HELP! How do I post text from one page to another, while online. I want to create a template page that I can input text into it and it updates a box of text on another page. Any tutorials or ideas as to how this is done??
What I mean is-I am creating a page that is going to have several small boxes (like little billboards)all over it, and I want to be able to create template pages that I can input text into that will appear in the little boxes that are on another page. So I am trying to figure out where to begin-is this a cgi-script or can it be done in html??
Thanks for any and all help!!
if you look at my previous post, you see that the second page is getting its data from the first page (the opener)
insofar as can it be done in HTML -- see the first post.
if you are not simply swapping textbox values back & forth, you could still get the info from the "opener" and then document.write() the values. You can also use prompts to retrieve data. You can store the data in cookies and then repost the page without reasking the questions.
is it easier with cgi? not necessarily; it's just more permanent.
