Hi all, donít know whether anyone can help me on a web design problem I haveÖ I have created a table http://www.monkeybrunt.co.uk/table and what I need it to do is for the content to show in the table but linked from a separate page. i.e. pull the details from the page itís linking too. So the table doesnít have to be edited as well as the separate page.

The next task is for the table to organize itself in numerical order according to price.

It basically has to be a self sufficient table updating itself according to the content on the pages itís linking too.

Any ideas / help would be greatly appreciated

Regards O_J

From your page and what you described, one way you'll be able to do that is if you have three files(it will require some scripting):

1. A file containing all the data. That is the property description, location, price, and location of the photo for each house.
2. A script that will display all of your listings based on your data file. It would pull all the data from the file and display it in the way you specify.
3. A script that will dispay all the data for 1 specific house when it is selected by your visitor.

It's not too difficult to do, but if you'd like, there's an open source program that you can use to do that if your server supports php. There's a full description of how to install it once you download it. Its available at http://open-realty.com,
