How do you indicate whether a user is online within an html document.  Used for icq lists.
Watch Question

you are going to have to send more information about what you are asking icq to do.. that way maybe I can help you.

ICQ provides a personal web page thingy which may be what you are asking for, I'm not sure.  You can find out about this at: http://wwp.mirabilis.com/ (note that it's wwp not www -->wierd)
If you are talking about just regular (newest version) icq then that should show you automatic, that is not a problem. If its :something else : give more info on what you want to do. :)

thanx, that was just what i was looking for.
Now, i am wondering if there is a way to use a form to enter the information on my icq list.  I want it so that someone can fill out the form and they will be updated to the list.  I have seen this done before, so i know there is a way to do it.  Thank you.

Are you talking about the list on your webpage?  If so, you need to use a CGI script to do that....


yes, how do i do that?

Well, its pretty complicated....you need access to the server's perl program.  And you need either access to the server's CGI-BIN or at least be able to create your own CGI-BIN....after you find out if you have that....you need to go to some site that gives out free CGI scripts and find one that suits your needs.....
Here is a good site...
