Recently Bought PowerCMS Builder and...

..really want to like it, but having trouble. I was hoping for a click to build type operation, but I'm either proving to be too obtuse or the software just isn't as intuitive as it should be.

I have used PowerCMS (1) on a client's site with no issues; great right out of the box. However with Builder, I'm trying to do what I consider 'the basics' as per the advertised features.

Mostly it's working as it should, but I can't figure out the Dynamic Pages for the life of me! I've searched the forum for how to create and manage the dynamic pages but I just can't get it working at all. My Dynamic Page will only display the latest of the content inserted, not the range of information based on using the extended url as outlined in the system's own help files.

Is there a walkthrough of the system for someone with limited PHP knowledge? Mostly just for the Dynamic Pages right now... Is is at all possible that the Builder can be used to edit/update/adjust PowerCMS2? If so, since PowerCMS2 is now defunct from the sales page, can Builder owners have a copy of the completed structure as a learning base?

I'd love to keep the plugin but find it more frustrating that helpful right now... and I'm in dire need of something I can work with for a website bid I'm waiting to submit.

Issue resolved, my mistake was in trying to use a 'Dreamweaver Template' whereas the 'Template' page referred to is just a basic PHP page with the appropriate content area added. Thanks again for the prompt assistance!
