I just used the wizard and it added these old style directories. The rest of the site is still an ADDT site except for the WYSIWYG editor. Plus I searched the site to confirm the new wizard created the directories.

I ofen just build my own forms and use the server behavior panel for most complex of unique operations, but the wizard is nice and a great time saver for spitting out basic table/recordset management (and if we get row sorting, even more useful). ADDT was undeniably heavy (though still consolidated to the includes directory).

What I liked with the old WADA is that it was easy to to customize and to use in a variety of layouts. This new wizard is feeling more like ADDT where the layout is very specific and with so many dependent elements that adjusting it is cumbersome at best and perhaps impossible. (listen to me I am reminiscing about what I used 2 days ago). I am going to have to go back to designing my own forms for the mos basic operations and I think that is going in the wrong direction.

I'm not referring to the complexity of the wizard. I referring to the complexity of the layout that makes it hard to customize. I'm looking for the wizard to spit out a simple set of pages/forms for database management that I can manipulate easily. The only complexity I want is in tools that make the functionality of the pages better (lightbox delete, row sorting, etc). This is what appealed to me about WA in the first place. While I missed many features of ADDT, what I did not miss when I changed to WA was the clean simplicity of the layout for customization which was a nightmare with ADDT.
