    User Defined Personalization


    I need someone to point me in the right direction. I would search, but I am not certain what I neen to search for. Here is what I want to do.

    My Intranet homepage has four content-blocks of information. Each content-block has specific type of information (i.e. HR stuff or international stuff).

    I'd like to add more of these content-blocks an give our employees the option of choosing which four they want to see.

    Most portal technology offers this, such as My Yahoo. What kind of technology do I need to look into? Cookies? Are there any scripts that I can use to assist with this? Our users do not login to the Intranet currently, if that helps.

    Thanks in advance.

    If the users are not logging into the site then you will have to use cookies.

    Basicly what you would have to do is have the user select all the content-blocks that they want to display and then write something to identify those blocks, such as the block name or id number. Then read all the cookies and display the saved blocks.
    To read the cookies:
    Read Cookie

    And to write values to a cookie:Write Cookie
