    WTF? hourly/daily updates...?

    Anybody a good coder?

    I'm looking for a daily/hourly update strategy... How do you do this?

    I'm building my own link-list type thing for my own use and I've got it setup for "random" in some categories, others are static.

    What I'd like to do is arrange an hourly/daily or some other periodic update but I'm not sure how to approach this.

    My thoughts:
    1) A cron-type job creates the page automatically
    2) The list page checks the creation date when it loads and if the time-frame is past, it generates a new page
    3) I rip apart an existing list and see what it does

    I'm not looking for actual code, just some strategy ideas. I'm using PHP but can adapt from some other language with some work.

    Thanks in advance...

    Funny, i have also been looking for a good linklist script for the past 4 or 5 days now. I would say that yes, a cron job would be the best way to do the updates, but other than that I can't be of much help as I am a useless programmer!


    cheers,

    Luke

    Thanks Luke.

    I'm following the Those who can't find, make approach.

    I've looked at a few, but right now I can't afford to purchase and the freebies would require so many mods, I might as well start from scratch.

    Let me know if you find anything.

    Actually i have a 'fake tgp' script already written that does this

    http://www.nexttgp.com is an example of the output.

    The script runs by cron every 24 hours and creates a whole new page based on a template plus about 1k hosted gallery urls, descriptions, links and pic counts

    LMK if thats what you are after and ill shoot you over a copy

    Regards,

    Lee

    I have found a free directory script that looks pretty good for my needs:
    http://www.directory-search.org/directory_script.php

    Its probably not what you are looking for, but it might be good for a future project!


    cheers,

    Luke
