Developing Content Management Systems
Posted on 2005-04-26
I am currently working on a project in the area of content management systems. I would like to build in ASP or PHP or possibly ASP.net depending on what advantages there are.
I have not yet started the project ,still at the research stage, and I would like to explain my ideas so far and ask for you people to give me some feedback, so technically your not answering a question as such..
Basically I would like to develop a backend/admin area for a website where a non-technical user could add/update content on their site. It would be template driven and the user could add pages to the site using a selection of supplied templates as well as update/add content.
I then when on to think about the template system and why should the user be limited to just the supplied templates. So I am now thinking about some kind of Flash application along side the backend that allows the user to design via drag and drop elements, new templates.
Im guessing that this kinda thing has already been done numerous times before but it interests me and would make use of various web technologies.
This aside though the project requires an extensive amount of reasech before development can start. Also I would need to detail how such a system could be of use and why it should be developed.
Well thats it, I would be very grateful if you could give me some feedback on what I have mentioned above.
