Site for attracting and informing visitors to participate and about competition-based events

what would the format of the end-user experience be, including any platforms that may be incorporated, such as mobile, tablet, SMS, RSS, web browser, or email.
Thanks in advance!

Can you give us a bit more detail about what you are working on?
I don’t get the context of the question.

I have reworded topic, please check and add your feedback

Whatever do you mean???

My take is the question could be restated as:
“what are the ways the data could be consumed”

If I’m correct, I would first ensure the database is put together in a way that all of the information is there and “clean” so that it can be used in different ways.
eg. no blob fields with HTML tags in them.

Then I would work on getting responsive mobile-friendly pages put together.
This would remove (for the most part) the need to worry about what OS or device was used to access the site.

The RSS could get information from the database, put into RSS, and output it as RSS.

For email, I would do a type of opt-in newsletter that was sent out periodically.

As far as SMS, I don’t know, I’ve never done it, but AFAIK it’s fairly complex and may involve using a third party service.

I would also consider putting together an API so that others could get the (some) database information.

You are close when you said: [quote=“Mittineague, post:5, topic:247181”]

[/quote]. However, I just need to know how data should be shown…:wink:

Without knowing what the data is, it’s not really possible to say how it should be shown.

Can you clarify the context further?

You’re asking (I presume) about a website. What is it that you need to know? Are you asking how to structure the site? Are you asking about UX?

As ever, the more information you can provide, the more likely it is you’ll receive useful replies.

for example you can send SMS to a user when user successfuly completes form
or show data to use through API in XML format…or JSON…
or you can send email…

I’m still confused. That seems to be the question @Mittineague answered, but you said that wasn’t what you wanted; you wanted to know how the data should be shown.

Shown where, and to whom?

@TechnoBear I am OK

@Mittineague, technobear, cpradio, SamA74, etc
Please help me with this: Describe any integration points such as data feeds or administrative back-ends.

I don’t know if there is a simple, concise and complete answer.

As I posted, I think the primary concern is making sure the database is set up correctly.

How data is entered and how data is retrieved is up to you.

Once the database is in place you could use it to do any number of things. use the data in images, PDF files, widgets, apps, spread sheets, emails, web pages, CSV files, XML files, sql export files, JSON, etc. etc.

It isn’t a question of what can you do with it, but what do you want to do with it.

Thanks for your reply
