  1. Ok, I think I got it...(hopefully)...I'm going to tinker with it and see what I can come up with...thanks.
  2. Yes, this does make sense. I have seen this done before. Is this just a matter of me creating a variable for product id numbers and putting them in the URL?
  3. Hi Larry, First of all this Effortless E-Commerce has been very helpful in my understanding of build e-commerce sites. I truly feel it is the best resource out there on the subject. I am new to PHP and MySQL, and your books have helped me learn in a short period of time. My question has to do with .htaccess and mod_rewrite. I am using Yahoo Small Business as a host (for now), but they do not allow .htaccess. I know it would be easier for me to change hosting services, but I cannot at the moment, so I need to find a way around this problem. You stated on page 175 under the Tips sidebar that 'If you can’t use mod_rewrite on your server, just skip this section and change every URL in the HTML files accordingly.' Where exactly would I change these URLs? Is there an alternative to this similar to the alternatives for the stored procedures? Thank you in advance.
  4. This could be me being a total newbie, but when I was testing the registration and the reset password pages, I don't receive an email when testing both pages. I registered three email addresses and the validation email didn't arrive for any of them. Everything else works for me as it is supposed to, but it seems to be a problem with the mail function. To my novice eyes it looks correct. I won't bother to post all of the page code, except for the mail function from the registration.php page. Is there any reason why this function won't send a validation email? // Send a separate email? $body = "Thank you for registering at <whatever site>. Blah. Blah. Blah.\n\n"; mail($_POST['email'], 'Registration Confirmation', $body, 'From: admin@example.com');
