Thanks for your patience and quick reply.

In reading the help doc #5 entitled "Incorporating the User Registration Solution Pack into your existing site", it says that the (I quote WA here):

"Dreamweaver templates (.dwt) can easily be applied to the pages in User Registration Solution Pack. If you are using a Dreamweaver template, follow these steps for applying the template to these new pages.

1. Open a page from the User Registrstion Solution Pack in Dreamweaver.

2. From the Assets...etc."

Unfortunately, I am not using Dreamweaver. I am using Pablo Software Solutions WYSIWYG Web Builder 5. Hopefully you will be familiar with that software. I find it a new(b) designer's dream, but it may be run-of-the-mill, or possibly worthlesss to you seasoned builders. The promo for WA URSP said it can be used with ANY WYSIWYG builder.

Any idea how I incorporate it into that builder? I can find no way to bring the URSP .php files into this builder. Do I copy and paste code? Is that mixing .php with .html? Will the universe explode at the speed of light if I combine the two? (Good safety tip, Igon)

I am not familiar with Dreamweaver, so I can't compare the two. I really don't want to shift to DW for 30 days and then have to buy it because it's the only thing that works. The $360 is a little scary too.

I downloaded a .php / .html editor anticipating your response to the required editing of the user defined files in URSP. (Turned put to be a trial too. I'll look again.) I opened the user_registration.php file from URSP in the editor and copied the code. I stuck it in at what seemed to be an appropriate place in the WB5-built index page and published it, locally and to Hostgator. Nothing showed up on either page.

I am missing something so basic here that I know that when the light goes on I will have to go get the heel of my hand surgically removed from my forehead. But I can't, for the life of me, put this together. If all you kind, patient and knowledgeable people run away from this newb, I totally understand and empathize. I will learn this.

I am going to download the DB tutorial for sale at WA and see if that helps anything, but my questions seem more in the line of basic site structure than database ignorance.

Any suggestions? And of course, thanks for sitting through this pathetic diatribe.
