Select/Enum field in Form + how to create new pages
Hi,

I'm working my way through creating the directory for www.meowhoo.com and have a couple of quetions:

1. I want to add a "country" column to the add/modify-link form. I have a list of all the countries so I want this to be a closed field where users select from a drop down list.

I added a country column to the links properties. The column has the following attributes - col type: Enum, col index: regular, col values: (a list of all countries, seperated by commas), not null: yes, form display: country, form type: select, form names: (identical list of countries), form values: (identical list of countries).

In the include_form template I added a link that says:

<tr><td
valign="top"><%body_font%>Country: </font></td>
<td> <select class="button" name="Country" value="<%if Country%><%Country%><%endif%>" size="40">
</td></tr>

I did try other variations in the template, but I still can't get it to display a proper drop down list, like the one users get to select their categories from. Unsure

2. On another issue - I want to LSQL to create pages for my FAQ, Advertising, Privacy Statement etc., using the same globals and formats it uses to create the rest of the directory. I can create template called respectively faq.html etc. but how can I get LSQL to build them whenever I do a "build all". I guess I need to go into the nph-page.cgi script, but is there anywhere else I need to make a change at? I want to be able to change the script once and then whenever I'll want to change these pages, just work on their templates (which will have their content) and then run "build all". Hope I'm making myself clear. I can make these as static HTML pages and edit them manually whenever I change the directory's design, but I'd much prefer rely on the globals to create a unified look all over.

Thanks.
