How to Create a Dynamic Web Page
(Page 1 of 4 )


At heart, the Internet primarily still does exactly what it was first intended to do –- transfer information. The way it does it today however, is vastly different from how it did it about ten years ago. People don’t want to just read lines of text on the Internet; they want to interact with web pages and for it to be an ‘experience’.

Creating a web page that can change according to visitors selections or interactions is easily achieved via server-based web programming languages such as ASP.NET or PHP, but what if you don’t have the time or the intention to study and learn one of these complex languages? What if your web-space host or your company’s intranet does not facilitate these server-based languages?

This tutorial, aimed at beginners to web programming or those of you who like to keep things fairly simple, will show you just how fast and easy it is to produce web pages with dynamic content that are purely client based. By client based, I mean that the code behind the page stays the same and any changes are run from within the visitor’s browser. The only down side to VBScript is that older browsers may have trouble executing it. You can use any HTML editor to complete this tutorial, even trusty-old Notepad (which is what I generally use, and have based this tutorial on).
