    How Can You Do This?!?

    Hi, I need to know how you can make an updatable link on a page. For instance, have a text field where I or anyone surfing my webpage can type in the link,(for instance if they wanted to do www.codingforums.com they would type in "codingforums" then click submit and have it update the page so that when anyone clicked the link it would take them to codingforums.com. How can this be done?

    you would need to use either a text file or a database, and also use a scripting language such as .asp or php, ask in the php or asp forums for any other help

    good luck

    JavaScript-- input type="text" and location.href in the callback should do the trick.

    He wants to make this updateable for everyone though, which cannot be done with a client side language.
