    Too Stupid to Set Up Webmerge
    Sheesh. I can do a simple Webmerge setup, but when I try to do too many sub pages it turns into a disaster. I've gone through the tutorial --- ohhhh ---- maybe 50 times or more.

    What I am TRYING to do is: (example)

    Main Category Page
    > SubCategories
    >>Sub-sub Categories
    >>> Individual Company Pages

    So pretending this was for restaurants,

    Main Category would be Restaurants
    > SubCategories would be: Pizza, Cajun, Chinese
    >>Sub-Sub would be: Cheap, Moderate, Expensive
    >>>Individual would be: Pizza Hut, etc..

    Four different templates for each.

    Is this real complicated to accomplish?

    Thanks,

    There is a helpful tutorial (here)with a set of sample templates and step by step instructions to help you get started. They are kind of outdated but functional. I'm on my third rewrite trying to get a final that is all ready to go. So far it has done very well, but left me with hundreds of pages that needed manual editing for things like alt and title tags. I just throw them away and try again. There are several parts of the setup that I have not found documentation for but I'm sure it's in there somewhere. The set of four templates produces everything at one time - you don't need to repeat the process..unless you might need pages that are widely different for different categories/subcategories.

    The problem I have been having with that setup is that the imagepath does not give you a place to add alt tags for images or titles to the links. If you don't use the imagepath terms in the template, it doesn't do what you want. Makes me wish I had nothing to do for about a week.

    The WM-ImagePath tag is a convenient way to do simple img tags, but if you need something it doesn't handle automatically you can just use the WM-Field tag within your own img tag in your template:

    <img src="[WM-Field: MyImagePathField]" alt="[WM-Field: MyAltInfoField]">
