HTMLHelp Forums _ Databases _ Question about inserting DB in HTML.

Posted by: HitTheMovieList Nov 20 2016, 06:16 PM

I want to create an ecommerce site. Is there any way to create a database in access or in sql server management (with image, id, description etc.) and then link it within the HTML with some kind of code in a table. So I don't have to insert one by one the items.

P.S. This might be a dumb question but i'm newbie in HTML creation so any help would be apprciated.

P.S. 2 I don't know if that's the right section of asking such kind of things.

Thank you,
In advance. biggrin.gif

Not sure I understood the question, but HTML alone can't do anything. Normally a server-side script (like PHP) would print the HTML, using data pulled from the DB.

That looks like you want an ordinary DB-generated site, like I described above. This is not trivial to do by yourself, though. Do you have any experience with online database creation and server-side scripting? If not, it's probably best to find some readymade e-commerce package.

Actually no, I have no idea on server-side scripting. Is there any way to get any ready made teamplates and adjust it with some "google help" on my needs? If not, then it's ok! That's my last question.

Yes, as Christian said there are ready made solutions. I think even those have a learning curve though.

Here you find several hundred of them written in PHP, some paid and some free. Check the corresponding sections for other languages if you prefer something else.

In case you are planning to use PayPal there are even scripts for dealing with that.
