Is there a widget that helps to add links ?

im thinking along these lines. Someone wants to add their link to my page. So they fill in a form giving me their anchor text and web address. Then they add a link to my site on their site. Then the widget checks to see if they have added the link and if its ok the form will notify me and i can add the link.

Ive seen this sort of thing of many websites and was wondering if I can do something similar?

Hi cmd ceramics:

That's a very interesting proposition.

I do not believe our Site Builder supports this type of functionality at the present time, but 'd like to see what the rest of the SynthaSite community forum members have to say on the subject.

When you say that you've seen this sort of thing on many websites, could you mention a few instances, to give us all a more complete picture?

From what you describe though, this sounds like a feature that would require a good deal of development hours, for a widget to be able to dynamically communicate directly across to another user's website widget.

We're always happy to hear about features / functionality ideas from our users, so keep them coming...

Hi Adrienne,

Heres a link to a webpage ive been looking at http://www.phpjunkyard.com/php-link-m...

The script needs uploading to the host server so cannot be used with synthasite but I think it would be a big help to some of us if we could.
We could even create directories with this thing !

some programs give you a similar feature for free. here are two examples: http://htmlgear.lycos.com/specs/link.... and http://bravenet.com/webtools/freelink/. they might not be exactly what you are looking for, but they are a good last resort if you don't find what you are looking for. I use the first one for my site.

also, i don't know if you've realized it or not, but the links on the bottom of your site go to the ide.synthasite........ page instead of the actual page. either it was a glitch in the builder, or you copied the preview url instead of your sites url

best of luck

glad you like it. my site is currently undergoing a complete style and content renovation, but if you'd like you can still add your link at my link page; http://www.gamedemonarcade.com/Link_E...

thanks, have a great day
