    Before you start programming, decide what you want to do with the product information.
    How would visitors want to interact with it?
    What is your goal for adding the information?

    Then you'll need to select a programming language like PHP and do some mysql queries (assuming it is a mysql database) and reach your goal!

    I want to display the products like an ecommerce store like how goldcan does them.

    I can't seem to find a thread that helps me to get the PHP code needed.

    chillini,
    I take it from your post above that the thread that I pointed you to, that you don't know how to modify the code.
    Do you have any php programing? or is php really new to you?
    I don't believe someone is going to write an entire script all in one thread so that it can be boxed and sold as is. Each site should be unique in its on way.

    mm yeah that thread's php code comes in a few sets i'm not sure if i need to combine them all into one php file, and what I would need to modify...I can read and interpret the php code well but in terms of adding new code I wouldn't know how to.

    There are plenty of good tutorials for displaying database info with PHP on websites. Really once you learn to query a database to get what you want, almost everything else is formatting and creativity.
