Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    XML vs Array

    Right now I'm using XML with ASP for all of the navigation of a site, as it includes brand names, categories and holds other information about each brand.

    Now, I have a couple of smaller data, less than 50 listings for each (but could grow, but I don't think it'll grow by hundreds), that needs to be used if not in all pages, but most pages of the website.

    I was wondering, if it's better to have these in XML as well, or would take up less time to process if they were merely arrays declared and included files where needed?

    well, it would be faster to just use arrays. but from a maintenance perspective, i would definitely go the XML route.

    thanks

    I guess having the XML route would be adding another step into the process, but I guess it wouldn't slow it down too much.

    It would be nice if in the future I can just add a web form to add to the records.
