fabian Hi there
New member, first question
I want to use my prime site for advertising my ebook, sales and thankyou page. I want to use a different site for the actual ebook file which will be password protected. (This is to stop Ferrits ferriting)(Leechers). I would be greatful if someone would explain what happens when a customer comes along and buy's a copy of my ebook. My merchant bank is Clickbank. Can I get clickbank to give the customer a link and a password for one of the books. or is it done some other way.
Any help would be much appreciated.

EBookCompiler site 1:
- put your sales page (containing the clickbank sales link)
- put your thank you page

site 2:
- put the download file

You create all the above and upload them to your site

In your clickbank a/c member's area, you enter the url of your thank you page

>> Can I get clickbank to give the customer a link and a password for one of the books. or is it done some other way.

ClickBank just sends the customer to the thankyou page on site1.  On this thank you page you put the link to the downloadable file, the password or whatever info the customer needs

fabian Thanks Sunil
Just one thing bothering me and that is the serial number you give the customer and he goes to the site and downloads his copy of your ebook. Does the corresponding serial number in the list that the program generated disappear at the same time, so it cant be used a second time by the same person or his mates.
As I'm well into my 56th year thing's take longer to sink in.

fabian How do you create a index page or index.htm because the compiler wont work without it.

Posted on: 8:19 pm on April 2, 2002
tlmorris Simply name your first page (the one you want to be displayed when the book is opened) as index.htm (or index.html) when you save it (of course you have to save it as an htm or html file)

fabian Well TL
I named my first page index.htm. Now Ive got a file named index. but every time I try to run the compiler it comes back empty file.
                                  What am I doing wrong.

tlmorris This is going to be fun to troubleshoot without seeing what you are working with. First, is the index.htm in the same folder as the rest of the pages? If not, it needs to be there. Second, try opening index as a webpage to make sure everything is alright with the file - that it was actually converted to htm not just given the htm extention. Make sure that there isn't another file named index (but with a different extention in the folder). Also, if you used the extension htm then make sure that all the files you are compiling use htm (not html - if the other files are html, then change the index to html).

If none of that works, I'd like to take a look at your index page and list of files in your source folder (along with a few of them for a test). I'd also be interested in what program you are creating the files in (is it a word processing program and then you are converting to html or are you writing them in a html editor)

If you are using Activ E-Book (which I'm assuming you are) Sunil should also have some tips for you. There's also an extensive help/tip manuel. If you are using a different compiler - let me know which one it is.

Let me know if you get it to working.

fabian Hello Tam
Thought I'd let you know, I got it sorted.
I printed out "creating your source files using MS Word 2000. In the end it was a breeze.

              Thanks again for your help.

tlmorris Glad to hear it worked out.
