Would I need PHP for this?

Recommended Posts

How can I take information and have it displayed on another page even when my computer is turned off? It would need to update every 5-10 minutes or so and display on MY page.

are you hosting your webpage on your own computer or some other server? if it is some other server, then just setup a cron job.  if it's you're own computer.. well if you turn it off, then it's off.

I am using InvisionFree Forums for the place where I want the text to be displayed.

Ill try to explain fully.

1. Obtain small amount of information (the numbers change about every 10-15 minutes)
2. Display in a small box on my forums
3. Have it run constantly even with my computer turned off

If I need to run something through a server could I use Freewebs?

Can I ask what makes you think having your computer on would make a difference?

Sorry.. Istill dont understand your question. What does your computer have to do with displaying something on your page? Is your page hosted on a public server ie; The internet?

The information I want displayed is hosted by someone else. I just want small changing amount of numbers (3 at the most) to be displayed on my webpage.

My webpage is just an InvisionFree. I could use a Freewebs if needed. I don't really want to pay.

Is this correct:

1. You have a message board hosted with InvisionFree.com?

2. You want to update something on your message board from your home computer?

3. You want this done automatically at certain time periods?

The info I want updated is on another webpage NOT hosted by me but is another InvisionFree Board.
