    Question Wich Format???



    Okay i have a huge project, but im not sure wich format to go with (ie dreamweaver, joomla etc etc? It is a "sale" website, to wich people will need to be able to input their own horses.

    Similar to this site www.horseyard.com.au but will be for racehorses only. How do i go about this? I have not attempted anything like this before, just basic buisness websites for my friends stud and mechanic business etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure what you mean by "which format". Dreamweaver, Joomla, etc. are not formats.

    Sorry. I mean which program would be easier to create the site considering i am going to need a lot of user friendly entry box/forms so they can enter their horse deatils, and then have the catergories all match up in searches on the site.

    well, your going to need a database like MySQL and then to learn about normalisation and databse structures.

    you are going to need php or perl for example, to query the db to input and extract data from it and dynamically, to build your pages.

    then your going to need some form of html to present that data in a web page.

    then your going to need css for the presentational aspects of your pages.

    You'll also need to know about sessions and web/server security and encryption (of passwords).

    So, you are correct. It is a huge project so you'll need some time to plan it, design it, built it and to test it.

    I don't mean to put you off by setting out all you'll need. Good luck and keep asking questions.

    Thanks Bazz. If i google then im sure some tutorials will come in learning some of those?

    What supports MySql if i may ask? I know my hosting supports it, so thats good, but is there a component that i can add to Dreaweaver or something?

    The two programs I know of which work with MySQL are phpMyAdmin and heidisql. the latter is a desktop based program whereas phpMyAdmin is web based.

    I don't use dreamweaver so I can't help with that one.

    Look at using Joomla or Drupal ... both would be good systems to use
    and have good online support for examples and help.
