i have been asked to develop a website either in php or in one of java
techonologies ( struts or jsp) the very important point in this site
is that it has the following features...
1)the will be used for any purpose ( i mean still now there is no
specification for the purpose of this project ) it may be news site or
university site ... or something else
2)the administrator of the site will not be having the knowledge of
computer languages which means that he is not well known with html or
css or php or java technolgies so we have to provide him with all the
functions so that he should be able to manage the site without calling
2)the administrator of the site will be having the rights to create
new templates , those new templates are a series of wizards to follow
in which the administrator can select new things like ( background of
the site , font type , advertisement photos direction ( right or
left ),.... ), so once the administrator finished the creation of the
template , he can view it and save it existing templates...
the administrator will be having the rights to edit and change those
3) the templates made by the administrator will be available for the
users to be used ( but not to be edited or deleted).
4)each end user will be having account ( user name and password)
5) there will be default template which will be apply to the website
for whole the users as default template ( take example the background
is green , font type is arial ....)
6)both the administrator and the end user will be having the rights to
change the default template of the website into one of the existing
templates (templates which made by the administrator)
but note that , the the administrator can login and change the defualt
template to tempalate no 2 so the website will viewed for him using
template2 and at the same time it might be the end user 1 will be
login but he can apply template no 5 so a the same time they are using
the website and for both of them they are using different templates.
7) the end user will be having the rights to made his own template
( so he can do exactly like what the the administrator did in step 2)
but the difference is only that the template made by the end user will
be available only to the end user who created the template and for the
administrator of the site but it will not be available for other end
the end user can also have the rights to edit/delete the template
( but as we said only his own templates)
8)so if the end user want to change the default template of the site ,
he can have one of the following choices
a) either to select one of the existing templates made by the
b) he can create his own template and save to the system and then
apply it to the website
9) the administrator of the site will be having the rights to edit/
delete all the kind of the templates ( either created by himself or
by end users ).
my question is
1)i need it urgently how i can implement that , i thought to make the
templates inside css so that each template will be stored separetly in
css sheet , but how about the editing of the template i will not be
able to read the contents of the css and then update it again
2) how the administrator will manage the templates
3)is there any API (AJAX API, jsf or java based API) to apply the
templates to the website and is there any API to manage the templates
of the site . is it possible to do it in java script ( like what is implementing in igoogle and googlepages where the user can move the frames and banners as he wants)
please reply me i need it urgently
Hi thanks for your reply ,
but have read from the internet that we can manage the template using css and java script , but i dont know how?????
1) Native. It can be used for any purpose whatsoever.
2) Native. It requires little to no technical knowledge to set up and even less to update and use.
4) Native+some extentions
7) Possibly in some extensions, may require you to make your own
8) See above
All of the above features are mainly based on my experience with Joomla. There are other CMSes, such as Wordpess, Drupal, etc. The alternative to using a CMS would be basically creating your own.
