    Webdirect

      We develop websites in php with My and MS SQL DB solutions and connect via ODBC/ESS with FM. With the new Webdirect feature does someone expect that we can forget the PHP & SQL combination which can be replaced with FM via Webdirect. If it will be a huge timesaver.

          No.

          Read up on WebDirect especially what is supported and what is ot.  Doing custom web publishing as you are doing is infinitely more customizable.

            But can it be used for a limited website meaning is it for instance possible to have a url other than /fmi and will it found on google, can you see it without login etc, etc. I understand that there are limitations. Finally do you think FM will go that way.

              No and no. You still need to login, even if it's the Guest login. I don't know if Google indexes such sites.

               

              If you've already got PHP and mySQL running, why not drop filemaker??
