rebuilding  

Hi,
Just a question, or 2 -why do we have to rebuild the database? Also, is there a way to see just the running auctions and file the closed ones so I don't have to scroll through a big list?
Many thanks

Maisey,

Yes you have to rebuild your database. All database programs have to be rebuilt periodically. And the time frame between rebuilds depends on how much data manipulation is done.

QuickBooks has a rebuild utility. Quicken, Personal mailing list, my email management software must be rebuilt. It just goes with the maintenance of a database software.

Now to hide your auctions--Sure can--no problem.

Go to the Auction lots tab. Click on "Show/Hide" records. That is the two yellow hands covering the piece of paper on the toolbar. When you click Show/hide records all the filter options are displayed. Select the profile you want and uncheck everything but the Online auctions. We use "Show/Hide" records everyday I bet a hundred times a day in order to more quickly locate records.

just remember to change the setting back to show all records before you shut down AW2000. Otherwise, you are likely to forget you changed it and then you will go looking for an Auction lot only to get a "No record found" message and go into a panic.

Ask me how I know

Maisey,

Well Sleepless in Seattle,, this is sleepless in Kansas (because my hubby is snoring--loudly--again So let's talk thumbnail templates

Yes thumbnail templates can be uploaded to your own website. All you have to do is add the hyperlink on whatever page you want the link on. After you list you go to "Tools | update websites. And AW2000 will upload everything you have Queued to go to whateve website. In AW2000 they are called "Auction Wizard generate websites". You can configure as many as you want. What auction lots are uploaded depend on if you tell AW2000 to add them when you are queueing auction lots for listing.

When you Queue an Auction lot for listing, there are two options available. One is "When online include in website" the other option is "When queued for listing include in website". That drop down box will contain whatever AW2000 websites you configure. I have a Boyd's bears. A building supply, etc etc etc. You can take a look at my company website. All the hyperlinks take you to AW2K generated websites. And getting the URL for the hyperlinks is super easy as AW2K writes it for you. All you have to do is copy and paste it into the HTML code of your website behind the <a href> Front Page and Dream Weaver both will write hyperlinks for you.

The thumbnail templates can be edited just like the Listing templates. Same rules apply... and be sure to duplicate before starting to edit. My thumbnail templates were edited to match my Listing templates. So if you don't like the color, no worries, they can be changed.

Let me know if that helps or not.
