Bill, thanks again for sorting out my last problem. I have now purchased the deluxe version and have set it up and customized it to meet my needs. I am now in the testing stages. It work very well, exept the problem I have is this:-
The use of my directory is for job listings. The name of my first field and title for each listing above the description field is "Job title". When I try to enter a title such as " chef " if a listing is allready in the database with this title, which offcourse it would be as it is a chefs jobs listings page I get the reply " Multiple listing , allready exists ! How can I format my directory so that it will execpt multiple listings with the same title ? Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry about the late reply on this... we've been very busy this week:

uDirectory Deluxe requires that each listing has a unique value entered in the "Main Field".

Here are two suggestions to get around this:

OPTION 1: If you specify your listings with Main Field to be the "Job Title", then you would need to adapt some notation to make the Job Title unique. As an example, you could append some unique identifier on the Job Title like this:

Chef (Pos. 12345)
Chef (Pos. 12346)
Chef (Pos. 12347)

Or maybe just append the "need date" or "posting date" onto the Job Title like this:

Chef (04-05-2001)
Chef (06-01-2001)
Chef (06-08-2001)

(You get the idea.)

OPTION 2: As another option, you can configure your listings so that the "Main Field" is actually just a position identifier, such as "POS. 12345" or "POS 7573839". This would give you a way to specify a unique "Main Field" for each listing... and then you could use one of the other configurable fields (such as Field 1) as the actual "Job Title".

Note: Choosing option 2 would cause any of your current listings to get messed up. So don't choose that option if you have many listings that you don't want to re-do.
