The functionality that IWP provides for my database is 99% ok.

However I need to use custom web publishing for the other 1% that is emailing.

Can I, and if so how can I, simply add some pages to FM's web solution - or do you have to re-create the whole thing?

Thanks

Emma

Hi, if you want to customise the built-in web publishing or add functions like inline actions and includes, then you need to go to custom web publishing. With Instant Web Publishing, you get what it offers and can't modify the built-in solutions.

Up until now, the advice had always been to use CDML, which is perhaps the easiest dynamic web page tool to learn as it's basically a set of tags, but FmPro 7 no longer supports it, so I guess the options are:

- Use CDML in v6, a relatively easy step up from IWP

- Use php for the database calls (if you did that you could make the case for using mySQL instead of FmPro anyway!)

- look at maybe XML with the new v7 server
