    Widget Requests for DWCS3

    Rufus65
      These are a list of widgets that i would like to have for my website, and please correct me or show me better if the widgets i list are crap or useful, or you think something better will do.

      1] Calender Widget - I would like this widget to display a full one month while highlighting or displaying somehow the current date. a realativly simple widget.

      2] Weather Widget - I would like this widget to display the most current weather news from the viewers location. [i.e; they type in their area code and the widget gives them information in their current location, or an auto-locator widget where if you go to the page, it automattically syncs with your current location via IP address or somehow else and gives the information in farenheit or celcius, along with the current conditions like: sunny, cloudy, stormy, rainy, etc]

      3] Search box widget - This widget is basically what it says. It will search through my entire site on whatever page.

      4] scrolling [marquee] "headlines" banner - This widget will allow the viewer to see important information in a strip of scrolling text above the main article and below the header, with the text being editble to me only.

      5] this isnt really a widget but it is one "big" thing i need to accomplish if i want viewers to join my site. I would like to have an entire user account database type function. I dont know how to say it in any other way. i'll describe it and you'll know what im talking about. you know how you can signup and get usernames and passwords for viewers, making accounts and stuff like that, personalizing a profile, i would like to incorperate that. only problem is i have no clue where or how to start that. Much help will be needed there.

      6] this last request isnt a widget either but, i would like it if i was able to create my own support forums like this one, where you create threads and post on topics. I have tried Forum hosting services and they just get in theway of what i truely want out of a support forum like this. Much help will be needed hereas well.

      Well that should deffinatly keep me busy for a few months. I am really interested in getting this all to work and i understand that this is a proccess, but i am willing to work through it if anyone else is willing to help. Thank you for your time....
