Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Editing a XML file using a form

  1. #1

    Editing a XML file using a form

    I am not very literate it with coding, let alone describing this stuff. If you don't get it, visit http://theappshare.com and you will see what I am describing.

    This is what I want to do. I need the help of you guys to get it done.

    I currently have a full flash site reading information from XML files. What I want to do is create a form, specifically a form for users to fill out so it could include the following:

    Title / <title>: Application (I don't want users to be able to change this)

    URL / Download Link / <url> : Link to download

    App Icon / <tmb>: Link to image

    Screenshots / <img>: Screenshots of App

    Category & Version / <topic>: App category and version

    App Info & Description / <description>: App information and description

    There is variable <img> which shows the larger image after user clicks on content area. I want to know if I can somehow change this area so I can add more pictures, rather than 1 large one. I know this will require some FLASH editing, but I want to know if it is possible, and if so, how?

    The data format in the XML is in the code below. That is how the information is submitted. I want to know how I can make a form, whether PHP, ASP, whatever, to where the bold text above is on the form (what the user sees), and when submitted, it adds all the information to the end of a designated XML file in the format below.
    Code:
        <image>
            <title>Application</title>
            <url>www.TheAppShare.com</url>
            <img>elite_powerful_dynamic_xml_gallery_galleries/category1/img1.jpg</img>
            <tmb>elite_powerful_dynamic_xml_gallery_galleries/category1/tmb1.jpg</tmb>
            <topic><![CDATA[App Summary will be Here.]]></topic>
            <desc><![CDATA[MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO MoRE INFO ]]></desc>
