    update page announcements?

    Does anyone know of a way to have a page full of links which let you you know when the target page has been updated?

    For example:
    www .siteone. com - updated 2 days ago
    www .sitetwo. com - updated 5 days ago

    and so on, so that you can detect when the pages are updated through the one page rather than visiting the site itself?

    Hope I explained well enough.

    Thanks

    diaryland.com has a feature that update their 'buddylist' in the way I mentioned so that whenever you go to a page it tells you when your 'buddies' last updated. I assume they can do this because they have access to the actual database, otherwise I'm not sure.

    Wouldn't even know how to start about it

    I'd assume it's serverside, as you can't connect to other sites and get info from them with JS (not that I know of anyway)

    Yes, cg9com you do have to log in to see it in action. I have attached the source code of the buddylist page but can't see anything that stands out - I assume as he has the database he reads it from that somehow.

    Thanks

    My host allows php4. As far as their 'support' goes it's very lame. I'm trying to get information from them with regards to databases so I can set up a forum - let's just say they're a little slow to respond to my queries.

    Do you think it will be possible for me to do it with php, any idea how?

    Should I go repost in the php section?

    Thanks

    you wont, php coding cant be viewed with source, even if it was coded into the page.
    as goes with any server side language.
