If I had thought otherwise, I would not have wasted my time with my other posts.

  I too bought the entire Suite at $900.00 and have yet to be able to use it all, ... My biggest complaint is Web Assist has done a superb job on marketing ... but then the documentation is misleading, My main plan was to buy ECart to develop ecommerce sites, well, You really should caution "Unless you had prior PHP, MySql, development and training your going to have to learn this before diving into using Ecart! ... So now, I have decided. to start learning PHP and MySql.

  I too have had the software for 2 years and have yet to use it fully ... why should I invest more money in other extensions thinking they will simplify things when in truth I will be purchasing other items I cannot use... yes, if I used this software day in and day out like they do, it would be easy to create websites.

  ... But we do hire people that already understand php and mySQL, and have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, which is probably the biggest stumbling block for new users like you.  

Enough said, I think!!!!

Glad others have joined in on this thread. My basic point remains ... there is no harm in "being forced to learn" PHP and MySQL in order to make the most of WebAssist products. But if that is what is required, then WebAssist should make it clear. I don't think it will diminish sales.

I for example gritted my teeth and went out and bought Zend Studio just so I could decode and reverse engineer what WebAssist products were doing, and pick up mistakes I was making as I was building my own sites. WebAssist could in fact use its own products to give a clearer idea what its products are capable of, and so have made my purchase of Zend Studio unnecessary.

The reality is that I have been able to use WebAssist products as a spur and incentive to go from zero to a complete commercial and working site, along with registration system, purchasing of discounted products, differential style sheets per page and so on and so forth. That is a credit to WebAssist. But ... I am sure that WebAssist did not have it in mind that I should spend a few hundred bucks on someone else's products just so I could learn to use its own. What on EARTH is the point of that? Why not organize things here so that I spend that money here at WebAssist? Crazy, if you ask me. With a little bit of extra work on your part, the money I spent over at Zend and elsewhere I would have spent here. Think of the money, people. !!!

Bye again.
