Assigning dynamic menu links on page creation

Hi,

I'm going to purchase css menu writer for a job that has come up.

The client wants to control the menu dynamically which also contains sub menus, No problem here.


Here's my problem, I have 3 seperate admin forms

1 For user profiles
1 for services
1 for general page details

Usually in the admin areas I would have a link labelled Manage Profiles, manage Services and manage Pages and just send the user to the appropriate dynamic page to be entered.

This client wants the ability to select the type of dynamic page to add. So my question is how would i control this as the menus?

Client select Profile Page template, enters the details but then wants this page to be located under the menu as a sepearte page not related to the normal profiles. He wants to name the page himself and have it appear under a menu or a sub menu of his choice.

How do i control an unknown qty before it already exisits?

you would need to use a recordset to create the menu.

When the client creates the new page, you need to have a way to record that in your database, then you can create a recordset to populate the menu.

I've already figured that part out. Looks like it had to be a 2 part step

1 - User creates a page using their choice of dynamic template
2- User then has option to assisgn the new page to either Menu or Sub Menu

I was hoping to complete the step in one process but I can't seem to find how to retrieve the next increment for the recordID. Any hints on how to do this would be appreciated.

getting the next record number can be problematic and unreliable. it can be done using an SQL command:

SHOW TABLE STATUS LIKE 'yourTableName'

One of the columns returned will be named "Auto_Increment" this will contain the next index
