Hi all,

Using VP-ASP PLUS 6.50.3 (and enjoying it).

There is a built-in Content page called "News". I can add news items to it, but can't make it appear anywhere.

Any ideas? I'd ideally like it as a panel on the side of the home page :)

Thanks

these built in pages are accessed from the URL: shopcontent.asp?type=news -- so to pull in this information you would create a link on your site in your navigation that would look like this: http://www.yoursite.com/shopcontent.asp?type=news and that would bring up whatever you have entered.

We used these "standard" type pages for our policies, etc and they are easy to manage this way. Hope that works for you1

I've been using VPASP for years, and never realized this existed. It's great, flexible, and I can think of all kinds of places where I'll use it. The message boxes hold more text (using SQL2000) than standard product fields. This helps my particular situation a lot!
