Allow Users Of Website To Create Their Own Hyperlinks On A Page

Is it possible to allow a person whom navigates to a particular page to type
in a URL to a website they visit often, and have it be treated like code on
the page itself for them to use it as a hyperlink?

If so, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave Marden

Not with serverside code, classic ASP is serverside code.

A user cannot type serverside.
If so, any suggestions would be appreciated.
Please ask a clientside NG.

Then how when we allow users to enter notes, links, pictures, etc... are
we able to allow users to update the content of websites running on the
servers?

All you need is a admin page (or what you want to call it) to allow
users to add content based on where you are willing to allow them to put
it.
Whell, if you think you know,
show the serverside code to answer the OP's Q.

Perhaps the OP is content with your "yes"?

Make a form with 2 textboxes

One for the URL one for the link text

Post to a asp page and enter into a database, then retive from database and
create links like

response.write "<a href='"& rs("url") &"'>"& rs("text") &"</a>"
