    Question What web design platform or software can I use to design websites like iGoogle or My

    What web design platform or software can I use to design websites like iGoogle or My Yahoo?

    What web design platform or software can I use to design websites like iGoogle or My Yahoo i.e. websites (e.g.homepage) that can be modular in design and blocks can be moved around or replaced by the user? The user has a choice of modules to add to homepage and decides what to add or remove on their web page?

    Hi Ronald, you will want to look at Javascript frameworks such as jQuery and Mootools.
    They can make your modules move, placed, removed and reordered.
    You would need to write the backend code using something like Dreamweaver, Textmate or a IDE of your choice.

    Have a look at the BBC.co.uk site as a great example of it in use. View the source and have a look at how they have done it and learn from that!
