    Any Ideas for the new site?

    Hi All,

    I'm going to start working on one community website on which I have to show approximately 200 member's history with details for their achievements and what they have done for the community. Now I'm kind of confused about how should I present it? Should I use java applet to cover all those articles about members?

    Also, I have to show their pictures as well so articles will have pictures and individual member's details.

    Do you think I should consider content management? Or should I just design it with regular design?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    don't use a java applet - many pc's dont have a java virtual machine to run java so its a bad idea... plus its far too cumbersome.

    you should DEFINITELY use some sort of content management system and a server-side scripting language like ASP or PHP.
    Send me a PM if you need any more info!

    good luck!

    Agreed with kish. Use something like PHP or ASP and a database to manage all of your users and content.

    I would say PHP since it seems to be a popular choice because it and MYSQL are both free technologies. Might have to pay extra with a host for ASP or CF.

    I would whip up a template for profiles and use PHP to call up the picture and the article on the person. This will also save you from linking all the names of said 200 some individuals AND allow you to search, all from one fun little (or big) database

    Agrees with all previous replies. I personally have managed to con my boss into springing for the books

    hehe, I just use them as a tax write off since they are "business" purchases. Works if you are a independant contractor.
