I understand this requires a MySQL database and third-party

Post by etcbbu » Wed Jul 18, 2018 4:55 pm

Hi all, I know that this is something that requires a (MySQL) database, and script(s) to query a database in order to execute it, or whatnot. But what I wanted to ask is if there are any WB-users, here, who have signed up for or use some sort of third-party application to build and upload a sort of list of items likr this:

https://www.missiongolfcars.com/default ... ake=e-z-go

And then sort of implement it with their WB project? I'm open to either the fact that I'd have to sign up for some sort of third=party application that then is on a different URL; or, what my ideal would be, signing up for and utilizing some sort of third-party application that could allow mt o build a thing like the above-link, and then I get sort of a text/HTML snippets that could be objects I could use the "HTML Object" within my Wb work-space to embed it into my page I build with WB.

Anyone have any ideas or know of a piece of third-party software that would allow me t configure/make something like this: https://www.missiongolfcars.com/default ... ake=e-z-go

The main thing that's the main functionality I like and need to be able to do are the way that there are the various fields like "Vehicle Type", "Year", "Brand", and that as the user picks options from the drop-down box, that the correct Golf Cart(s) load.

Like I say, I know it requires a database and scripts that query it that are apart from WB, but I wanted to see what maybe my fellow WB'ers have found that could execute something like this.

Would something like this possibly work? I have used their scripts before and they are easy to incorporate into WB.

crispy68, thanks so much! I am about to get in touch with their support to ask some questions! Thank you! And let me ask you--when you say it was easy to use with WB--how was it that you embedded it into your WB page? Or did you not? Did you just, like, install in on a sub-folder of your web-space, and then when you had a link on your main, primary WB-created website, you just put in a hyperlink to this thing that you had installed on a sub-folder or something?

Were these the steps you used to actually place it on a WB-page? https://www.thecartshed.com/scrn1.png

They offer 2 licenses: User and Developer. I would personally spend the money to get the Developers license as you will more control over things. You can also use the scripts on more than 1 project.

You will be provided a zip folder with all the files and you will upload this to your server. I usually create a folder on the server to put the script. You then install the script and create the database. You then log into the backend to add your info. To make it work, you simply add the code it generates and put it into a html code object. Sometimes there is some additional code you may have to add in other sections but it tells you where to put it. You may have to publish the page as .php also.

I use their shopping cart here: https://www.webbuildertemplates.com
click on the shopping cart to see the cart.

yes
So with these, does that mean it's just three different HTML boxes? I am trying to use this live test demo to show up on a real-page I have on real-project, and I'm not seeming to have much luck having it integrate onto my site and actually show up, live..?

Whenever it gives me the instructions like:

"Step 1. Copy and paste the code below at the very top of your .php page. It should be line 1 of your .php web page." - I assume that meant to go to "Page HTML" >> "Start of Page" tab, and paste what they have in that first window of https://www.thecartshed.com/scrn1.png ,

Whenever it gives me the instruction like:

"Step 2. Copy and paste the code below into your html code, where the cars listing will be displayed." - I am trying to put that code into an HTML Textbox Object in WB, in the spot on my page where I want the applet to load, but no matter how I keep trying to set the "Type" parameter on this HTML box, I am not seeming to be able to get this to load on my site, live.

Whenever it gives me the instruction like:

"Step 3. Copy and paste the code below at the very bottom of your .php web page after all the other code." - I assume that meant to go to "Page HTML" >> "End of Page" tab, and paste what they have in that fourth window of https://www.thecartshed.com/scrn1.png ,

And I am just leaving out that one that says "Step 2a (Optional)", so I'm not doing anything with that.

Just trying to figure out how I would integrate this into my WB project, within my .WBS file..?

"Step 1. Copy and paste the code below at the very top of your .php page. It should be line 1 of your .php web page." - I assume that meant to go to "Page HTML" >> "Start of Page" tab,
yes, this is correct.
Step 2. Copy and paste the code below into your html code, where the cars listing will be displayed." - I am trying to put that code into an HTML Textbox Object in WB, in the spot on my page where I want the applet to load, but no matter how I keep trying to set the "Type" parameter on this HTML box, I am not seeming to be able to get this to load on my site, live.
The code that is provided is relative to where you have the script installed on the server. So trying to add there demo into your page wont work.
Step 3. Copy and paste the code below at the very bottom of your .php web page after all the other code." - I assume that meant to go to "Page HTML" >> "End of Page" tab,
yes, this is correct.

If you like what you see and it works as you want it, trust me, it is not difficult to set up and build your page around it. They will also add additional functionality to the script to your liking for additional fees.

Thanks so much for the insight, crispy68, I appreciate it a lot. I really want to use this, but I need a few more fields added to it than what they offer, so I am trying to ask them what they would charge to edit their own code and add some more fields onto it, before we use it..
