Re: Different category template for different category In reply to
Evoir,

When I first started with Links SQL, I was overwhelmed. Links SQL is a very powerful and versatile program. Both these aspects of Link SQL mean learning something new.

I agree with Pugdog that comparing Links SQL with a BB program is like comparing apples & oranges. I also think that an SQL based link script should be though of more like a CAD/CAM program. They are both very powerful, will take some time to learn and will reward you in production later.

In customizing the look and feel of the program, I started by choosing the template set that I liked best. Then I went in and customized the text messages, colors, graphics and so on.

Then I hit a point where I needed to start using the tags and if/then/end (loops?) statements in the html files. Once I saw a couple of examples, some of the earlier messages I saw made a more sense and I realize this is not impossibly hard or lengthy learning curve as I originally thought.

One other thing, you mention purchasing Links SQL for a client. So for whatever reason asp or hand coded pages where not thought to be the solution. Evidently, you examined and discarded bulletin boards, image galleries, content & news management systems and focus on links programs, specifically Links SQL. I would guess Links SQL is still your best solution.

My suggestion would be to explain fully what you are trying to accomplish with Links SQL and how you were thinking about doing it. Once people understand your purpose, the explanations might better fit your needs.
