desperately looking data assist tutorial store

Hi, i am building a website for my customer www.anniklucier.com/
I would like to build a store integrated in this design, i have red tons of treads and tutorials but i am unable to find what i want and i am even not sure if i use the right tool (Data Assist).

I want to have a page with multiple products with a buy button, i can live with a detail page products but i dont know how to generate it with my design.
everything is properly installed, php, server behaviors, etc. I have tried data assist wizard, php my admin but i dont know how to manage DB with the content picture etc.

I dont understand how i create the page with thumbs and hte link to the detailed page:
see example (they use Webassit) helmets/

what i am looking for is mainly this what and where does my customer will add new products? is there a page created or?
Please i have lost several days trying to figure it out by myself but... cant figure it out

thank you Jonathan

If you want to build a fully functional online store you will need to use the eCart extension, and most likely also use the Data Assist and Security Assist Extensions aswell.

The eCart Extension will give you the shopping cart functionality, along with payment gateways. Data Assist will allow you to develop a back end facility where you can add / remove / update products, orders and customer details and Security Assist will allow you to have a customer login facility during checkout.

You may also want to consider CSS Form Builder for emailing order receipts and maybe even Form Toolkit if you want to use Captcha and Datepickers as part of your ordering process.

To create a page with thumbnails that link the the product page you simply provide a standard HTML link with a URL variable e.g

http://www.mywebsite.com/product.php?id=<?php echo ($row_rsproduct['prod_id']); ?>

This tells the link to go to the product.php page and send a URL variable that contains the unique product ID for the requested product.

On the product detail page your recordset then needs to filter the products by the name of the URL variable (in the above case this is called id)

An online store can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Ian
