  • Purpose: catalog item types - every item has one, but they are often all the same
  • Fields:
    • ID_Parent (int):
  1. REDIRECT Template:l/vc/table.ID of parent, if any
    • NameSng (string): word for single item of this type (e.g. "shirt","box")
    • NamePlr (string): word for multiple items of this type (e.g. "shirts","boxes")
    • Descr (string): longer name, e.g. "compact disc" instead of "CD". If blank, use NameSng.
      • Q: should this contain plural text? Or will we need DescrSng and DescrPlr?
    • Sort (string): sorting key (optional)
    • isType (flag): if TRUE, this type may be used for actual items; if not, it is a folder (type category)
