I have problem that i'm just not 100% to go about it or if it will even work they way in which i wish it to.
My current site (article content based) has the option of the user being able to select the article he/she likes and have it e-mailed to them in html form. This is all fine and dandy for 1article at a time, but now i'm getting request for a "Shopping cart style" system in where the user can select multiple articles and have them e-mailed all at once. This is where I am a little baffled.
So here is my quetsion, using nothing more than a little java, xsl, .xml (site does not use any access,sql ect) can I somehow acomplish this. Lets keep in mind currently the site is handled like so.
- All articles for current month are stored in a master.xml file, each articile id inside that file are seperate .xml files.
- User starts by seeing a synopsys of the articles, title, headline, image if there is one, and brief you need to read more if this interests you hook paragraph. (all styled by .xsl from reading the master.xm)
- User then has the option of reading the full article or simply just e-mailing the article to themselves. (Call e-mail script or view article script/xsl depending on choice).
Any guidence would be much apreciated.
Thank you for your ideas in advance,
