we are getting to the technical stuff! If you want to
do any of the following, you will need to use CGI:
allows you to get your visitors to send information to
your web server, which then processes the information
and sends back a web page, which has been modified by
that information. The processing is done at the server,
rather than the visitor's computer. To use CGI, you will
your own counter
your own guest book
a virtual card service to all browsers
server which allows CGI access - check your own web
server and see if they allow this. If not, there are
a number of 'free' servers on the web which will grant
this. Check out Virtual
Avenue and Hypermart.
If you are setting up a commercial site, then, you
should request CGI access from which ever server you
purchase web space on.
You need to learn a programming language, the most widely
used one seems to be Perl - sorry, we're not offering
information on Perl
at this time, but BigNoseBird
is a site which will.
