Good on you mate for getting it sorted, your lead enabled us to resolve the problem.
There are so many variables in developing web apps that it sometimes feels like there is a plot against you.
I mean 12 months ago I didn't know ANYTHING about mysql/php and making websites.
And with DW CS3-4 and the WebAssist plugins (simply the best set of tools out there) and having this forum with guidance from Ray, his team and we the users on the front lines, I'm creating amazing stuff.
Rather than WA completely giving it to you on a plate (although at the time it may not seem like a good idea), that would, in itself limit your attainment of knowledge. I think the practice of going over and over the different plugins until you get it down cold you get a much better understanding of the whole language.
