I understand the concept of what I want to do but just cannot figure out how to best do what I need.
What I would like to do, two things really:
1. View a list of items from dbman in an already existing html file. In my example it is the name of the group and I want them all to appear in a dropdown list so users can select the group from within the form. I'm currently donig this now but what I did was create a script inside dbman that creates an external text file and when users go to the form, it displays the txt file within .shtml file. This works but I'm sure there is an easier method. It also only works when the admin remembers to "export" the file after she has entered groups into the list.
2. In addition to the above I would like to see if it is possible to display another field from dbman, this time its the groups mission statement, on another html file. So we have the html file that already exists but I would like to popular a portion of this with a specific groups mission statement. Ideally the url would have a parameter that points to the group, example: http://www.webpage.com/...ay.html?group=sample
After typing this it now seems like I'm asking a lot - if so, I truly apologize. This forum has been very helpful to me in the past and there are a lot of knowledgeable users here. I love dbman and think its flexible to what I need....just don't know exactly how to go about doing all of this.
THANKS AGAIN, IN ADVANCE! Jon
