I searched google, yahoo, and other site for yahoo status gen.

that is basically what i'm going to do, however without the AIM.

Is there any script that I can use for this?

Thank you

This is kinda hard to explain on what I want, please reply if you want more info about this.

You used to be able to do it like this:

$result = file_get_contents('http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=' . $username);
$size = strlen($result);
if ($size == 140)
echo 'Online';
echo 'Offline';
But, you'll have to check into the sizes or whatever yourself.

If you have PHP5 you can just use filesize() (http://php.net/filesize) directly with the URL.

So basically what I have is a form. I got the form down.
The only thing that I don't get is how to make an image with their Yahoo name.

Let's say my username is yahooo. I entered yahooo down.
After I submit this, an image will be made as yahooo.gif
and I can use this anywhere I put it.
