Your web server can pose as a web browser, visit a web site of your choice,
extrapolate content, and then feed it back to a user on your site.
This is a neat way to mimic content from another site.
Warning: this is often illegal. You should ask permission of the original
site owner before proceeding.

Installation Overview:

1. Setting some options at the beginning of the script file (*.pl)
2. Using FTP to upload the file
3. Setting permissions on the file
4. Running the script
5. View Browser Source
6. Modify the script some more
7. Upload it again.
8. Repeat steps 4 through 7 until satisfied.
9. Create a new directory to 'house' shadow site if you wish,
and place the index.shtml in this directory. Customize the content
by putting your own header and footer HTML around the include tag.
Check the index.shtml file for examples.
Here's How!

1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the script
Change the path to perl so that it's configured for your server.
It's usually:

The script has directions included at the top of it explaining how to make
these modifications. The variable names should also be self-explanatory.

2. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of) and
upload the .pl file to your server's cgi-bin.

3. Set permissions (CHMOD) on the *.pl file so it is executable. (755).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, and execute.

4. Open the script in a browser, something like:

5. View the source of the generated HTML code. If you have errors, try using the
Perl Script Checker to track down the cause of these errors.

6. Use the source of this code: copy and paste selections you wish to remove into
the 'REPLACEMENTS' database at the top of the script.

7. Upload the script again, and check to see if it displays how you like it.

8. Repeat steps 4 through 7, making modifications to the REPLACEMENTS database
until you're satisfied.

9. Optionally create a new folder on your server:
Place the index.shtml file in this folder, and modify the
$new_url_on_your_site variable in siteshadow to reflect this change.

That's it! You're set! Let me know if you have problems.

What People Say

Site Skinner $0
Add to Cart It is very cool having lots of different 'looks' for people to choose from on my site. I am one of those people who like to keep changing my site, and now when I do that, it doesn't mean I have to lose my old 'look.' People can switch back and forth between skins easily! Thanks for a great script.Scott
