Is it possible for me to offer content to put onto other peoples site with the following situation. I have purchased a script which rotates text on a daily basis on my site(http://www.dailyspark.com). I use ssi on my site, but can display the content from a single page, for example: http://dailyspark.com/cgi/daily/dose...okes.txt&jokes
I think properly this may belong in the server-side scripting forum.
However, one simple way is to put the material on a text or html page others can freely access and then call into a frame, iframe, Java applet, etc., on their own sites. That is, however, plainly somewhat limiting.
Server-side, you can script this and have your clients call the script from their sites. But *caution caution caution* here, as this brings up issues concerning your server security.
Another factor to consider is whether or not you want to foot the bandwidth on such inclusionary content. Any way you slice it, if it comes off your server, you're paying the traffic.
Currently I am offering free jokes to other webmasters through a popup window - http://dailyspark.com/link/index.htm. But I want for the content to be easily intergrated into their webpage. I don't know anything about xml, so I might just stick with the way things are right now.
1) <iframe></iframe> is Microsoft's answer to Netscape's <ilayer></ilayer>
2) Do you want the other site to include your page or just your jokes? If the former, it is a security issue because otherwise unscrupulous (sp?) people would go about swiping entire sites.
3) If you just want to provide them with the jokes (and a credit mention):
One alternative is to place your jokes in an array in a js file and give the other site access to the file. They could then pick myJoke, myJoke, etc and display it as they prefer.
I believe etLux is trying to say you should redesign your table so that the iframe/ilayers are outside of the tables. For example:
<table>table above the iframe/ilayer</table>
<table><tr><td>left side of page</td></tr></table>
<table>right side of page</table>
<table> table below iframe/ilayer</table>
