Hello everyone
by the past i created a couple websites using web creator pro 4. Now i would like to create a website that looks like http://www.max-tetelin.com/fr/subcategory/235/commodes which has a quit nice layout and presentation for products. When you clic on a picture it goes to an other page and there it has a cool effects with the pictures.
My question is how could i automaticly generate those pages from a form that i could fill out over the internet and also what kind of programming should i use.
On my computer i have Dreamweaver, Microsoft exprression and web creator pro 4.
Hope someone will answer. Joris

The editing software you’re looking for is a web content management system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_content_management_system). One system I can recommend is CMS Made Simple (http://cmsmadesimple.org/) and also Concrete5 (http://www.concrete5.org/) looks promising. The more popular ones are Joomla (http://www.joomla.org/) and Drupal (http://drupal.org/), among others. You can test all these and many more before installing any of them yourself on http://php.opensourcecms.com/scripts/show.php?catid=1&cat=CMS%20/%20Portals.

As to the image gallery example you showed, this is done with JavaScript, namely Slimbox (http://digitalia.be/software/slimbox) (as it looks like from view their source code).

Oh, and P. S.: You won’t get around learning some HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP, at least the basics of the latter two.
