A Novice wanting to do more than he knows
Posted on 2006-04-20
I will admit that I am a novice to web-pages etc...however, I want to start an intranet site at our company. I want it to only be accessible from the inside (or people who are connected with a local IP address over the VPN) (or if someone can ensure a secure way of doing it externally, that would be good too) Basically I want an intranet site that people can click on various links to bring up forms that are fillable on-line & then submit them...then, based on the criteria on the form, they are sent to that person's manager & anyone else interested. (for example, a new hire form would have a "Region" field, based on the region, when they hit submit, it would send to the regional manager). Another major thing that I want is the ability to host a company BLOG on this site (if that is possible).
So, here's what I am thinking: Windows 2003, use Frontpage 2003's templates & create it...is there any of this stuff that I cannot do with it...is there anything else that I would need.
Can anyone please give me some hints, ideas of software I would need & then any warnings etc.
Thanks! (remember, I am a novice, so the easier to understand, the better)
