In my quest to learn more than I know about hmtl and scripts and all I came across my own online cheat sheet: prewritten scripts :eek: Maybe someone else may like these?

Hotscripts.com is better I guess.
But I also use resourceindex.com. They have lots of good things.

The thing about prewritten scripts is they are probably vastly overused and subpar to something original. I wouldn't trust it!

I don't like to use pre written scripts. I prefer to learn how to write my own scripts, so their more original.

Though for pre written scripts, hotscripts is better.

Depending on your business, a prewritten script may be fine. Since all of us here have small businesses (as opposed to medium or large), I think prewrittens are acceptable.

I usually find prewritten scripts difficult to customise and tweak. And I miss out on the pleasures of coding it myself. ;)

Their fine for small businesses I guess but their hard to customize and understand what is happening but a lot of people use prewritten scripts.

I agree with Xav although I use prewritten scripts to save time.

I usually use pre written scripts, but highly modify it. I just use them as a base script.

Unfortunately, some prewritten scripts are written in a way so that you can't understand how they work, making them a real pain to modify.

Nah, I'm quite good with that :)
Never had problems, unless the script is encrypted....
