    I have just paid for the full version and will be starting asap. I am wondering what feed to use first? is there a really easy one? obviously not too big, that would be a first one to start?

    I am reading all I can on this board and really want to start off right. i do not want to have too many tiers as yet, as it seems very confusing and i do not think i have quite figured it out as yet.

    Thanks for any ideas, and thanks for all the tips on this board, it seems to be a bit more understandabale since i read it all!

    thanks i will try that one after i have finished the funtocollect! i have been trying it all day, and am having a right laugh with it!!!

    i cannot understand why the catagories are coming up with lots of rows in between them coming up blank??? it looks really stupid!

    if anyone knows why, please let me know asap, before i throw my computer out the window, lol

    I am using this for my index page

    [WM-RECORD cols=3 width=470]
    [WM-IndexLabel: Field_009]
    [WM-Field: Field_009]
    [/WM-IndexLabel][/WM-Record] [WM-LinkIndex]Back to
    List[/WM-LinkIndex]

    Tamalyn;

    The codes that you posted are to create a table with 3 columns. Do you reall want your categories in tabluar form, or do you want them in a vertical list? If you just want a vertical list then take out the "cols=3 width=470"

    Also, check for extraneous HTML codes that are hidden within your WM coding. When you use the WM table generation function, it does not like to have any row or colum HTML codes between [WM-RECORD] and [/WM-Record]. All you need to space your Categories (without blank rows) should be a well positioned <BR> tag after [WM-Field: Field_009].

    Have a Creative Day!

    thansk for that, but yes i do want it on columns.

    i have been trying the funtocollect script which is very hard!! i have cleaned up the txt file and keep trying to do it, but everytime i run it, the pages come up with only some of the products, then they seem to be replaced by others, then by the end of the feed being run, there are only 1 or 2 products on most of the category pages. the last catagory - zelda prodcust ahve most of them showing. i tryed sorting them in excel by catagory but that has not worked.

    am i missing something?? should i sort them? why are they being replaced?? i did not think i would have this many problems!

    please help!
