Updating Website ASP

Discussion in 'C#' started by mmiksik, Apr 23, 2008.

  1. #1
    I am working on a website, whole site is hardcoded in XHTML, but the client wants to update one page himself. Is there an easy way of doing it in ASP (or .Net)?
    Because he wants to be updating just one page himself (just adding text, possibly images) and the budget doesn't allow much, I don't really want to go into complicated stuff. I am looking for a simple solution.
    Is there any free CMS I could use? Or any other way?
    Thanks a lot guys.

    Could try the free, 30 day trial of Microsoft Expression Web or the totally free Microsoft Visual Web Developer.

    Not a whole lot of free ASP CMS options, but there are lots of free PHP options (droopal, wordpress, etc.) Can you just switch hosts to a different server and run one of them?

    Tend to agree with itcn. If you don't have to stick with ASP there are lots more free options.

    It sounds like there's a very simple solution to this...

    Where the client wants to be able to update the content, put in an SHTML include (or ASP include) to a hidden file...

    Then add an admin section that allows the client to be able to edit that one file...

    You can install PHP on windows. It's pretty easy.

    Install a phpupload or aspupload script and let him upload the updated page, I guess that would be the simpliest method.

    All you need is the CMS.. With which updating the contents will be easy!! Editing the file directly by the end user who is not well versed with the prog language is not advisable.

    DT Centrepiece 4 is a free ASP-based CMS, and will run natively on an MS Windows server. It's easy to use and understand, and it doesn't take long to set up. I could set it up on your server for you for free, if you like.
