    Question I have a business that has distributors. I want to provide my content and allow my distributors/resellers to build a custom page on the front end with their company name and info on it. I only want to allow them a limited number of design options and I don't want them to be able to change the content I provide. A good example of what I want to do can be found at www.vstore.com What I don't know is how did they do it and specifically how can my business??

    Please help!!

    There are several ways to do this one why would to use CGI/perl. This I feel would be the easiest because you should be able to find a script already written that would only need a little customization on your part.

    1.) Create a form for your affilates to fill out. Include things like where their banner is stored(if you want allow them to upload it to your site), Company name, address, etc...

    2.) Next store the information in a flat file for future access.

    3.) At this point you may either choose to parse the flat file every time the page is loaded(bad) or create a HTML file with the affilates info and store it on your server.(better)

    This is the main idea behind the script but you may include others features as you please.

    I hope things work out for you and good luck in the future.
