    Is it possible to change peoples homepages, or prompt them to change their homepage with a script?

    Have also been looking for this, I think it can be done via php or/and javascript but the only code I can think of requires button press and I think your talking about something else..

    This must be possible as i have been on plenty of sites that have a link or button saying 'make this your homepage'.

    Here just found this on google:

    Yup, javascript. PHP is a server-side language and has nothing to do with this.

    Do you want a link that changes the home page or some kind of spyware thingy that does it with out the user permission.

    If you want to do it without their permission then just change the text in the link so it looks like it does something else eg:

    <a href="#" onClick="this.style.behavior='url(#default#homepag e)';this.setHomePage('www.yourdomain.com');">click here for a free iphone</a>

    People will get seriously pissed off with you for it though, don't expect to get any trust from them or for them to buy anything from you afterward.

    Just a thought, what if you put your ppc affiliate referal link instead of yourdomain.com. Then everytime they opened their browser they would earn you money. if you could get enough people to click that link you would clean up.

    I might just check that out.

    What do the rest of you think?

    or has this been done before.

    If there was a script that worked with the big three browsers IE/FF/safari on that worked on the basis of

    IF IE--

    IF FF--

    IF safari--

    A script that worked for all of them, It could be sooo powerful. You could create a mini search engine with adwords and have some really really good recurring income.

    I don't know of any plugins, but you can do it pretty easily on your own.
