    Trying to get "Submit" into a scrolling box...

    Ok, i'm about the biggest newbie when it comes to this as anyone...Everything i've been able to do so far was an easy Google search...

    So i'm going to start by showing you how big of a fail my page is...

    http://testing.nvctruth.com

    What i'm trying to figure out is how to take input from the "Submit" box and add a date to it and have it scroll in the box above it...

    As i'm sure you can tell from just checking the source on that page...its a bit of a mess, any suggestions on cleaning it up a bit would be awesome too!

    I'm assuming you want to actually save things people type in there, so you're going to need to use PHP or some other server side language, plus a database like mySQL. Are you familiar with these at all?

    You could also Google for shoutbox scripts...that's essentially what you're creating. If you don't care to create your own you may find a nice free one to just drop on your page.

    Let us know what experience you have with PHP/mySQL or equivalent.

    haha, honestly? None, but i have no experience with html, java, css or any of that either....The internet is great in that way...it gives those who would never be able to know the ability to learn with a google search....

    With all that said....I'm going to go look at shoutbox scripts!

    Ok, i found this website... http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/emarquee.htm

    And i'm trying to adapt that to my website...here's the code that's...not working...

    <IE: Download ID="marqueedata" STYLE="behavior:url(#default#download)" />
    <marquee id="externalmarquee" direction=up scrollAmount=4 style="width:200px;height:150px;border:1px
    solid black;padding:3px" onMouseover="this.scrollAmount=2" onMouseout="this.scrollAmount=4"
    src=http://testing.nvctruth.com/testfile.html>
    </marquee>
    <script language="JavaScript1.2">
    function downloaddata(){marqueedata.startDownload(externalmarquee.src,displaydata)}
    function displaydata(data){externalmarquee.innerHTML=data}

    if (document.all)
    window.onload=downloaddata </script>
    EDITED TO ADD: It seems to work in IE, which would make sense given the IE Tag...
