Do I need a database or static items?
I've just purchased eCart and about to start building my first ecommerce site using Dreamweaver. We'll be using WorldPay and redirecting customers to their site for payment.
So far I've only built a few static sites in Dreamweaver but have now got the hang of that.
I've watched so many tutorials but I still have some really basic questions on how to actually bring eCart into my site which I can't seem to find the answers to. I think I'm making this harder than it should be!
1. Do I just build the site as usual in HTML but this time saving my pages as PHP? Then when ready just add eCart objects to the relevant page?
2. We only have around 10 products which won't need updating often so do I need to use a database?
3. So, should I 'add static item to cart' or 'look up item from recordset'?
4. And would I manually create my own database or upload one and edit it?
Any pointers just to get me going would be very welcome.
