redirected pages:http://1pennyhosting.cjb.netDoes anyone have any ideas about how they may have done it, and how I could do the same?If I can't figure this out I may pay someone to set it up for me. Any suggestions for a cheap programmer or how to find one? And how much should I pay for something simple like this?Thanks a ton :)Aaron
  6. Hi,I am in the process of creating a URL redirection site and I need some help/advice. I have the following code setup for the site: <html><body bottommargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" rightmargin="0" scroll="no" topmargin="0"><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" height="100%" width="100%"><td height="31" width="100%"><div style="height:31px;overflow:hidden"><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" height="31" width="100%"><td align="left" height="31" valign="top"><center>Logo Here</center></td></td></table></div></td><tr><td height="100%" width="100%"><iframe frameborder="0" height="100%" src="http://yahoo.com" width="100%"><script>location="http://yahoo.com"</script><a href="http://yahoo.com">http://yahoo.com</a></iframe></td></table> And it looks like this: http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/redirecting/index.php.But I need to figure out how to do two more things:#1 - How they can create their redirection using a form? I am wanting something simple, like this: Username (www.xxxxx.mysite.com): _____________Password* : ______________"Create Page" * I would rather have a random passcode generated so they can change their URL if this is possible.I just can't figure out the easiest way to do this - will I have to use MySQL?And problem #2 is that I have no idea how to set this up to where their username is a subdomain that is automatically setup at signup. I have seen other sites that do this but I have no clue about it.Any help would be appreciated ThanksAaronPS: I put this in the PHP section because that is what I would like to write it in, unless there is an easier way.
  7. Hey, I'm now having some pretty big problems. I added some feeds to the homepage.php and I'm getting an error message. Here is an example of the code that I'm using: <?php{ if($a) echo "<div>////////////Joke of the moment </div><div><table style="border-collapse: collapse;" bordercolor="#000000" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3" width="100%" border="1"><tbody><tr><td valign="top" width="100%"><div><strong>Joke Of The Moment</strong></div><script language="JavaScript" src="http://www.jokeornot.com/random_humor.php?feed_id=2121" type="text/javascript"></script><div> <font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="1">Powered by <a href="http://www.jokeornot.com/" target="_blank">Joke or Not</a> </font></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>";} And here is the error that I am getting:http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/PIC-OF-...AY/homepage.phpIs it because of the html code that I am using on the if($a) coding?
  8. As for the RSS feeds, I used http://rssfeedreader.com/. They have a small link at the bottom of the feed, but I don't care because it seemed to be the easiest way to do it.Here is a page where I uploaded the feeds that I think will interest the majority of people:http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/PIC-OF-THE-DAY/feeds.phpAnd here is the rest of the free content that I will offer for their homepage:http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/PIC-OF-THE-DAY/index9.phpI don't know whether I should add more or if thats enough. They can pick and choose which feeds, jokes, etc to use, so maybe I should look for some more content. The way I look at it is "Would I use this as my homepage?". I will not be satisfied until I can answer yes to that.PS:I can't figure out a way to where they can edit their link. Since the link will be http://mysite.com/homepage.php?a=1&b=1, I need a way to where they can come back to the http://mysite.com/changeinfo.php page and update their info for when I add new feeds.I doubt they will be too happy if they have to completely redo all of their page options just to add a new feed. Is there any way that this could possibly be done? The only thing I can think of is to have them click "Edit" from the homepage and send them back to the changeinfo.php page WITH the "?a=1&b=1" attached. Then the checkboxes from their current homepage.php page would be checked off. Do you see what I'm saying? I don't know of a code that will automatically check off certain checkboxes by using the address bar url though.Thanks for the help. Aaron
  9. I just fiddled around with it until I found a solution. Both processes are not done at the same time, but it will do. Thanks a lot for the help!http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/PIC-OF-.../changeinfo.php
  10. As far as I know, I'm not related to the driving instructor .Anyway, thanks for the help. I'm still having problems though. Although I have figured out how to create the url, I am having trouble getting it to where the user can add it as their homepage. Here is the "Add Homepage" code: <a href="#" onClick="this.style.behavior='url(#default#homepage)';this.setHomePage('http://mysite.com?a=1&b=1');">Click here to make this your default homepage</a> I would like the user to have the ability to check off what info they want on their homepage, and then click a link that will automatically add it as their homepage using the code above. Is this possible?PS: I couldn't figure out how to allow them to create it under thier own name and hide the code. However, I don't think I will need this for now. Thanks anyway
  11. Hi, my name is Aaron Bondurant and I'm new at this forum. I've been trying to develop a homepage script that will allow users to create a customized start page for their browser (WITHOUT having to login to anything). I've been using PHP code because it's the only code that I'm familar with. Everything I've learned has been from looking at other people's code and trying to copy it to what I want my site to do.Anyway, I want the scipt to have RSS feeds, joke of the day, pic of the day, etc. I would like it where the user can create their own personalized homepage without using MySQL or logging in to anything. And the only solution that I can come up with to pull this off is to use the following code on the homepage: <?php{ if($a) echo "feed 1";}{ if($b) echo "Joke of the day";}?> Then they will have their own link like this: http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/file1.php?a=1&b=1&c=1&d=1&e=1&f=1&g=1&h=1&i=1&j=1 Ex. ODD numbers only: http://www.surplusmagazineshop.com/file1.php?a=1&b=0&c=1&d=0&e=1&f=0&g=1&h=0&i=1&j=0 I believe that this solution will do the trick. The only problem is how will the users create this URL. I know that 99% of the people that use this homepage will not know PHP or how to edit links. Therefore, I want a page where they can check off which feeds they want to display and click "Create Homepage" at the bottom. Then this will give them the full url to add as their homepage in their Internet Options menu. Thus, it will automatically give them a customized homepage that they won't have to logon to, etc.I know a little about "Mail Me" forms, but I couldn't figure out how to make a form like this. Can anyone give any suggestions?Thanks
