Free Daily Content for Your Site
We're often asked by web site owners if they can put our stories on their site, but we've had to refuse such requests -- until now! We're very pleased to offer True-a-Day (TAD).
(Advanced Webmasters:True-a-Day is also available in a SSI-PHP version)
By adding a single line of code on any page on your site, you can automatically show your visitors a new story every day. What a great way to get return visitors! With the default settings (plus centering), it looks like this:
Weekly Weird News
Here's all you have to do to get it on your site: add the following line to any page on your web site:
Make sure you have it all, and it's very important to copy it verbatim -- it's best to use cut and paste. (And thisistrue.net is correct, do not change it to thisistrue.com or it won't work!) It's best to have it all on one line, but you can break it into two if you wish. That is the simplest way to do it, but there are some optional parameters you can add if you want or need to -- see below. The above story was added simply by using that line -- which means when you come back later the story will be different. It changes every day.
Advanced Webmasters:True-a-Day is also available in a SSI-PHP version
For secure sites, which require that the call be done securely, replace the server call with https://secure.thisistrue.com/cgi-bin/tad.pl

How to add the parameters to the script call:
Include one or more, without spaces, after the tad.pl part. The first parameter must start with "?". Any additional parameters are separated with "&". Example:
The above option coding was used to create the second example above. Again, it should ideally be all on one line, even though it probably wraps for you here, in your browser.
