Question I have... Can I sign up on any iPage web hosting site without having any web building skills? Looking forward for any answer. My other question... Hi,.

First of all I am new to the board I hope I get the answer I am looking..

I am trying to display another html on my page I know I can use Iframes,layers or ssi but I need to display only a specific part of the remote html ,not the whole page, If I am not wrong I think I saw a java script that can do that a quite time ago, but I can not find it now, I really need to find something like this ASAP, any ideas?.

Thank you very much....

Yep, but you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the iPage guys because they can assist you better...

Using an IFRAME alone will not just 'grab the middle' content from a web page..

You didnt answer when I asked why you cant simply ASK the iPage website for their content. After all-its really not yours, and what your doing is misrepresenting someone elses content as your own...

Dr. Web.

Thanks for your being helpful about telling what is mine, what is not !!.

I needed a help but you are giving me advice!!..

I just gave `cnn` as an example, If you read it carefully.

You ll see it. Ok if you are a lawyer or wanna be lawyer..

Ill tell you what is mine and what is NOT !.

I opened an account on (you can do it too it's free) (.


) but they have very limited templates and you cannot customize it as you like (not yet, they are working on this option), so all I am trying to do is to put the middle content on my own web page.


Well ihope this time (after all this explanation)i can get an answer..

If anyone asks for help on, lets say... taking CNN's info.... of course I'll tell them it's wrong.... it is..

Now-if YOU have content on some template, YOU can just enter/ copy/ paste/ screenshot the info and insert it into your other page..

I don't understand your dilemma. YOU created a webpage, and now YOU want the content YOU created? Go get it. Whats the issue? Pulling the source code you created would be a lot faster than trying to find a lazy way to just grab the code out of a rendered page...

You have to use LWP usign perl fot this to be possible:.

This is what I did, and it works perfect:.

My configuration is:.

Solaris 8 with perl version 5.005_03 built for sun4-solaris.

I needed to install LWP, but needed to match these.

Pre-requisites also..

Will need C compiler CC from sun to compile the code in the.

Required libraries..

1. Download the cc from SUN site. It is 60 day free trial..

Should buy if need to continue..

The software is available at:.


Software is:.

Sun ONE Studio 7, Compiler Collection.

2. Downloaded these modules from CPAN web site.


Modules are:.






3. Installed them in the same sequence as listed above..

4. Downloaded LWP from:.

That's it. You are ready to use LWP and have fun..

This is a test script which shows all of.

Use LWP;.

Print "This is libwww-perl-$LWP::VERSION ";.

Use LWP::Simple;.

$url = "";.

$context = get($url);.
