Uploading issue

Hello,
I need help. I've spent several days and nights and am not getting anywhere. When I bought ecart, I thought this will be a piece of cake. I can simply use this extension in my already built html site. I thought it looked so simple on the video clip. Now, here I am several days later, absolutely confused and my client doesn't understand what's the issue. We just wanted a simple site to sell some darn tshirts and hats and prints. I cannot figure out how in the world to specify different sizes of shirts or hats when a person is ordering. The posters are all the same size. When I used Paypal's add to cart, i was able to do this easily. ecart doesn't have this option I guess? Every time I search here, I see similar issues that people are having, but the fixes seem to apply to their unique situation, (ie different prices for different sizes.). In my situation, everything's the same price, no matter what size shirt they buy. I simply cannot understand how to do this.

I would love to upload the site so someone could help me understand what is wrong, but even that is a chore. Whereas HTML was a piece of cake to upload, using PHP required me to install xampp, php, etc. to test on my computer. Now, when I try to upload to my actual paid hosting service, I can't do it. The DW CS4 interface asks me "What URL would you use to browse to the root folder of your site?" By default, it says: localhost
SO I just kept that there. When I click TEST URL, I get a pop up, "Dreamweaver cannot use the prefix you entered to display live data" WHAT?

This should have been simple, point and click. But it seems that a person must have an incredible amount of understanding. I thought I was pretty smart, but I'm totally lost in the woods. Not only that my thumbnail images don't even display. I specified the exact folder they were in, too.
