Very frustrated newbie...
I recently purchased DBMan SQL for an online game I run. Our players have been wanting a more automated system, and after much searching a decided to use their donations and purchase DBMan SQL after seeing it do wonders with another such game.

My problem is that I've got a mental block about dealing with it. I read the manual, and I've installed it sucessfully, created a table, etc. etc., but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make anything look and act the way I want it to, expecially forms. The only one I've tried working with is the "add_form" for adding information to a table - and so far no dice. I can sort of make it look ok using a combination of my own HTML code and the command Dbsql :: HTML:: generate_ add_ form, but it's still not what I'm looking for. Not to mention I can't get it to add the logged in member's name and e-mail address automatically..

This is what I'd like to see:

This is what I get with form generation:

According to the avaliable data, I should be able to make it look and act as I wish using simple HTML, which I'm well versed in. The problem is, I can't do it!

A little help? Maybe someone could talk me though the ropes?
