    Question Virtual: "Light a Memorial Candle" Possible?

    I'd like to create a page where people could light a virtual memorial candle for a deceased loved one. I have a memorial/tribute site that I want to do this on, and I am not sure if it can be done using HTML, or if it requires a more complicated language? If you go to http://jason-gauthier.memory-of.com/Candles.aspx you will understand what I am trying to say.

    I want the same thing, only my own design, where I control the background color and the candle style, etc. I'm thinking of maybe a llight silver background that is stable, while a frosted white (yet somewhat see-through) table floats on top, with the candle and message. Could someone help me? Please? Thanks!

    It can be done, but not with HTML. You'll need a server-side script to handle storage of lit candles.

    We probably can, but not without more information about your server We'll need to know:
    1) What server-side languages you have installed
    2) What database system you have installed, or
    3) What operating system you run.

    Hi. The 'mad professor' is quite right. It is mainly a server-side issue. I had this exact problem when designing www.flowersineden.co.uk. In the end, the sites I design come complete with a guest book in which the 'infant/baby' memorials have the option to light a candle. This - guest book - I have written in PHP but it only uses a 'flat database' stored on the server cos it does not warrent somethig like MySql.
    Try these sites;
    http://www.hotscripts.com
    http://www.phpcafe.net

    for PHP stuff.

    Good luck.
