    Webmerge and forms question
    Hi,

    Though this program seems to be geared toward affiiliate programs, I stumbled across it looking for a way to have my products in a dbase in excel and output that to an html template. Up to this point all my products are just handcoded into the pages. I think having a product database would make maintenance much easier.. It seems this product is ideal for this too.

    I've read the tutorials and played around with the demo for an hour or two and I am having an issue with using the form post method for a buy url. I use Mal's E Shopping cart and each of my buy buttons are unique and look like this below. Since they are not simply a URL, they do not come out right in the template. Is there a way to make these work? Any help appreciated...

    <form action=http://ww9.aitsafe.com/cf/add.cfm method=POST>
    <font color="#000000"><b>My Product Name:<br>
    <font color="#0000FF">$11.35</font></b></font>
    <input type=Hidden name=userid value=X123456>
    <input type=Text name=qty value=1 size="2" maxlength="2">
    <input type=Hidden name=return value=www.mydomain.com/myproduct.htm>
    <input type=Hidden name=product value="My Product Name">
    <input type=Hidden name=price value=11.35>
    <input type=Submit value="Add To Cart" name="Submit">
    </form>

    <input type=Hidden name=return value=www.mydomain.com/myproduct.htm>

    Change to:

    <input type=Hidden name=return value=www.mydomain.com/[WM-Field: BuyURL raw]>

    Be sure and use whatever the buy url column header is in your feed.

    This should work.
