  1. Hello HartleySan and Matt, Thank you for posting back to me. Sorry for not posting back sooner. I am sorry as I have not been sure I have been clear enough. Matt has hit the nail on the head. That is correct Matt, that is how I want the database. I think my inexperience has made this harder to explain, I think. All I want to do is be able to add a print item and add a design item for the corresponding print item. I think what Matt has said is correct and will read more on this. If anyone could suggest any ideas or another design I would very grateful. Thank you for hel
  2. Hey everyone, I have another question about this. Could I not just put the item in the database manually with the design linked to the item? Sorry if I sound stupid, I am still learning. Thanks, Ben.
  3. Hi Terry, Yes I have also seen this too! This is also a great idea. I think that I need to be more better at programming to do that sort of thing! Thanks again, Ben.
  4. Dear Jonathon and HartleySan, Thank you for helping me, I have enjoyed read your posts back to me. Here is a link of what I mean: http://www.stationery-direct.co.uk/business-card-printing.php I forgot that I have printing options too which vary on each item! Thanks again for the help, Ben.
  5. Hi everyone, I am creating a print site with various printing items. I am planning out the site and I have a few issues that I need help with. With every product that I sell (be it business cards, flyers, posters etc) I need to have either a check box / tick box for an option to have a design made. Each of the designs varies in price according to item (business cards, flyers, posters etc). How would I go about planning this out in the database, so that they match the correct product? I hope this makes sense to someone? Thanks inadvance, Ben.
  6. Hi Larry, Once again thank you for replying to me. Thank you for the advice regarding e-mail. The site will have SSL and will look into encrypting form to e-mail. I have redesigned the form and no longer need it to have two form actions as I just have one form. I love learning php very much and learn something new each day. Keeps me busy! Thanks again, Ben. P.S. You can close this thread if you want to?
  7. Hey, Sorry I haven't been around to read these answers - I have been busy (like all of us!!) I think what I am going to do is set the prices in the database (as you said Larry) and have a Change Region at the top which will take the user to the correct location. I am going to read up on how to get a user location (say socks - item no 12345 - GBP) the user clicks the Change Region button and that takes them to socks - item no 12345 - USD. Hope you all followed! That way I have have both currencies in the database and not have to worry about it! Thanks, Ben.
  8. Hey, Thanks for this! Does anyone know if I can have to actions on one form? Thanks, Ben.
  9. Hi all, I have a site where people can sign up for a service. I want to be able to create a form that registers a user in my database (so they can log in, pay a bill and then log out). In the form I want to be able to send myself a form saying that I have a new order with the relevent information. So to be clear, Part 1 of the form would be a user signing up (the details like email and password would be used to access their account) Part 2 would be information sent over to me via email Please someone help me! Thanks, Ben.
  10. Hi Larry, Thank you for getting back to me. I have choosen to format the currency in USD and have a drop down at the top for GBP. I have a thought that I could design the first page with the US flag and UK flag the user would choose. In the database I would have tables for US and UK prices? Not sure this will work but I will give it a go! Thanks again, Ben.
  11. Hello everyone, I am new to the forums but I have been reading the forums for a while now. I have a couple of Larrys books, I have really enjoyed them but now I have a little problem and I am not sure where to turn. I need a little help with multi currency for a e-commerce store. I want users to choose from either GBP or USD. I have a few books on on e-commerce and php but I have not found a solution - that is why I am here! If you could point me in the right direction I would be very happy! Nice to meet you all, Ben.
