View Full Version : How do I add mousetrails to a CGI script?

OK, here's the problem. I am using a forum program called YaBB. I would like to add a mousetrail to each page.

The process is relatively simple, the CGI (PL) script in this case refers to a HTML file called "template.html" which is used as a css for the entire forum. I have added the mousetrail script to the "template.html" and tested "template.html" on the computer. This works fine. The mousetrail works exactly as supposed to.

Now when I load the modified "template.html" onto the server the mousetrail doesn't work. Since the "template.html" is in the cgi bin of the server, I thought maybe it could not call up the graphics from there, so I moved the graphics to a "public" folder on the server and changed the path to the graphics in the script to match. Still nothing.

Any help would be appreciated. I don't think this is a call up problem with two of the same scripts because the thing works perfectly on my system, just doesn't work on the server.

Any help is appreciated.

Try doing the sqme for the script as You did for the images - create a .js file somewhere, then include it in the template.html as <script language="JavaScript src="...">
