I'm not very experienced at website design but managed to fumble my way through developing and managing a basic Dreamweaver website for a sports organisation (on a voluntary basis).
The organisation is keen now to upgrade the website to include:
* In context editing (so customer can easily edit webpages themselves)
* Database link with login for interested parties to register
* Email newsletter send to registered parties
Additionally, whilst only about 8 pages are ever updated, their website currently has about 70 pages, but most of them are simply 'archive' type pages with reports and photos from the past. These 'archive' pages increase by about 7 or 8 per year.
I've been researching for weeks and there is just so much out there my head is spinning!
Would I be best to find them an off-the-shelf product (which I would set up for them initially), or try to manage these functions with Dreamweaver extensions? (Some of the extensions look simple enough even for me to use! :-D )
To be honest I'd prefer to find them an off-the-shelf product, set it up for them then leave them to it - but because this organisation relies on grants they don't have much $$$, so they would be looking for something that would be a one-off cost with very little ongoing fees.
About 10 years ago I studied database design/management with SQL, aslo some VB and HTML so I do have some skills though very rusty and outdated!
I know there are many options out there, but if you were me, what specifically would YOU do?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Many thanks :-)
