Cool Introduction, and looking for a script

Hey guys,

I've been lurking around here for a month or so, and I'm extremely impressed by the wealth of knowledge possessed by all of you.

About a year and a half ago I maintained a web site doing about 900k to 1 million impressions monthly, but eventually ended up dumping the project. Advertising revenue wasn't all that hot back then, or at least it didn't seem to be.

Anyway, I'm working on a new project, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

Ok, enough of that. I'm wondering if anyone can help me locate a script. I've seen them around, and emailed a webmaster or two but never received a response. I need a script that will allow me to enter a list of URL's into a text file each indexed with a different number. I would then like to be able to link to these URL's throughout my website by calling the number associated with the URL through a CGI program. If the script were to record the number of hits received by each link, that would be a plus.

An example of what the link might look like would be: http://whatever.com/jump.cgi?ID=1

Thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to help me out.

Take care,
Ken

welcome ken- ,i am sure there are scripts that do this...

one that comes to mind but isn't the exact thing you are looking for is Gossamer Thread's link script which is a search directory script.. which i use at http://www.theprequels.net/pages/
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/

when you add sites to the categories each is assigned an ID number

i.e in http://www.theprequels.net/pages/General_Sites/

my friend' site at www.swfans.net will have the link
http://www.theprequels.net/cgi-bin/links/jump.cgi?ID=37 which will point that to swfans.net

i think if you installed the links script in a htaccess passworded protected directory and added your links to it you could just use the cgi url

and also it does count the number of hits out on the pages

i.e.
http://www.theprequels.net/pages/General_Sites/

you can also set up categories for organising your sites links. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Thanks to the both of you for the advice. I have used lnkinlte.cgi before, but I probably won't be able to use it for this project only because I will have upwards of 500 links involved. If you've used the script, you probably know that in the admin menu, every single link is listed on that one page, and that would be a major hassle to maintain.

The Links (jump.cgi) program will be perfect, because the directory of sites will actually help me maintain what I am going to be doing, even if the directory isn't visible to my visitors.

What I really need to do is learn some Cold Fusion, because that would cut out a few good hours of work.

Thanks again,
Ken

Cool

Hello,

you could try this script : http://www.confine.com/programs/antileech.html

it's very easy to use , because you can add links , by admin menu , or just editing a file http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif


And it can handle pretty big amount of links http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Bye.
