Hiccup with blog

Ahem. I wondered why no curious person posted a comment at my experimental blog. I just found out, it doesn't work. The file 'test.html' only has this one line in it:

<!--#include virtual="nameofblogscript.pl?page=1" -->

But that is only ever going to display the front page of the blog. So, how can I change that so that it defaults to parameters '?page=1' but if a URL with parameters is supplied, like this:


then the '?viewDetailed=00000' will replace the '?page=1'?

If you know the answer to this question, would you mind letting me know? A suitable place to reply would be the 4.00beta feedback thread:

Ah, that simplifies things. For some reason I thought that I had to have the '?page=1' to get the main page to display, but it defaults to that anyway. That means all that is required is to substitute the parameter from the URL ...which I don't know how to do

Problem solved, see later posts.

Bogged down blogs
Well the comment edit box is appearing. Let us see if/how it posts . . .There seems to be a max of 200 words - I wrote 294 without thinking

Words of Characters
I must admit I find most blogs over engineered, keeping me from wanting to post . . . Seems I can not edit my previous post, which should be characters not words . . . Works though :)

testing size of comment
Yeah, that's not much is it...
I'll see if that can be bumped up.

Big and small
Thanks Barry. Got my Asus Eeepc yesterday. I am thinking seriously of using Dingo rather than PupEEE for it - the Xandros operating system is very good too. I seem to remember you have been running Dingo on the Classmate (more or less the same machine under the bonnet) so will check the forum threads. You actually replaced Xandros from what I remember . . . This blog software seems excellent. Be interesting how it copes further down the line . . .
