web page design issue

Hello,

What is the best way that I can create certain sections of my web pages that the user cannot change but allow them to change other parts to personalize it more for their departments?

In other words the basic design cannot be changed just a small section of the page they could put special items of interest in.

How do I control them not effecting what I have already done?

thanks in advance,

Don

Do you have a CMS (content management system) setup. Users should not be able to change anypart of your website unless you explicitly code to allow this.

One example of allowing simple interface changes can be seen here -> www.simplebits.com (look at the 3 blocks of color on the top right) this is done using CSS (cascading style sheets). You could have different stylesheets for different departments etc.

Just use an iframe.  Then they can do content on the page that is the source of the iframe and it will contained and contrained so it does not affect the other content on the pages.

Hi Cd&,

I guess I do not know what an iframe is.

Do they work in multiple browsers. Would they work in conjunction with the menu system you helped me with?

Is this something simple that a user could use a tool or package to maintain it?

Need to do some research on this one.

Let's start with a couple of links then.  These should hep you get an understanding of iframes, and they explain them better than I can:

Hi Cd&,

The sites are great and very informative.

I like how I could let the user create their own personal page and just insert it between the tags.

So the big picture would look like my logos and stuff at the top followed by our menu system and then the insert for the iframe page, concluding with the css for my bottom navigation and back button support.

right?
