    I'm a webmaster at a game site www.ultimaterct.net

    If you go to the parks exchange, you will notice that all the downloads are out of order. I want to sort them by creator's name. Will HTML or Dreamweaver let me do that?

    Here's the link to the park page: http://www.ultimaterct.net/parkx.htm

    thanks

    I've re-sorted the list for you using dreamweaver mx. PM me your email address and I'll send you the page.

    Attached is the file. Just change the .txt to .htm and it should be okay.

    Hope this helps

    The last file didn't work. When I saved the original version from your site, IE mucked up the image locations.

    Try this one:

    I don't think that option to sort is in Dreamweaver, but there is an option to set up a repeating table where you can open the properties and nove entire rows to the location you would like them. I haven't used one in a while so if you want to know how I can look it up for you.

    What you probaly should do is get someone to code a little thing for you.

    Easily accomplished in mysql/php that would allow people to sort it the way they would like it to.

    But that could be too complicated if you dont know php/mysql so you'll just have to sort it by hand it looks like.

    Looks like your web host does support PHP and MySQL. It would be a fairly simple script to create and you would also need a little admin page to administer the entries in the database.

    I don't know because I don't know much about ASP.


    But myphpadmin lets you add databases, tables, insert, edit delete ect ect information from rows and stuff.

    that kind of stuff. It's a really good thing to have if you want to check out your datbase structure. I also use it when I'm developing things in PHP.
