Hi.. I have read this topic.. on that page.. 

I wish to know if anyone has done this before.. 

I would like to get their feed back on how effective it has work.. as well
as a working example..

Does this also mean that each item ended, one will have to set what flypage
to use ?(dumb quesito.. but I want to make sure)

Thanks a mil guys..


Ps what about the admin GUI where I have to enter data into... how can I
split that up for the different product categories... ?

You could code two completely different layouts into one flypage.html
but what would happen, in the future, when you decide that you want
three types of layout (perhaps a new one for grandfather clocks)?  The
code could become very difficult to maintain after a while.

A cleaner solution be to use a different flypage for each product type.
See the "PageSelectField" configuration directive:
