One simple way to allow visitors to easily jump from one section
or your web site to another is by using a "redirect"
script. A small form and simple CGI
can be designed to facilitate such a task. The redirect form
and CGI source are presented in two sections below.
To install the redirect CGI on your Virtual Private Servers you will
need to do the following:
Install the Redirect Form
You will need to download the Redirect
Form HTML source and store it somewhere in your
~/www/htdocs directory structure. This form can
be customized for your Virtual Private Servers by simply changing
the URLs and Titles to the URLs and Titles that correspond
to specific documents on your web site. But be sure that
the variable name for each input field is not altered.
The form can be modified
to automatically redirect when a user has selected an
in form. Find this line:
Modify the line so it looks
<select name="url" onChange="submit(); return true">
Install the Redirect CGI
Connect to your Virtual Private Servers via Telnet
or SSH and run this command:
% vinstall redirect
This will install the redirect.plfile
into your ~/www//cgi-bin/library/redirect directory.
Customize the Appearance
of the Redirect CGI
It is common to substitute an image for the submit button.
An example of such a subsitution is included in the examples
Once you have completed the installation successfully, you
will have a working redirect form like the one shown below
(go ahead and test it).
