as per caht the other evening, have basically got the main structure sorted.
couple of thing at this point:
1) on the update page (attached) amd struggling to get the dropdown at line 215 to show the selection associated with what is in the db
2) on the results page (attached) am struggling to get the sub cat to at line 335 to show and display under the appropriate parent category
have also attached a a screenshot of the db structure
next step is to get the image management pages to associate with the sub categories...
