thanks for the update, I said I would get to this later.
I found the same problem. The basic stuff was easy. But, in the end, it is all web server access with a lot of refreshes and so many exceptions to the language as things progress in complexity.
Then, there was CoffeeCup.
CoffeeCup like MSAccess runs on your local desktop.
Set up the hosting on CoffeeCup service and it all behaves like a Linked Table.
The What You See Is What You Get for Adaptive web pages is instant.
After buying the suite, was able to take several volunteer organizations that I serve on and update them. Look at this one on your Phone, on your phone sideways, on your Tablet, on your desktop with different resolutions.
It is all Adaptive.
The new version 2 that just came out is really nice!
While learning over Christmas to New Years Day, one of my files became corrupted. (the old version 1).
The only holiday the CoffeeCup team takes is that week. But, they left one guy there for emergencies. We sent a issue to them Christmas Eve. We got three interactive responses including a corrupted file rebuild well past midnight. The same for newbie questions over the break including New Year's Eve. No doubt in my mind... Best Support Team Ever award goes here.
I am sold. This product will make someone productive fast.
Oh, and it has the award for downloading any old website and upgrading it to CoffeeCup. It is like taking an old Word Perfect and converting it to Word.
Anyway, that is what i ended up with after spending many hours on WP. WP is OK, I just don't want to make a career of it.
