hi, im thinking of setting up a webring, i did start one but it was on our old explorer site - it used www.bravenet.com
it was ok but does any one know of a site that helps people to build webrings
or,
does anyone know how to build a web ring?

thanks

1st thing you need is a database in the database you hold

Some Thing Like

ID WebSiteTitle URL
1 4th Golcar www.4thgolcarscoutgroup.org.uk
2 2nd Somewhere www..........


Then you setup a page that does serverside somethinglike

http://www.mywebring.net/Page.php?id=1&action=next

The php page strips the id off the url so you know which site the link came from
and strips of the action

It then goes to the database looks up the id then fins the url of the next/last (depending on the action) site in the ring and automatically redirects you

if you goto hotscripts.com or any similar place theres loads of PHP scripts for doing this sort of thing that just need installing and then are ready to use if you cant be bothered to make one
