User defined parameters

 

It is possible to create your own "I am lost" page by using parameters in the page URL.

Parameter names are:

msg message displayed:
 
- msg="you are completly lost..."
 
img background image url or predefined image identifier:
 
- img=http://i-am-lost.net/img1.gif
- img=[1]    (image list)
 
snd background sound url or predefined sound identifier:
 
- snd=http://i-am-lost.net/sound1.mp3
- snd=[2]    (sound list)
 
To play the sound and loop infinitely, add an asterisk ("*") at the end of this parameter value.

 

These parameters can be set either with a GET or a POST method:

 

GET method

This is the easiest way to do it:

<a href="http://i-am-lost.net/?msg="new message..."&snd="[1]*">go there...</a>

 

POST method

The URL will be tidier but the code is more complex:

<form id="f" method="post" action="http://i-am-lost.net/index.php">
    <input type="hidden" name="msg" value="new message...">
    <input type="hidden" name="img" value="http://i-am-lost.net/img1.gif">
    <input type="hidden" name="snd" value="[1]*">
</form>

<a href="http://i-am-lost.net" onClick="f.submit();return false;">go there...</a>
