I See You Like Writing In This Style, So I Shall As Well So As Not To Confuse You.
You Will Need A Database And A Server Side Language To Do This, Neither Of Which Tripod Provides. Therefore, You Cannot.

The US/generic service (tripod.lycos.com (http://www.tripod.lycos.com/)) provides CGI/Perl (Perl 5). However, the UK and other european Tripod services (tripod.lycos.co.uk (http://www.tripod.lycos.co.uk/)) support PHP 4.3 and MySQL.
im use Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 to make my site can that be used in any way???Dreamweaver is a glorified text editor. It is what's provided by your host that's important.

Wow, Lycos has improved vastly since I last looked at what they had to offer.
>> PHP 4.1
>> PHP Libraries (Send mail, PDF, JPEG, PNG…)
>> MySQL data base with PHP MyAdmin, an easy web-based administration for MySQL databases
That's quite an impressive feature set for free hosting.
My apologies, Mike.

Wow, Lycos has improved vastly since I last looked at what they had to offer.I'm not sure when they added these features, but it's been a while. I'm sure I've mentioned it before.
PHP 4.1That is out-of-date. The PHP4U (http://www.tripod.lycos.co.uk/build/php4u/) mentions 4.3, and the server headers indicate 4.3.8.
That's quite an impressive feature set for free hosting.Yeah, it's not bad. However, like most free hosts, they stuff junk into markup when adding their adverts. I have no problem with them requiring banners, but it would be nice if they inserted them intelligently. :(
