I am running a free graphic designing site after initial good response I am shifting this site to new server with enhanced features
I want my users to click on ads to activate their free graphic request processing . How can I do that??
Presently when people fill out a free graphic request form they are taken to form successfully submitted page
What I want is to show a ads page after they submit form, when they click on ad only than they should be taken to form successfully submitted page.
I saw this on bravenet.com when i signed up for free poll service.
any help would be appreciated. (my server support php, perl and other languages but no ASP)
Basically, you could use an intermediate page to process the request.
==click an ad and go to 'adsuccess.php?membernumb=000&adnumb=111'
==check to make sure the referrer and/or the script being called directly from exterior source
==update the database of the user so he/she has a full priviledged account, then use header() in PHP(I know this a LOT more than Perl).
OR OR OR OR
==code now says 'Thank you for your support' and redirects through a meta tag to the page, instead of using the header function of PHP.
Redirects to main.php?ad=000
==code looks for $_GET['ad'] and opens a popup to that page.
PAGEONE--the signup form ( click )
PAGETWO--list of advertisers to click on( click )
PAGETHREE--updates database saying the message thank you, along with your emta refresh( refresh )
PAGEFOUR--whatever page you want the user redirected to
