MySQLi and Databridge

I have got a mac and the latest Dreamweaver - I have upgraded to Data Bridge after many years of not using this method for building websites. So a quick question...

After I've created the Products page in Data Bridge I want to tweak some of the elements and add in my own code specifically for pulling off say 6 cars from the database that have 'yes' in the field 'star_car' and repeat them on a page. Also at the footer I would like to pull some testimonials from another table to show.

Very simply it would be along the lines of: SELECT from table where field 'star_car' = 'yes'

So my points are:

• Would I need to purchase MySQLi to do this correctly in addition to the Data Bridge I have just got?
• Is the older method of recordsets and repeat regions out of date? I can see the panels there now Data Bridge is installed
• The pages created by the new data Bridge Wiizard are they fine, is the code generated the same as MySQLi (ie not outdated)?

Can someone please clarify this?


I've just found this tutorial on your website:

Which gives me the impression that Data Bridge comes with its own Recordsets panel that I can use without purchasing MySQLi

Again, if someone could clarify!

Many thanks

You would have to use the FREE beta version to generate MySQLi code. The current release version of Data Bridge uses the old standard MySQL code.
