How It Works:

Uplolad the script to your cgi-bin, and then incorporate it into a
server side include page. Link to this page so that visitors can
view prayer requests, post new requests, or subscribe to an RSS

Installation Overview:
1. Set some options at the beginning of the scripts
2. Use FTP to upload the files
4. Set exectute permissions on the Perl script, and write permissions on the
text files
4. Test the script

Here's How!

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

2. Change the variables,

For example,


$channel_title = "Intelliscript's Prayer Perl Script";
$channel_description = "Subscribe to this RSS Channel to Keep Up-to-Date on Prayer Requests";
$channel_language = "EN";
$channel_copyright = "(c)2005 All Rights Reserved.";
$managing_editor_email = '';
$webmaster_email = '';
$channel_category = 'Religion';
$prayer_feed_image = "";
$image_title = "PrayerWall - A Perl Script";
$image_link = "";
$image_description = "Download this Perl script and install it on your site today!";


$emailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail'; # your mailer program...
$admin_email = '';
$server_file = "prayer_requests.txt";
$counter_file = "prayer_requests_counter.txt";
$records_to_display = 10;
$datapath = "";
$html_page = "/test_area/prayerwall/index.shtml"; # for using Server Side Includes
$script_url = "/test_area/prayerwall/prayer_wall.cgi"; # for saving changes in admin panel.
$default_search = "";
$hide_replies = 0; # default
$url = $ENV{'SERVER_NAME'};


$login = 'admin';
$password = 'password';
$highlight_color = '#ececec';
$search_each_word = 1;
$search_invitation = "Login to the admin below using 'admin' and 'password'.<br>Search the prayer wall for keywords:";
my @months = ("Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec");
my @days = ("Sun","Mon","Tue","Wed","Thu","Fri","Sat");

3. Open the prayer_wall.shtml file and change the title and other aspects of
the page to reflect your site's design.

4. Open the header.txt and footer.txt file and paste in header and footer
content from your main site so that the pages look like they belong to the
style used in other parts of your site.

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

6. Set permissions (CHMOD):
.pl files: 755
.txt files: 777, or 766 if 777 is not allowed.


7. From a browser, open the .pl file or the .shtml file.

As always, let me know of problems, questions, or requests for features.

What People Say

Browser Page Editor $0
Add to Cart I looked into every solution all summer and for basic CMS this is just perfect. I only found it by using the right search term, 'browser based CMS' I think. Previously everything that pulled up were the hair pulling sql/php hair pulling things. Those solutions are like using a bazooka to swat a fly. Joomla's powerful but a nightmare when clients already have highly specific designs they don't want changed.
