Rating system
Q1: Is it possible to make a rating system for DBman? - I would like a rating system capable of using a graphic bar showing the percentage of votes. It would also be great if visitors was able to write personal comments along with the vote.

Q2: I need each resource to have different information. example. I want to have a rating option for each resource, along with news for each resource. The news posting is handled by an external cgi script. The problem however is that I don't have a clue about how to set up a seperate template for each resource with this kind of information

Others have asked for a rating system, but I just haven't had the time to write it.

I don't understand what you want to do with question 2.

well - Each resource in the database is a bar/pub, and each has some news/events for the weekends. What I would like is whenever a resource is viewed, I would like some news and happenings for that exact pup to be shown. The news are viewed through an external CGI news script. So basicly I would like to have a different html table template for each resource with different information.

I'm probably explaining this awkward!

Could you possibly create an .html page as an example of what you want to do?

hm. I haven't designed it yet, but lets say I have a template file names localpup.html and anotherpup.html

I pull out a resource from DB man - ID1 for example with the info defined. Then I want localpup.html to be inserted below the database output.
For another resource (ID2) I want the anotherpup.html to be inserted below the DB section.

Did you get my reverse and awkward idea?

It just occurred to me that you are talking about actual templates -- like Links uses. I don't understand templates at all. (I'm not sure why, but they just don't make any sense to me.)

I could help you with structuring pages that were created in the html.pl file. But not with templates.

Let's look away from the tamplate thing.

I just want a flat .html file to be inserted in a table below a database resource.
A different .html file to be inserted for specific resources.

ID1 -> test.html
ID2 -> test2.html
ID3 -> test3.html
