Cheryl Someone please help me to clarify what this interprets to?  Am I suppose to include the { and the } and does the p get put in as it appears or am I suppose to substitute other information there such as:

the actual  "P"assword

or the

the  "P"age number


Sorry so green.  They said anybody could do this...I'm beginning to wonder...

Thanks in advance if you can help

dreuby Hi Cheryl,
If these are Activ variables, you do need to include the {,  and the pre-processor will convert them to whatever value that variable holds.

You need to check that the pre-processor is enabled for that file, in the Edit menu (I think!). The Help file has details under the Variables and Scripts tab, then choose the PreProcessor link, and how to use on the left hand menu bar.

Don't feel you can't do it - some of this stuff is quite advanced, so looks very confusing. I'm still amazed when I manage to insert a compiledate variable without my ebook exploding!

Cheryl Hi Dianne,

Thank you for your reply.  I will try a few things and see if I can get this.  I am just hoping that the first is the worst and that all will be easier after the first time around.  The particular phrase I am trying to figure out goes like this:


I have, so far, translated that as:
http://www.lastingmakeup/the name of that page{p}.htm

So, the "p" stays, yes?  And the htm is ok instead of html, right?  I'm not actually suppose to put salespage after my lastingmakeup, right?  Well, I'll try all of the above and see if I can get something to gel.

I thought I would be done with this by now.  I mean, how hard can it BE?  I don't have any fancy schmancy stuff in my ebook...the ebook itself was gravy.  This part is not making me happy at all, though.

Thanks again for coming to help,

JohnDodson Cheryl,
Yes, the P stays.

Look at it this way:
Your sites name is Cool.com

Your sales page names are purchase1.htm, purchase2.htm, purchase3.htm, and so on.

That's the link right there.  Put the brackets, put the p in the brackets, and put the .htm

If your pages end with .html, then put .html  It makes a difference.  If your page is .htm and you put:
http://www.cool.com/purchase{p}.html  it won't work.  So make sure that you put the right extension (which is what .htm and .html are called).

That's it.

Alaska Cheryl -

The tag you're building would be something like:

< a href="http://www.yoursite.com/salespage[={p}].html>get a password< /a>.

 Then, you would turn the Preprocessor on for that page before compiling.

Say you generated 1000 passwords.  If your PC needed the password #345,  the resulting href would call a file named:


... which is ok if you have 1000 unique html pages.  but, you probably don't.  That's why people are using ASP and PHP applications to deliver the password automatically.  You can check Sunil'shttp://www.ebookcode.comfor "Sell 1,000 passwords using ClickBank + ASP" and "Sell 1,000 passwords using ClickBank + PHP"...

 If this is too much to deal with, you could probably find a techie or other propellerhead to help smooth the way - perhaps a relative or friend familiar with web applications.

 I'm building the same type or response system myself, and will be happy to share it when it's finished.

Hope this helps -

Cheryl Thank you for your help, everybody...I have been busy rewriting my ebook as I found some little problems with it, or places I could enhance it.

No, I don't think I will have 1000 passwords...LOL...

Not today.  

But I do appreciate the help with the above and I may need a techie to come to my rescue in the end.  We'll see.

Thanks so much,
Oh!  I made my own bookcover in Corel Draw...saved it as a bitmap but could not save it into a jpeg or bmp file, so saved it to a high resolution, printed it and scanned it.  It looks sooooo cute....wish the rest was as easy as this for me.

Take care All...
