How does a guestbook script work,how do other pages that a logged-on
user can post an addition to work,and how can I add a more ROBUST
script that will allow a user with a password to add a comment to my
guestbook script or as complex as knowing PERL.Good answers will
involve where to aquire or purchase data
handling services(hosting) that will best handle my task of forming a
paid directory listing service where the user fills out a form of the
listing information and the form info is automatically inserted into
my web-site,also generating a page for my user as a homepage.Many
things are required points to remember: the script must proof-read all
incoming data for illegal or pornographic content,all listings must
contain "required"fields,all postal and zip codes must be verified,
all listings must be alphabetically sorted and inserted into existing
listings in the proper order.All "banned" users must be unable to
access site.All users must pay by credit card.There is some leeway in
answering this question- any help that you can give is welcome- as
page.Anything that will cheaply solve one or more of the main points
is a good enough answer.
I will continue to re-post this Question,indicating which parts still
remain unanswered,untill the whole mess is solved.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND INTEREST.

* automation of each step in directory formation is the
main concern,I want to avoid data-entry and proof-reading.Also-I don't
want to purchase software - I want to use a on-line solution or
* low-cost is essential.
* a script or data-handling method for use on a server
is preferred to a client-side solution.
* I have already made the templates into which the data
will be inserted,but can add a reference to a script or make a few
* I will most likely handle the part about user log-on
and credit card payment myself unless this conflicts with use of a
hosting solution you can suggest.
* remember that all data must get listed in alphabetical
order,and that new listings must not simply be appended,they must be
interpolated into the existing listings-also ,the list is a three part
list with a criteria for each classification mode-business
name,type(category),and physical location.So within type listing would
be the various categories(products or services) and then each one in a
category listed by business name alphabetically.The same for physical
