    Change content anytime without reinstalling application

    Hello,

    I’m creating a custom (dynamic) ASP dot Net ecommerce website and I would like to update the content (e.g. title tag, text, links, etc.) at any time. I do not want to have to modify code for these specific changes, reinstall the web app and then bounce the server each time I change content.

    As an example, lets say I have a Sony LCD and an image and link of this television on the television product page and I get notice that Sony is coming out with a new line of LCDs. I don’t want to have to manually change the page, recompile, and start and stop the server just to add the new line of LCDs (will be doing things like this when our SEO campaign changes on specific pages).


    In addition, once the information of the “new LCDs” are available to the website, I would hope the next time a visitor comes to the site, the “new LCDs” links and images show up. Meaning I would like this to be instantaneous.


    Also, for the available solutions I don’t want to affect performance of the web page load times.


    Should I create an in-house app that uses XML or can a CMS do this for me or is there a better solution?


    Thanks

    The term CMS rings in my head...
    I strictly don't know the .net world though, so I cannot say, but surely you'd better look that way.
    At least to implement such functionalities in your application.

    Firstly, CMS and XML aren't mutually exclusive. You could build/buy a CMS that uses XML to store the content.

    Try:
    Google searches for .net CMS

    Good luck

    A CMS should be all right but I am not able to suggest any for .NET as the ones I used are based on PHP.

    Still, a CMS has always (well, most of the time) be personalized for your particular needs. If you want to use a CMS with XML that's no problem. After all, XML is only a markup language, as HTML is.
