Hi… I’m not slick with coding HTML by any stretch, but I can fumble along - I am using Dreamweaver and Textmate and getting the job done.
Here’s what I need to accomplish:
A page sits on my secure server, https://www.stoidpage.com/formthing.htm is what is visible in the browser address window.
Inside a frame that is not visible to the eye, that takes up the whole page if necessary, that’s fine, is a form.
That form communicates back and forth with a completely different (also secure) site, https://www.nobodysbusinessbutmine.net/stuff/stuff/morestuffandstuff/
I don’t want the second URL to ever be visible in the browser address window at all. I want the browser address window to always be https://www.stoidpage.com/formthing.htm - actually, the formthing.htm part isnt’ necessary… just the toplevel URL. In an ideal world, actually, if https://www.nobodysbusinessbutmine.net/stuff/stuff/morestuffandstuff/ returns some kind of result that requires action, such as someone making a mistake on the form and needing to fix it, it would be great if I could make a page change in the URL to respond to that, but ti’s not necessary. That’s later, the core non-change is what I’m looking for.
I would also, if possible, prefer to disguise the communication between the second non-stoid server and the stoid server in the source code, but that’s not as important. I just want Joe Surfer to never see the second URL.
I do not want to get into anything complicated, I assume this can be done in the same way that Google, when you go to look at an image, will have the site where the image resides in a frame, while the URL remains something Googly.
In case this type of thing can be used for nefariousness… I’m not using it for nefariousness. Its actually to protect me.
Thanks for your help.
