I want to have a different hyperlinked image displayed each time a surfer logs into my home page. The links with be internal ones as I just want to assist navigation, but they may be external in the future. Can I do (if so How do I do) this using fp98?

You have to use CGI programming in order to achieve this. With pure FP98 HTML, this is impossible. Also, FP98 does not really provide this feature. You can create a slide show that changes the images after a certain amount of time. Now, if you set this time to 86400 seconds, then the image is changed once a day, but only if the page remains loaded.

hope this helps.

I think this can be done by using javascript if a CGI-bin is not available.  I have done something similar at least.

More details upon request.

also, FYI, if it matters, you have a duplicate question out there in this forum and may want to delete that before you lose the points.

There will be a list of JavaScript applets that will do exactly what you want.
And like that other person said, no, you can't do that with pure FP98 - you need a JavaScript applet, like you can get above.
