can't generate catalog pages : LUSENET : S-Mart Shopping Cart : One Thread


I'm testing out the script for the first time and everything is going great except I can't seem to get the catalog pages to generate. I have been able to set up my database, but when I try to create the pages with the following recommended path... (with appropriate corrections made for my server)

...all I get is my header and footer to appear with nothing in between.

Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

Is your database in the right directory? It goes in with the HTML files, not in the cgi-bin. I put it in both places because I didn't know where it went and then changed one then the other to determine where it was recieving the input from? I assume you have the config file set to use the database and you've got it named the right thing.

I received an email response with instructions to add "&type=all" to the path that generates the catalog pages. It should look like this...

It worked.

TALK ABOUT UN-DOCUMENTED DETAILS! I've been messing around with my .db for hours trying to figure out why it * STOPPED* working! I had no idea its basepath was based off the header/footer paths. sheessh! I'm going to email Barry Robison and tell him to add that choice bit of info into the smart.cgi comments!
