Automation Script

Post icon  Posted 22 June 2009 - 08:46 AM

Hello all,

I'm quite new here, so humble apologies if I go wrong in my question syntax.

I'm trying to put together a flash games website, and, at the moment I've got the bones of it done, so I'm throwing on a few games, but it's a tedious and slow process, because I'm doing it very much manually as the entire website is more or less HTML and CSS. So I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to writing a script to do this for me, whereby I would enter the game URL and the script would do the rest; create the new page from a template and perhaps put a link to it on the index page under its relative category <div>.

Any help with regard to what language to use would be great, or sample scripts and tips or pointers and whatnot would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

well, i would say create a database (MySQL, Access, MS SQL) and have a table just for the games you are wanting to reference. Then create a interface to the table so that way you can interate through the table data and as each row is iterated you create your link reference to the game with what ever template you want to use. How ever deep you want to customize will need to be in the table so that way you can put that field as a attribute to the control for reference.
