This section is where you tell the GetWeb API what directory to reference on the web server to publish your messaging websites and what directory hosts the CGI executable.
The GetWeb module provides a CGI executable that can be implemented in one of two ways
Hosting messaging websites
This option allows you to host a messaging website or series of messaging websites on your web server and GetWeb comes pre-loaded with a few stock templates to help you get started with this process. It should be noted that these templates are completely customizable and can be edited in any way you see fit.
This template should be tied to a group and provides a messaging website which offers a list of recipients and groups available to be messaged. Which recipients are groups are available to message is controlled by the member list of the group that the template is tied to. If a recipient or group is a member of the group the template is tied to, they show up on the website. If they aren't, they don't.
This template should be tied to an Ad-Hoc recipient and provides a messaging website which offers a field to enter a phone number to message rather than a static list to choose from.
POST/GET request to GetWeb's CGI Executable
The webgate CGI can be used with either a POST or GET method.
The POST method can be used by creating a form on your webpage and pointing to the webgate.exe program in the FORM ACTION statement.
This would send a message to the recipient 'pageme', from 'fromme', with a message of 'This is a test'
Just to note, the three variables the webgate.exe CGI receiver is expecting to see are USER, FRM and MSG. USER specifies who the message should go to, FRM specifies who or what sent the message and MSG specifies the text to be sent.
