     The Family Planet is a stand-alone web site that allows users to create "planets" (which are groups) in which to share contact information, pictures, and a simple calendar. I have tried to make it very simplistic so that both young and old will be able to use it, with a fairly basic layout and design as well as help information on every page. I found that some of the commercial servers that did this were either a little too limiting or a little too complicated for all of the members of my family to use. I thought it would be fun to create a site that I could host on my own server that would have a layout and feel exactly like I wanted. I have seen similar code to this out there on the web so I thought I would offer up my efforts as well to add to the "free code knowledge base" that is already out there. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Please go to to download the file upload utility - I cannot include it on the PSC zip file (PSC is protecting against viruses). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ There is a demo site at PLEASE do not place any inappropriate material on the demo site, although feel free to poke around to get a good feel for what the Family Planet can do. The installation/setup is probably not worth going through if this isn't something that you are interested in setting up for yourself. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This site was created in Dreamweaver MX & mySql and is run on Win2K w/IIS. Enjoy! Jeff

' for :Family Planet 1.1
- The graphics on all of the pages were generated with Microsoft PhotoDraw
 2.0. The clipart images as well as the backgrounds were taken and modified 
 with that software.
- The file uploading utility was adapted by ASP Help -
 although by the time I am uploading this they appear to have gone out of 
 business or otherwise changed their web address. The software to install
 on the web host is included with this zip.
- The thumbnailer utility and support code was adapted from dImage by Dastrup
 Web Design - If you like using
 Family Planet be sure to go and sign up for the full version, you will 
 receive a code that will remove the "Evaluation" message that will appear
 on your thumbnails.
- The calendar code was supplied by Jacob "WickedPisser" Gilley, thanks to him
 for making such an easy calendar.asp file!
- A few lines of code to make a directory were taken from one of the Nuts 4 ASP
 tutorials -
- I used the Yaromat form validator plug-in to Dreamweaver to do all of the 
 field validation on the pages. It can be found at
- Thanks to all of the above!!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
