Watch out, this book is reading you!
This is my request: for P, I would like to have a mechanism that
- keeps track of exactly which pages my reader has already read and which (s)he hasn't seen yet, and
- uses this 'reading history' to either deny or permit this particular reader access to other parts of the book.
- Of course, this 'intelligent' selector should work in every platform, if possible.
See what I mean? I want P to be 'a book with a memory' - the reader reads the book, the book reads the reader (that's about as interactive as one can get!).
The reason for this wish probably is quite obvious to you smart guys (and gals) out there: certain chapters in P are rather difficult to grasp without some prior knowledge that is to be found in other chapters. In other words: in my ideal P, only by reading chapter A, one can earn the right to delve into chapter B - not unlike to what happens in some computer games such as MYST.
you need server side programming with sessions enabled and database of some kind involved.This type of persistenace can not be achieved using any other means( cookies on client side can be disabled)
Sounds rather complicated for a non-programmer like me, Khalid... Thanks, anyway. Any advice as to how I could get this done? (Hire a real programmer? That's out of the question: I'm just a soloist, with no sponsor or anything to back me up.)(...yet.)(Interested parties are invited to get in touch!)
sorry buddy, I am afraid you will need some prgrammer for this to be done...
Jan van Erp if you want a cheap coder try this place I requested some work here the prices varied from $800 down to $35 for the same job ended up being done by some russian fer the $35 and the work was great. always worth atry you dont have to take any offers.
Thanks, Slim! Good suggestion.
with every page you can set a hidden value..and it gets submitted everytime the page data is submitted without the reader/user ever knowing
hope this helps...
