View Full Version : A Portal?`

Ok, Just a survey type thing (yet another)..
Who'd be interested in a portal type thing, you know a pre-made website where you just have to use the admin tool to make basic changes or add pages without having to html code.

Just wondering because I may make one. I see a lot of places (ASP) now offer them so I thought I might hop on the band wagon in a sense.

funny you mention that...

I have been looking for one and have come accross a few.... none of them do exactly what I wanted and some looked really tacky.

I wanted to add a section to my site which dealt with local bands(events, reviews, forum etc etc.)

Problem is, that most of them I found are not very customisable to suit your exact needs. Furthermore, when adding pages you had to use html!!

This would normally be okay, but the section would be maintained by a local and not myself!!And the local needs basic text features and not html!!

Let me know if you do ever do one!!

Well I'm on holidays now for 6 weeks so if you'd like me to whip up a custom job I'd be more than happy to for free.

I will speak to my chappy and find out what he need etc.

The band thing is more his baby and I havent got a full idea of what he wants to include. All I do know is he wants to add reveiws, message board and 'gig guide'/calendar etc

Will get back to you when he gets back to me!!
