Are these possible with dbman?
I am currently looking to convert to a database driven website. I have numerous cgis running at my non-profit art/writing site which I thought can be consolidated into numerous databases run from one engine, I have no access to mySQL (yet)

Can dbman handle multiple databases?

Yesterday, I created my first database of a portfolio display in Ezdb, whereby user can search and get a result listing of pictures and short description, the user can then click on any item and be directed to a page with more description....

Is that possible with DBman? EZdb interface is quite nasty, and support is worse than minimal it appears.

Is it possible to return a random record?

I read on this forum, that it is possible to truncate a field to be displayed as a summary field..... what I can't a way to do in EZdb, and the ability to not display blank fields is definitely nice and based on what I read here, POSSIBLE. I am very interested in switching!

Any advice appreciated.
