Hi Y'all... :grin:


I've been aproached by a charity to build them an ecard to spam their customers with festive cheers...
Simple enough: illustrate, animate, add some interaction, slap on a website... no biggy!!!

However...

I would like the webpage personalised; so the recipients sees their own name and message on the page (and maybe even inside the Flash movie if I can work that bit out?!?)

The emailed link sent to each company/donator needs a unique url, with their data embedded in it somehow; so when they follow it, their specific content appears.

Looking at the Help files, terms like "URL and form parameters" and "session variables" pop up. Unfortunately, I just do graphics, so I don't know what they are, how use them, if they're the best method, and how I'd get them from DW in to an email sent by the charity!?!

Any clues what I do to achieve this and how to automate the process?

As usual, this is a rush job; otherwise I'd spend ages working this out myself, rather than cribbing the answer...

Winner gets a "warm glowing feeling" and maybe an ecard (optional) ;-)


Cheers...
