View Full Version : noob question about url submitting

05-25-2007, 10:08 PM
Hey all,

I was wondering if you could give me a hand. This is the page I'm asking about:


Basically, the idea is that people would submit youtube links into the space provided there. (i understand that i would need to create a Form of some kind with a submit button) and then the link would show up on the yellow post-it note there...and then when they click the links on the post-it note...it transfers you to a new page of the site where people can view the youtube video:


I hope I've posted this in the right place...I really dont know if I would need to use PHP/MySQL to help me out here but any help would be so so appreciated.

Thank you all so much.

PHP/mysql would probably be the best method but does Youtube even allow you to do this? This isn't something someone is just going to write for you from scratch for nothing so get that idea out of your head. If you aren't willing to compensate for the work done then you might as well try to start doing it yourself and ask specific questions if you get stuck.

I'm sure youtube does allow this because a lot of people embed youtube videos on their blogs or sites using youtube's "embed" script on their pages. i wanted to do the same.

i'm not asking for anyone to do this at all. i mean, all i need is a point in the right direction....maybe a link to a tutorial or even the basic process of how its done because im not sure where to start. again, im a complete newbie so i'm really sorry if these questions/requests are asking a bit much.
