Hiding Products

Would appreciate any help to hide products using a radio button on my Products Update Page.

I have a Product Live Colum in my database and in my Update Page. What I need to do is link / Bind these two together so that I can make a product either visible or not on the product pages of my catalogue.

Any Ideas on doing this would be appreciated.

Hi
You could use the Search for Boss behaviour its listed in Dreamweaver as Utilities as Show Region Utility to only show the Product if Product_Live_Column = 1 assuming your are setting that column as 1 or 0 (true / false).

In your criteria for displaying a record in the 'public' area, you want to add the column to your filter critera in the recordset.

Something like..

SELECT * FROM tableproducts (or wherever) where ProductLive = 1

this will then only show the rows you want to display

in the 'admin' section, you want to show all rows, to enable you to see which rows are live and which ones are not.

in the edit record page, you would have a checkbox linked to the recordset to show checked when value is '1' and unchecked when value is '0'

updating the record should set the row value depending on the state of the checkbox

I was thinking it was something like. I have
SELECT *
FROM products
WHERE ProductCategoryID = 4
ORDER BY ProductID ASC

can i use a second WHERE value that of where ProductLive = 1

if you want to use 2 criteria in the where clause, you can use the keyword 'AND'

eg

sql_and_or.asp

this is the error

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Live = 1 ORDER BY ProductID ASC LIMIT 0, 10' at line 1
