I wish to have banner advertising on my site with links to internal and/or external locations. I require a different banner to be displayed each time someone visits the site. How can I use FP97 to acomplish this task?
ps. I am a programming barbarian armed only with enthusiasm and a copy of "Frontpage for Dummies"

I'm afraid you need some CGI programming to reach your goal.

Good luck, julio

CGI may not be necessary ... there are Java Applets designed for that purpose - and FP97 should give you the ability to include applets and specify their PARAMS

Several such applets are out there - this one (http://users.aol.com/hoskepub/adbanner/index.html) should suffice.  if not, perhaps gamelan (http://www.gamelan.com) has a better alternative.

Granted, this may seem a bit advanced to a "programming barbarian" - but you're trying to accomplish a fairly sophisticated task, so there's going to be a learning curve.
