    It still needs some work but this is one of the sites I am going to use a reference site in a job interview.

    It is not finished yet and I need to correct any spelling errors etc but the coding is all done. The only bit that isn't complete is the articles section, the articles database content system works fine though.

    Good job, looks professional.

    Works fully in Mozilla too, an increasing rarity for personal sites it seems.

    Yeah thanks. I designed it to work with Mozilla too, I tested it in Firebird it worked fine apart from the usualy centered table bug. Even the BBC site does that though.

    It should be good when its all done.

    It looks nice - you may want to add some more human error messages though - for example typing in a catagory which dosn't exist brings up

    Code:
    ADODB.Recordset error '800a0bb9'
    
    Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another.
    
    /shop/products.asp, line 111
    You could check for these errors and print something more readable.

    Yeah the shops not finished yet, I still need to do a lot of work on that. The basic engine works though. How would I do an error message? Just somthing like?

    In the if statememnt thats tell the database what table to open I haven't added an ELSE statement. I will just add do somthing like

    Else
    Response.write "The catorgory you selected does not exist please try again"
    END IF

    Hopefully that will work. I will try it tomorrow as I am going out tonight in theory.

    It would depend exactly how your database works - if it is supposed to return a bunch of records for a catogoryid and you type in one which dosn't exist something like

    if objRS.Eof then response.redirect "error.htm"

    I've noticed a mistake:

    on http://www.robertson-i.co.uk/portfolio.asp
    Robertson HIFI

    This site was made as apart of a university assignment and although fully functional it is not a real shopping site. The site includes a shopping basket and also had the ability for admin staff to update/delete and add records to the central database via web forms.

    The site is coded in ASP with SQL statements used to manipulate database records. At the time of writing work still has not finished on this site but completion date is expected to be around mid Janaury 2003
    Don't you mean January 2004?

    and why the empty 3rd table row?

    If you're going to use Response.Redirect, remember to ensure you set Response.Buffer = True at the top of the page.

    I thought that the golden rule in creating a site was to never EVER EVER say under construction. Don't ask me why, this is something my IT teacher told me.

    Yes, he hasn't spell checked it or anything yet.

    Good point - I usually do all my ASP before outputting any HTML so didn't think to mention it.
