    Webmasters, have your say!

    I have one question for you, what would make creating and running a website easier for you? This could be in terms of adding/managing content, adding features to your website or tools to help you create/run a site

    Something that can quickly display what file includes what file eg. PHP Includes or whatsoever.

    On my own site I have a directory full of includes and sometimes I am getting quite confused

    I agree with Sketch. My own free graphics designer

    But seriously a good cms woould be great. But then again I would still write my own. And of course standards so when I code I don't have to worry about other older or newer browsers.

    More money. I'd like to buy a better internet connection, a better hosting account and better software. That would make it much easier for me as a webmaster.

    And more time.

    I'm with Apsen. 1 browser for all.

    I'd also like someone to teach me PHP, Java, SQL blah, blah, blah.

    the ability to use debit cards on the net, not just credit cards... i cant trust myself with one of those

    I also have to agree with aspen, but it will never happen, think back to the browser wars and you will see that we will never have 1 browser, it could only be MS that would win(for better or worse).

    And standardisation wont solve all the problems, sure the browsers will adhere to a common set of rules, but then you still have the problem of people not upgrading there browser, so you will still need to code for atleast 2 versions of the standards, the new and the old.

    I rather see all those languages disappear, you just make a site without worrying about coding problems or the different browsers. Like you're making/watching TV

    ahhh but even TV is not without its compatability problems... there`s Digital and Analog (atleast here there is), widescreen and normal and then you get into all the different encodings that countries have adopted both on analog and digital. Put a US video tape in a VHS that Doesnt support NTFS (US format) and it wont work. Do you record on DVD or do you stick with the more widely supported VHS cassett tape, and loose all the frilly features of the DVD?

    An army of trained monkeys, that do all the boring work for me (and clean up).

    Well, id be happy with just one aslong as he/she was a very good programmer. Not that I disgriminate against the other animals, monkeys just look like they could be the best typers. If dogs, cats or even elephants are up to the job I'd glady employ them.


    Seriously thought web standards across all the browsers would be a dream come true.

    Consider getting a debit visa card account. It's just like a regular savings account, except you can pay for transactions using the visa facility. St George Bank offer them, and Bendigo Bank do too. I am sure there are other Australian banks and credit unions which do also. I have a debit visa card account with St George Bank which I use soley for online transactions, and transfer only the bare minimum over to that account to cover whatever transaction I am about to perform online.

    you can check your links and get a report - not sure about fixing them though... hmm let me fine the url....

    http://www.sausagetools.com/professi...ebtoolkit.html

    Linkbot is the one... but need to re download it think I deleted it....

    basically inputting and running your site (on your server is fien) and it will print out a report of everything you need to know, ie broken links, images alt tags even I think, been a while... worth it though..

    What would make running my site easier? Having a CMS that automates a lot of the tasks I do manually in adding new content daily. I've gotten pretty efficient at creating new pages, but it'd be ideal to have it dynamically-driven.

    More money for promotion would be nice, as well.

    Thanks, Sarah.

    Hmm, I guess a "Link Fixer" would search for the text of the article that was linked. If it finds a match, it just automatically updates the url. So it basically hunts down the article and makes a new link. I suppose it would be a bot that would have to deal with server-side processes.

    Impossible but would be nice

    How about an application that could restructure any html page into any resolution and set the page to fit perfectly in the screen without any images getting messed up?

    They could call it the "super bombastic builder"...

    Just a thought
