    need help on image for my business.

    gambino90

      hi. I'm Mike Gambino, admin/founder of my own website called http://gambinoarmy.co.cc/. I've been using macromedia for this stuff but apparently, y'all have better stuff than macromedia and I started using the schools. I have a trial on my computer for 30 days and I have been using it and I need to know how to do something. I see that lots of business owners have images that are linked on their site and it is making me mad that everytime I want to make an image, fireworks will not let me do anything on it.

       

      there is something I want to do and it is to make an image that shows their signature, if they are online or not, when level their at, how long they have been playing, and so forth. I want to know if someone can help me give me a tutorial on how to make an image with HTML embeded into the image source so I can make it so that it is live and will work like most businesses do.

       

      since I hardly go on since I'm trying to edit my site still, I would like someone to email me at admin@gambinoarmy.co.cc so I can get it right on my computer and I will not have to hunt down this forum post. I'm mostly busy and I'm trying to keep my site running and up to date and it is a busy week for me since I'm trying to do a grand opening of my site since someone hacked my site and edited a lot of things and now I secured it and everything and recovered my lost data.

       

      please help me.

          You cannot embed HTML into an image. An image is simply static data and cannot contain decision-making code.

           

          The kind of functionality you wish to have requires a database to maintain the presence information of people using your site and then the active code to produce HTML that references the appropriate (static) image. You cannot accomplish this with Fireworks, either an old Macromedia version or a newer Adobe version.

           

          You need to hire a programmer.

            I wish I had the money too. I can't invest anymore on my site till lots of people come on my site and donate.

             

            is there even a way to take HTML scripts of PHP scripts, put it in a document and try using a <img src=" " /> code to try making it into an image?

              I can't speak to your business model.

               

              is there even a way to take HTML scripts of PHP scripts, put it in a document and try using a <img src=" " /> code to try making it into an image?

               

              The wording of that question doesn't even make sense. HTML is not scripting, it isn't programming. It is markup for text display. The image tag is also not programming; it is the markup for HTML that displays an image that has been created and stored.

               

              For your desired functionality, something could probably be done with PHP and a database, if the person doing the work knew what he or she was doing. In any case, it isn't a Fireworks question. Fireworks creates graphics and it can output some HTML. It is not a programming environment.

               

              If you want to put the your desired functionality into your site yourself, you first need to learn what HTML is and is not, what it can and can't do. Then, you need to move on to learning a programming language (for example PHP, ColdFusion, Perl, C#/.NET), as well as SQL (the language) and some database expertise. You also will need to learn about securing your database-driven site.

               

              Good luck!
