Question

Database driven website

Dear All,

I want to know how website will be made/languages used with following requirements :

I am roughly 1000 Page Static Website. Each page contains 1 main heading, sub heading, content and 2-3 photos per page

along with the main template of the website. I had made it by making 1000 static pages and its hectic to maintain. I want a

website which should be like this :

1. I want to place all 1000 articles in txt OR doc OR rtf ... OR any format... in 1 folder.
2. 2000-3000 Photos in another folder. (2-3 Photos per page)
3. Now when anyone clicks any of the thousand links in main template, a PHP code or any server side language code should

pick up an article from txt file and images from 'photos folder' and make a page which includes article ,images placed at

proper place.

Now how can i do it ? What languages will be involved ? How it will be made ? Kindly help me out !

Not one CMS (content management system) does that.

In reply to: Database driven website

This means you have to create such a system. As to languages, almost any can do what you ask so the real question is what language do you work in?

I don't want to upset you but why would anyone create yet another CMS?

In reply to: Not one CMS (content management system) does that.

1. Is there a way that i make a template and leave blank the content area and photos area. When user click on any link eg XYZ then any script/code ( javascript/PHP........) grabs the content from txt file and photos from photos folder and combine in a new page mywebsite.com/xyz.html or mywebsite.com/xyz.php. In this way i will not need to make thousand pages manually.

2. If this is possible then will google add such pages in search engine ?

Sure

In reply to: Reframed Question

But then you'll have to create all that. It seems like a WCMS would make this happen without you having to create all the code.

And just to be sure we're clear. You are asking if this is possible and not for folk here to write this?

Basically i have a site of 1000 pages and i want to develop more but knowing that its too hectic i want an easy way out. I want to develop template,photos,content and do not want to develop all 1000 pages manually.

So what i need ? will WCMS do it for me ?

What you want is

In reply to: explanation

something like Wordpress. You get setup with it and then you do a one-time import of all your data. Once imported, you start adding content to Wordpress from within the interface.

I definitely don't recommend rendering pages from documents on the fly.

Answer
What's your server?

In reply to: Database driven website

If your server is Apache, learn PHP & MySQL.
WAMP is a good place to start. This gives you the basic tools, now all you have to do is learn how they work together.
