Best programming language for ecommerce web site
Posted on 2003-03-21
I have to build a website
I work with macintosh
I use a database (maybe filemaker)
I do not have my own server (just rent space with my provider)
I dont have a lot of experience with web (i am a prepress director)
I like to have (later) the possibility to install shopping cart and credit card transation
So here is the story, I have about 50 produit to sell (posters), i have picture of them, format, color, price, quatity, dealer rebate...and so on. I will or have put that all that in a database, to make it manageble..... when there will be 5000 item (later) it would make my life easier to manage.
First question, -- Best software to make the webpage to display the product catalog --
try to be as fast as you can build it, and make all the page look the same (stylesheet)
be easyer to chage all the page (if i like) to make cosmetic update (color and font)
i one year, if i like to incorporate the shopping cart, i like to just said, add this link to all the page, and that done !
I have check dreamweaver and golive.... any suggestion, who is the best... maybe another one
Wich program allow me to make a webpage (template) that populate with the spec in the database ????
I know that it is a lot of question, but all with the same goal, build a really neat, simple web site (first) , but with the possibility to make it huge and transactional (later) without haing to hardcode everything page by page, and by choosing the best program to do it simple, and continue with that program to make it complicated... understand ???..
