What process would handle this scenario best?
I'm working on a website with a large database of products. Data is in spreadsheet format. About 500 items.
I have a directory pages with html links to each little product page that I am building one at a time in regular html. It's taking forever to make 500 little html pages with Product Name, Description, Price, and a photo. And then the links I have now call up the little page into an iFrame.
I have looked at books, but none have an example of what I'm trying to do. If XML or something else is the answer, then I need a working example to see how to do it. Or maybe I can arrange an hour of training with a coder to see how to do it.
The site is an ecommerce site using PDG software for the shopping cart. We went WAY OVER on development hours because it took too long to build each of the individual sub-pages for the products. I think XML can do the job, but I need to see a working example of how to set it up. Any suggestions?
