NOTE: Some details changed to protect competitive trade information.
We have a simple MS Access database with a table that lists specs on used cars. Each used car for sale has various pieces of information.
Generate a series of static .asp pages that "hard codes" information about the car into the web page.
The actual .asp code will be provided, i.e. the html will be provided into which the variables get merged to create the static web pages with hardcoded values.
The pages will be generated to a directory. One note here: if the car is domestic, it will go into a directory called "domestic". If the car is an import it will go into a directory called "import".
The files will be named based on a combination of field values and hardcoded text. Any spaces in the title will have to be replaced with a dash. For example "Honda Odessey" becomes "Honda-Odessey"
All variables should be user defined in an ini file or some such method. i.e. these values don't have to be maintained through the interface.
In addition to these car pages, index pages will have to be generated, starting at index.asp. These pages will have a hypertext link based on a combination of field values and hardcoded text. Below each of these hyperlinks will be a comments section. There can only be 75 links per page (and this number should be user defineable in an ini file or some such method).
Again, the underlying html code will be provided into which the variables are merged.
Because there can only be 75 links per page, there will be multiple of these files. At the bottom of each page will have to be links to all the index files generated.
In addition to each of these index pages, an xml file will be [url removed, login to view] is a google sitemap...a basic XML file with a series of URLs. An example of the structure of this simple XML file will be provided.
So basically, read data from a database, output files to given directories.
