    i have searched around a little bit in the forums but could not find the proper hack for my problem.

    i would like to have a register/signup possibility for expample integrated in the header of my site where users could enter their desired blog-domain name (User.domain.tld) and then will be transfered to the signup-page.

    i have seen this at some blog hosting sites ...


    but could not find the hack here.

    thx for the help

    They could well have written it themselves - its hardly hard to do.

    Pretty much. Most of us are no longer releasing our code to the public anymore due to the troublemakers here in the forums. It's no longer worth our time.

    hi steve, hi mike.
    thx for the participation.

    what do you mean by troublemakers? the ones who do not contribute but only take the posted codes or where there other isues?? i m new here, just signed up today. will take a look at further posts.

    i have searched a little bit and took a closer look at the html of the sites i have mentioned.

    here is how i solved the problem (perhaps you will need to fix the "ids" to make them fit to your style.css, but for me it worked quite well )

    <form method="get" id="searchform" action="">
    <input name="new" value="Your Blog Here ?" onfocus="if(this.value=='Your Blog Here ?')this.value='';" onchange="javascript:this.value=this.value.toLowerCase();" title="Enter Username to signup" size="9" type="text" name="s" id="s" /><br/>
    <input type="submit" value="Signup &raquo" title="Click to signup" onclick="this.value='Please Wait......'" type="submit" id="searchsubmit" value="Signup &raquo" />

    if you know other ways in doing this,
    please post them.

    (hope i could express myself good enough coz my first lenguage is german)

    Hmm the above code would be interesting on the welcome page, however it gets confusing if multiple blogs are allowed for each member. In which case, the entered membername may be available but the blog name may not because its already been registered by another user.
