    Default Auto page direct

    On www.PenderHarbour.org, I have one page for each month of the year for
    local events. These 12 pages are children of the Calendar parent page, but
    I'd like to skip that step.
    Is there a way, preferably with .html, to have the program read the current
    date, isolate the month and send the visitor to that month's page when he
    clicks on Calendar?

    I was told it can be done with Flash, but I'm Flash-illiterate. I was told I
    should get with the times and turn the whole site .php, but I hate .php
    sites. Am I hopelessly trapped in the dark ages and thus stuck with that
    parent Calendar page?

    All comments and suggestions appreciated.

    Water,

    Really not much difference from an HTML page and a PHP page. Could be as
    little a difference as changing the page name extension. Try it on one of
    your pages. Change the page name extension to PHP and it still renders the
    same. That said, if you want your page to run a small script to
    determine the current month and redirect to the appropriate month page you
    will need to use a script and it can easily done using PHP.

    Thanks, (alter)Chuck,

    So I guess the short answer is that I can't get there from here with .html.

    I've seen many layout glitches on .php sites from reputable developers, so
    I'm leery about trying my hand. As well, and perhaps this is my imagination,
    pages seem to load slowly and hang up frequently. But, knowing next to
    nothing about .php, I'm not a good one to evaluate its efficiency and grace.

    So, to start at Square One, can one build a .php website with NOF? Will I
    lose WYSIWYG? I use Ver. 10 and am, well, you can look at my website.

    Thanks for the link, it answered the question I will likely need answered if
    I dive into .php.

    Water,

    First off you have to be on a host that offers PHP. Most do. If not there
    are other ways of doing scripting (Javascript, ASP, etc). Since many hosts
    have PHP and since there's so much info on the web for PHP I think it to be
    a good option. It could be that the PHP sites you've visited were poorly
    programmed or that the host had a slow server, many reasons for poor
    performance.

    Yes you can make your pages PHP with Fusion. It's so easy. If you want
    Fusion to publish all of your pages with a PHP extension take a look at the
    attached graphic (image1.gif). If you want Fusion to publish only a
    specific page with a PHP extension take a look at screenshot (image2.gif).
    Unless you've got WAMP of some other local version of PHP on your computer
    you'll have to upload the pages to your site to see them function. Try it
    with a current page as is. Nothing to it.

    Sorry for taking so long to come back and thank you for the info and links--
    greatly appreciated!
    It appears that I've got a lot to learn about .php before I make the jump
    into incorporating it into my websites.
