New Here, Need Help Please
I've been searching for a script for a year and it has come to my conclusion that I need to ask for help with it. I have a nice website But it does all the coding for me.(thank God)
Here's my problem:
I have made some nice cards and I would like the viewers to be able to Add their Own Text to them and then send them, then I want their text to disappear and the page be refreshed for the next person to add Their Text. I want all the text one viewer adds AND the card to be able to be sent intact. ( not just the text.)
I know nothing of Java script coding and would have written directly to Peter Gehlig & Urs Dudli if I could have found an email to contact them with.
Is it possible that this kind of script is already written(where?) Or could be written? Could you please suggest to me, who to contact that could do this, because I am at a loss as to what and how to do it.
I truly need some expert advice from you guys and gals.
I really look forward to hearing from someone on this..You know what it's like trying to get something done and then you run into a snag and it stays undone. I searched for something for a year, that's long enough eh?
The only ones that I think have something like this is maybe Hallmark* cards, but I am not going in to steal someones code. Can someone help me please?
What does ' send' in "and then send them" mean? Email? Fedex? IM?
Unfortunately, that answer is needed for the 'next' step...
It would be like looking at this page and putting in some text on the page but not in a little window like this but on the card.
The viewer can then send the card with their text on it to their friends...Is this what you mean?
The card is then sent and then needs to clear for the next viewer to send .
Example Hyperthetical Card..Graphics already on the side of it
Happy Birthday to ________(whoever)
[Viewer puts in their own well wishes here. text
text text, text text text text about 10-12 lines of
Then able to put their name
then SEND It Here Action Button (the whole card with the text applied to it should be mailable
then the card should clear
then it is Fresh and empty for the next sender to send a message on it.
Basically you want something that allows a user to edit an html page, and then save the page under a new name with the changes temorarily.
I dunno how to do it. Just trying to clarify.
We really are going to need to know how the cards are to be sent - printed out & posted? emailed? sent by an internet messenger?
sounds like to me you want a e-card email system
Where is like a post card mailt to you in the mail box except this time its sent to you via email...
Am I correct??

OK Here's an Example Here
OK Here's an example of one of the fun pages I made (I picked a cute one just for you) At the bottom of the page I've put an explanation on it for you..I hope this helps to explain.
If you could visualize yourself wanting to send a card like this, think of how it could be done? This is where I lack the knowledge and know how...
NOTE: The already built in Tell a Friend Circle allows a person to write a message and send it , but the message does not go on the card itself, just in the email verifying where the card is at
I'd really appreciate it if you'd Let me know how would you proceed? Sorry I wrote in caps on my card but wanted to make sure you seen it..

Not to throw ya but might be workable
Not to throw you off of what we are allready discussing but I found a script that may be of use??? for this dilemma of mine it's at www.24fun.com
called Silly Forms Typer..it allows people to type text on a page. and lets them send it by Their own "hotmail account" and when put on a page it turns out to be a little window ,the font is much too large (28) I prefer Arial 12, I have no idea on how to enlarge or diminish something in a script or even if it's allowed, but I have NO idea if it also sends the document it's attached to..or just the message itself.
Do you know what I mean?

Sorry for all the typos
Jeepers, I must be tired, sorry about that.
I know what you mean exactly, but I still suggest that you don't use a script that changes the actual page, but that creates a new one, that is stored temporarily, that way someone doesn't run into another person's greeting.
Re: Rhino's post
Now Rhino, I am the one that doesn't understand what you mean.
Can you show me an example? or explain it so that I could?Please
I just went to my page and after I clicked on the "Tell A Friend Circle."..I viewed the source code for it(TAFC).
would there be a way to put that message window on my page,
I mean to make the action of it,,heck I am going to try to put there code on my page..I'll let you know what happens..
Well, here's the results...Suggestions?
I manipulated the code and got the message window on a page where one can type in text.
Problem the text, doesn't stay on the page after it is sent with the Tell A Fiend Circle..
See what I mean here.
I have no clue where to go from there..? Anyone??
(only the message of the TAFC stays on the email sent and a URL is given to get to the page and the text window is cleared...Try it you'll see what I mean..Send it to yourself,
Big Deal eh?
It doesn't work so now what do I do?
Please Don't Give Up on me..
Looks like everyone has forgotten about me..
