  1. That makes sense... so is there a way to process the string that is stored in the text file as soon as the page is loaded the first time? I am trying random things, but no success yet...
  2. I have a simple web page with 2 buttons that change an icon to red or green based on which button is pressed. When the button is pressed, the variable is stored in a text file, and then recalled to display the proper color icon. (When "Power On" is pressed, the icon turns red, and when "Power Off" is pressed, it turns green.) The problem I have is this: When the page is first loaded, the graphic is blank, until a button is pressed, and then the icon displays properly. The text file with the stored variable is always available on the server, but I cant figure out why the page isnt working properly. I know my webpage is probably full of other problems, but I am a real noob, trying to create my home automation webpage... If you are wondering why I am storing the variable in a text file, it was my way of saving this variable, so that another user could open the same webpage at another time, on another computer, and be able to see the correct status icon. if there is a better way (without Java), please let me know!
