I think you'd need to use rewrite rules in the server.

You'd pick off the referrer and serve up a different template set based on that.

You might be able to use a global to check the environment string, and replace your tags based on what the referrer value was.

I'm not sure which way would work better... this is something Alex is pretty well versed on :)

You can use the PageBuilder plugin for this. The plugin allows you to create easily as many pages for every category as you want. You can build them statically, and/or load them dynamically.

Contact me if you need further information.

so if i had a sub category called health, with all of the sub cat of health displayed and category advert, i could create entrance pages static/dynamic that are identical to the category page ( and will be updated as such with build). basically, i just want to change tilte meta tags and some of the text so that each page scores well in search engine

Yogi;

Any update available soon on Pagebuilder?

Also, there's more than a few people that would pay for an update. I asked last week what you would charge to do an update and did not yet get an answer. Do you have an estimate?

Thanks!

Hi

you need to set up a 'category' type page.

For 'Build Directory', put something like:
<%Full_Name%>

For 'Build Filename', use something like:
gateway.html

You can then customize the template of the page to suit your needs. To obtain a list of links in the category, put

<%loop links_loop%>
<%include link.html%>
<%endloop%>

If you want to know what tags are available on a template, use

<%GT::Template::dump%>

at the bottom of your template.

I hope this helps.
