Within this area you will find pre-installed CGI scripts for your site.
If you have some programming knowledge you might want to download some

general script installation instructions and server paths.
Random HTML Generator:
The Random HTML Generator randomly generates text on your web page. It
picks a HTML string out of a list and inserts it in an SSI (Server Side
Includes) enabled web page. Your page needs to have a .shtml extension
for this feature to work. To setup the Random HTML Generator simply click
on it and input the text that you wish to have generated randomly.
The Guest Book is a simple guest book generator. To setup this feature
click on it and then copy and paste the code generated into your page.
This feature allows you to setup a counter, a clock, or a date box for
a page on your website. You need to generate the code for each script
that you want to use. To setup this feature select the radio button for
the specific script that you want to generate, select options and click
on Make HTML, then simply copy and paste the code provided into
your web page.
This utility will create a real time java clock for your site. Very similar
to the clock available inside the counter option. To setup this feature

can follow the simple step-by-step instructions in the CGI Email user
guide. To enable this feature, simply click on it, you will then find
instructions for setting it up.
FormMail Clone is a clone of Matt Wright's FormMail.cgi under a less restrictive
license. It should behave almost exactly as FormMail.cgi, however, with
it you are not able to customize the script at all and the output of your
form results arrive in alphabetical order. To enable the FormMail Clone
just click on it.
This is a simple search engine that will index the pages within your domain.
To setup the Entropy Search click on Setup Search Engine and you

code into your pages and have uploaded them to your account, revisit this
area and click on Rebuild Search Index to complete the installation.
