I need some help i have a friend who has asked me if i can create a website that allows them to upload their own images and text at their leisure.
His company is in the car sales trade so they need to regularly be updating their stock, and this needs to be done by somebody with limited computer knowledge so ease of use is fairly important.
I am using dreamweaver cs4 on a G5 Imac running Snow leopard 10.6.8, my skills are limited to creating uncomplicated websites but i am very keen to learn, i am aware of content management systems such as Druplal but have zero knowledge on how to use these.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
I'm sure that there are open-source systems specifically for the automobile sales industry (just don't know of any). One of those would be your best bet - but they will be quite a challenge for you (as would any CMS) if you have no experience with building dynamic pages/sites or with handling database-driven pages. Either way, that would surely be the best way to go....
i appreciate this is a hard challenge for me but i am willing and keen to learn i am reading every bit of information i can find on the subject to further my knowledge, i just needed to know that i am looking in the right direction.
i've messed around with mysql and php in the past, so im aware of the task ahead of me.
Are there any links you can advise to me to read about learning to build dynamic pages/sites or handling database-driven pages.
thanks for the reply
You can take a read here
Although putting together a form that would upload images and all the descriptions required seems like a fairly straghtforward project, depending on your current skill set.
