I will answer your question in three parts.

1. The scrollig effect on the page

This effect is reached by using JAVA. You have to include some lines
of code in you html source (and maybe a text file where the news are
being read from) to reach this kind of (or similar) effect.
I suggest you visit
( )
They offer many JAVA Applets that perform similar effects (scrolling
text up or down) and many of them are available for free or for small
fees. I´m sure you´ll find a good solution there.

If you shouldn´t find a good applet there please visit
( )
Also excellent text scrollers and also for free.

Third proposal for a nice text-scroller:
( )

If you have no experience in including java applets in html pages
please read the included documentation of the applets. Usually you
have to include some lines of text in your webpage and transfer some
applet code using a ftp program.

2. Including a dating-service on your homepage

The php scripts for the dating service require webspace including 
"PHP 4.1.0+, MySQL 3.23.15+" as mentioned in the documentation of the
script. I don´t know if your provider offers MySQL as a database
system. I you can use MySQL you should follow the detailed
instructions given in the readme.html file of the freeware version of
the dating script. It explains all the necessary steps to setup the

"ReadMe for AzDGDatingLite 

This script has been created as Lite version of AzDGDatingPlatinum.
It`s FREE and under GPL. You can`t remove our copyrights from bottom
of any script page. Please read gpl.txt and remove this software if
you are don`t agree with this file.

Script can be used in any site (Commercial or Non-commercial). 

But we don`t recommend use this script for very big projects (with
user number more than 65.000). You must buy our Platinum version for
easy upgrade and using for biggest projects.

In this script released many functions not available in other payed
scripts (User can upload 3 photo, very many profile fields and more).
But we don`t include more functions available in Platinum version
(Messaging system between users, Powerfull admin area with maillist,
FAQ system, BedRoom for users, Photo of the day and any custom feature
may be added by our client (as PayPal integration, and more)).


This script require only not very old PHP and MySQL versions. Php
version must be 4.1.0 or newer. MySQL must be 3.23.15 or newer. Script
platform (Windows, Linux, Mac) may be independent.

For detect your PHP and MySQL versions we recommend you ask this from
your hosting. We don`t recommend you using hostings with older
versions, because many bugs available in older versions of PHP and

You can write and install simple script for detect your PHP version
and some server parameters as internal path.





upload this script to server and view from browser as

Thats all

Your Admin page - http://your_installed_path/admin.php

another unnecessary files: upgrade200-201.php, readme.txt,
readme.html, gpl.txt, ChangeLog.txt)

Step 6. Now you can configure script for own needs by change
include/ file. Simple instructions for each detail are
available in same file.

Configuration may be easy changed in two files in include directory: and

In you can change following constants:

C_URL - Web path to AzDGDatingLite directory (without (slash) / at

C_PATH - Internal server path to AzDGDatingLite directory (without
(slash) / at end) - may be asked from your hosting or may be extracted
from test.php file. Also this path try detect on script install.

C_SNAME - Your site Name. It can be shown on TITLE tag and several
language phrases.

C_ADMINL and C_ADMINP - Admin login and password for access in admin

C_ADMINM - Admin email for feedback and some another needs. Please

This may be a bit complicated for less experienced users.
Let me suggest another rather simple (and compelety free !) solution.

database system there. I´m using baseportal - based solution for
several years.

introduced step-by-step. You wil be able to set up your own database

3. A content management system (CMS)

What you´re looking for is called a CMS.
A similar (maybe much better!) system to the one offer
is phpNuke. This CMS has taken the web in storm as it is freeware (!)
and offers features some expensive CMS do not have.
Again a MySQL database is required.
On the phpNuke homepage

I hope that these answers will help you to improve your webpage. If I
can be of further assistance please post a clarification request
before rating my answer.
