[QUOTE=CraigR;68385]What do you have in terms of WA extensions?
Thanks so much for your time Craig, VERY much appreciated. I actually have the entire extension set under the annual membership.
In order to display your database information on your template based page, you need to create a connection to your database.
once this is done, you create recordsets, which filter the data from your database, according to the parameters you set.
Me: The connection and recordsets are good, no problem there...
You can use dreamweaver to display this data, or use dataassist to help make the process a bit easier.
Me: Ah, OK here is where I'm stuck. Is it DataAssist that will populate the template? If so, it wasn't clear how to produce say, over 50 pages, of product detail content.
Let's say I have all the recordsets and the template ready. How would I create a page for each product and have the proper fields filled in from the database?
Sorry again if that sounds dumb (I'm still on the learning curve)...
in your scenario, it seems like you want a products page to list your products, which can be filtered by category, depending on the category chosen from the menu.
this would link to a product detail page, depending on the product chosen, where the single product item would be displayed with all relevant images and details. This page is where you would add your add to cart behavior.
Me: How should the product page be created, and where would that reside in the directories? (in terms of coding — in a way it could 'talk to' the individual product detail pages?
Thanks again for your time and assistance, Craig! I feel I'm thisclose to getting this dialed in, maybe with just a few more stupid questions. ;-p Thanks again
