I have some very basic knowledge in HTML and a bit of experience in creating HTML sites with editor tools, mainly Microsoft Frontpage. Currently I’m trying to create an online treasure hunt for a friend. The main idea is this:
The friend is given the URL of the website where the hunt starts, say www.schnittessite.com/hunt.htm. On this site, she will find a riddle she has to solve. The correct answer will redirect her to the next site with the next question, and so on. Suppose the solution to the question on www.schnittessite.com/hunt.htm was “Cecil.” Then the next site, with the next question, would be www.schnittessite.com/cecil.htm, and if the solution to the riddle there was “Adams,” the next site should be adams.htm.
So far, so good, I already have a couple of stages ready. But I don’t know how to do an elegant way of redirecting her to the next site - the current way would be to simply have her write www.schnittessite.com/adams.htm into the address line of her browser manually, which is not too neato. I’d prefer to have some sort of form on the bottom of each page where she would simply enter “adams;” the form, when submitted, should then work as a hyperlink redirecting the browser to adams.htm. If she gets the answer wrong (say, “zotti” instead of “adams”), the browser should redirect her to www.schnittessite.com/zotti.htm, which wouldn’t exist so the website not found page displayed would show her that this was not correct. IOW; I need a way to create hyperlinks (in Frontpage or HTML) where you enter a word, click on “submit” and arrive at the file [word you entered].htm on the same web.
I guess this should be feasible, but I have no clue how.
