not a good tutorial.

Thanks but that tutorial is not really clear and some steps are missing. Is there a detailed tutorial on how to do this ? As the versions do not match with your current extentions ( thats what I think as the menus and the menu names do not match) it's not really easy to be followed. For example, I cant figure out what to do on step 7, as there is no customize Your Results Page UI option, my window is shown at the attachetment and Should I choose Puplic or Administrative , after choosing that is there any other steps to be configured on this page ? ( cause it gives error if I do nothing as it is in the tutorial )

3.Click the Manage Pages tab.
4.Click the Define Features button
5.Add only a results page.
6.Do not add any other pages as these pages will not be used.
7.On the the customize Results page UI, click the Customize Your Results Page
8..Select any column.
9.Click OK on the Add Selected To List dialog.
10.Click OK to close the Custmoize Your Results Page dialog.
11.Rename that page download_center.php.
12.Click Finish to create the page.
13.Click OK on the Save As dialog ( you may save if you wish )

Sorry to be asking so many questions , but I have bought (and paid quite a lot of money on super suite) this extention cause I cant do these on my own, I think the tutorials should have been more clear and step to step for people who have little knowledge on webassist products.

Thanks,

In step 7, you should click the plus button to select a column that will show on the results page.

What version of Data Bridge do you have installed?

Make sure it is the latest version, 1.1.8. if you have a previous version installed, uninstall it from the extension manager before installing the newer one.

That error happens if you use one of the application presets in Data Bridge, but the selected table does not have the same columns in it.

If you are using one of the rpresets, make sure to select the option to create the table.

for the SQL Error, send a copy of the page, I need to see the code to tell what is causing the error.

I am using only the database I downloaded for this tutorial.

I am using only the database I downloaded for this tutorial. ( web assist free ecommerce Mysql database ) and the tables in it. I havent made any changes to any of them. First I wantded to follw the tutorial as it is and learn how to do it, then I was planning to create my own database.

As for the page, I wanted to create a new one and start from the begining, now Dreamweaver gives this message even from the first step; when Database>DataAssist Pages is seletected. ? You will see the code window also on the attachement. I havent even done anything to the page...

really need a much better Tutorial on "how to sell Digital goods" with webassist.

also there is again no WADAorderdetails Recordset as told in the tutorial under server behaviors ( I have downloaded and I am using the "WebAssist Free eCommerce MySQL database (Optional) wa_ecommerce_db.zip" as told. Do they mean "Dynamic Text (WADA.DetailProductID)" But when this seleceted the optionas/window opens does not match the following steps.

Now that DataAssist has created our download center page, we will modify the Recordset on the page to include the orders and products tables, as well as specify a parameter that checks to see if the product is a digital good.
1.Open the Server Behaviors panel by choosing Window > Server Behaviors.
2.Double-click to open the WADAorderdetails Recordset.
3.If you do not see the SQL text area, click Advanced.
4.Replace the Recordset that appears in the SQL text area with the following query.
