    Hi Steve and thanks for posting

    Everyone, please take a look at the information Steve has brought and is asking for input about. This is not the normal review.

    Rather, there are so many times when directories are needed that it would be good to nail the darn thing.

    Also Macromedia is one of the most consistent and frequent posters in this forum (Website Reviews). His many reviews are certainly welcome by myself.

    Lets all give this request a shot!

    peace

    Hi Macromedia

    I have a neighborhood site and am constantly running to get it right.

    Categories are a problem for me. I will be modifying the following list but this is pretty much it for now.

    Education
    PreSchool Public Elementary Public Middle School Public High School San Francisco Community College Parocial Elementary Parocial Middle School Parocial High School Private Elementary Private Middle School Private High School

    Prepared Food
    Coffee Prepared Doughnuts Juice Bar Home Cooking Tea Room Bagel Shop Cafe Chinese German Italian Japanese Korean Mexican Middle Eastern Pizza Thai Deli-/-Cheese Hamburger Dessert Ice Cream Tavern

    Financial and Legal Needs
    Real Estate Mortgage Insurance Notary Accountant Tax Service Attorney Land Use Attorney Bank Full Service Bank Money Machine

    Lifestyle
    Liquor Wine Beer Book Seller Florist Video Rental / Purchase CD Buy Sell Trade

    Health and Fitness
    Family Practice Pediatrics Optometry Dental Pharmacy Acupuncture Holistic Health Chiropractic Massage Nutrition Yoga Natural Body Care Health Spa Psychotherapy

    Physical Fitness

    Shoe Repair

    Travel & Lodging
    Travel Lodging Bed&Breakfast

    Computers

    Home Decorations

    Home Improvement
    Architecture Planning Interior Design Hardwood Floors Rugs Picture Framing Hardware Locksmith Landscaping Live Plants

    Markets
    Market - Meat Market - Organic Market - Neighborhood Market-Super Bakery

    Religion
    Catholic Protestant Moslem Jewish

    Pets
    Animal Shelters Pet Supplies Veterinarians

    some of the above have no application to your planned process but.............might.

    I will be changing this very soon to a method similar to this:

    I will be allowing entertainment folks to get a pw/userid and use it to post entertainment events. When they post, they will provide a category (Jazz, Piano Recital, etc) and this can be with a previous category or they can customize their own. Then when a call is made to entertainment, the sql is searched, cats are listed and counted. Then one is selected and the events in that category tumble out.

    peace
