Hey. Id like to have a form. The user will type a url in the form. Id like for the submit button to send them to [a href=\"http://domain.com/scgi-bin/proxy.cgi/100100A/http/theirurl.com\" target=\"_blank\"]http://domain.com/scgi-bin/proxy.cgi/10010...tp/theirurl.com[/a]. (if the form condenses the URL, make sure to see the tooltip to see the full thing) Notice the URl replaces the 'http://' with 'http/'. Id also like it so that if they type the http:// in the url form, it removes that and uses just the domain for the refering url. Can anyone show me how this can be done? Thanks.

Austin

well, you have to split the input to separate the http:// from the url, use preg_split()
then you simply plug the variable into the link, and your done...
