I am currently designing my very first website using Microsoft FrontPage. I am finding the WYSIWYG editor pretty simple to use but there is feature I am hoping to add to the site and I don’t have a clue how to do it!
What I would like is a feature that will work out a quote (for a car delivery business) based on mileage. To do this user would have to type in a ‘From Postcode’ and a ‘To Postcode’. The site will then work out the distance (in miles) between the two postcodes and report back a quote to the user based on a simple formula that would convert the miles into pounds. An example of the kind of thing I am talking about can be found here: http://www.autoquake.com/used-car-d...
This site http://www.postcode.org.uk/free-pos... displays a bit of code to add to your own site that will work out the distance and display it in a small table, but, as I want my site as professional looking as possible I would rather not show any graphics from other sites.
Could I potentially get the mileage from a site such as the one above without displaying their graphics??
I am a complete beginner to web design and I imagine what I am asking for could be quite complicated, but, if anyone can give me any ideas on how I can achieve this it would be much appreciated.
