    christofides, If you want to put this on the page you have on your profile, you can seach around Geocities. If you do not care for what they have you can do a search for "remotely hosted scripts". You would not be able to install any off the shelf scripts though.

    Hrm

    If you want, I could whip up a quick php/mysql coutner..

    Bascilly, in php, to make a counter, you do something like so

    Code:
    <?
    $counter = '0';
    ++$counter;
    echo "$counter";
    ?>
    Basiclly, it starts the coutner at 0, and adds one to it, and displays it

    If you want a demo of how this could work, you could use

    Code:
    <?
    $counter = '0';
    while($counter <= 10) {
    ++$counter;
    echo "$coutner";
    }
    ?>

    My while statement above doesn't "work"

    This is correct,
    Code:
    <?
    $counter = '0';
    while($counter < 10) {
    ++$counter;
    echo "$counter<br>";
    }
    ?>
    Now, do you know how to create tables in mysql and such?

    Dear Zaire,
    Thank you for your reply.
    I know some basic about tables in html.

    But I can not say that I know how to make tables in the mysql and such.
    But I can learn, as I learned what I know up to now.
    Is there in the web a guide or something, about that?

    Here ya go

    This is a great place for php - http://www.php.net

    also, http://www.zend.com

    php is a server-side scripting language, and probably the easiest language to learn out there.

    Not sure if Geocities support it? Anyone know?

    If you want 'plug in' guestbook, counter and all the other myriad goodies available the you won't go far wrong at

    http://www.bravenet.com

    Where BraveNet score is the ease of install. It's usually a case of cut+paste. However, using a 'plug in' you will not learn a thing about how it works. Also, you get banner ads.

    Depends on your priorities. To be honest, I would learn about HTML indepth, CSS, Javascript, http and then server-side (php or asp). Then you will have really learned the nuts and bolts of web design/development.

    Back to square 1 yet? Geocities does support its own cgi scripts, not others. They do not support PHP, this is why I suggested to use those that Geocities offer or to try a "remotely hosted" script.

    As Dean stated Bravenet does offer this, however I would not recommend there http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=12486

    Gah. Cheers for the info, Dave. I'll stop recommending people that don't even understand how there own system works.


    Chris, for remotely hosted scripts, Dave has a whole directory of tried and tested providers -

    http://www.ahfb2000.com/cgi-bin/links/pages/Scripts/Remotely_Hosted/

    Better than Bravenet!
