I'm willing to give.....

Ok, i’ve had it a bit…
I’m looking at a programm ( no never changing it for my freeway pro…) called webplus, from serif.com
It costs 60 Pounds… and they offer…

the possibility to build a website with a secured login/password protected website…
( forum, guestbook etc)

now… i will give that 60 pound… ( hey, i make it 100 euro LOL) for the one who makes an action, that give’s me the same thing in Freeway Pro.

An action, that i would buy ( apart from the 100 euro) that i ( say like a forms to go thing) can put in my website…
give ( in a list…) numbers to… ( say like a xml file??? but then protected !!)

and so we Freeway users, can do that to!!!

I know… it’s a laugh, but i mean it. I’m @#$% at PHP… don’t understand it. The reason i started working on FW pro was my problem with numbers, digits and dyslectia so i have a big one on PHP.

So let please nobody be offended. I offer a challenge and give a ‘price’ for the person who come’s with the winning action.
Serious…
I’m sort of desperate…

and oh i think a lot of people would buy it…!

it’s an motivation call…

( with humor, but dead serious… in black on white!)

Look at your hosting provider rather than the software for this because every self respecting Web Host Provider provides all this and more on their servers for no additional cost.

Now there are many ways to integrate these things with FW - but nothing that has not been asked here before.

What particular feature(s) that they say they offer do you wish to implement?

When speaking to your provider there’s no reason they need to know you are on a Mac when you are talking about how to use their stuff. And if they give you guff about it, go somewhere else.

Hopefully Dave will help you out, and if it doesn’t work out, ask specific questions. You may also consider the friendly support of Have Host or David Owen, both Freeway-friendly web hosts you can find on this forum.

I’ve been looking at provider options for forums, etc. also but the problem I have with them (at least as far as I can tell with my provider, Hostmonster) is that you must use one of their templates and there does not appear to be any ability to modify them to look like the rest of your site. I don’t want a forum to look like it takes you to a different site.

Are there any options in this regard?

Thanks, Warner

What you need it to use a standard forum script, but get someone to
“skin” the forum for you (customise it), so it looks similar to the
style of your mail Freeway web site.

Guy’s i don’t need a forum :slight_smile: i need :

  • stock management
  • secured login ( that could be managed by cms preff. webyep)
  • yes, forum would be nice but is not ‘my’ special need. but i don’t see a reason it not beeing included.

Can’t we joing forces, i already put in 100 euro :wink: and persuade one of our great action writers to write THE action we need??
( it’s just a suggestion?)

Yes, I believe that this is a bit of the frustration that Eugenie was expressing in the original post. For us non-PHP, MySQL types it is difficult to work interactivity into our sites. I love FW for the way it allows me to easily build cool looking sites with many great action driven options, but web sites are a hobby for me and I don’t really want to pay someone to do part of it for me. It would be nice if there were an easier way to set up a forum and have it look like it was an integral part of the site.

It’s easier said than done. You can’t just write an action that makes a forum, nor can you write one that modifies something like phpBB or whatever forum software you might use to match the rest of the site. One has to go into the forum code and modify that by hand.

Setting up a secure or login area on a site that is truly secure (and not just a simple password protected area that’s easily bypassed; there’s already an action for that) requires server configuration.

There is another option, however. If your server supports PHP, you can try my PHP HTTP Authentication Action. You should be able to use it without doing any PHP, but you will need to put the PHP Include Pages Action on each page you want to be “secured.” You can find them both with basic directions here

If you want to pay me 100 euro for them, feel free. :wink:

Not just that. It is my living ( even iff it is a very small thing for me and i’m more a graphic designer than web )
I don’t mind having somebody to come and help me with the external thing for one time, as long as it’s on a learning base. And i could do it myself the next time.

Problem is; here in the Netherlands i would not know where to find someone like that!!
And also, for a lot ( i want to be very carefull, because a i realy had help from very nice guy’s to!!) a lot of people you as help from in the Mac communictie in the Netherlands have the Aditute, to say;

Ok, let me do your website for you, i will charge … and take your client from you… iff you can’t handle it, your no “pro” so you don’t deserve it…
Even the fact, you use a programm like ( or should i say; the fact that one uses a programm like Freeway) is here a 'oh, you no “pro” attitude…
So… little help from that side!

( or am i beeing to cryptic again?)

What i learned from Freeway, i learned here. I was helped with files, text, links, and a lot of kindness and patients!!!

So when i have to “UP” my price… i will…

As far as I can see is this ‘Webplus’ program not for MacOSX.
Personally I get very suspicious if some software company promises ‘everything’ for little money. There is no such thing as a free lunch. One has to pay in the end. There are security issues for instance. Are you sure this ‘cheap’ software does it’s job well? I would not take that risk with a website. Any, personal or not.
If you want to integrate dynamic parts in a FW based website, like a shop, forum, password protected folders etc. then you must learn how to do that. By reading instructions, asking here on this list, or by reading a book. If you can not, for some reason, then ask someone else to do the work for you. You’ll find here a bunch of very nice, very capable professionals who are too happy to do this. I’m sure for a reasonable price too.

Atelier, i don’t want any work to be done for me. I want to learn how to do it myself!
And i would be very eager to do that in the best way i can.

And yes you are very right, a cheap sollution like that webplus program is a bit … fishy… but it does offer it all.

:slight_smile:

Joe, i get back to you! i have to read and learn ( hopefully not weap!)

Just because it is cheap doesn’t mean it isn’t kosher. It is
published by Serif, a long-established provider of cheap ‘n’
cheerful, non-fishy but non-professional software.

If this was a Mac program I’d suggest building part of your site with
this and making links into it from the Freeway site; that would be
the simplest ‘here & now’ solution by far. However, this is a Windows
app. You’d need a PC to run it.

I’m sorry… i do apologise for the remark. It was a bad chosen one! And perhaps out of jelousy because there is so much for pc out there. it was more in general than directly to this company and you are right! Sorry!

A pc is no problem to get a hold of. i should have to think that one over. no idea how i could make those 2 work together… its a ( in theory i think ) good idea!

Don’t feel you need to apologise, it was a reasonable assumption.
However, it is also worth keeping an open mind about this sort of
thing.

Open Source is as cheap as things come, and it is at the heart of
more than most people realise. For example, Apache is open source,
and as of March this year it serves 45% of the web. (And 66% of the
top million busiest sites!)

There is a lot more software out there for Windows. But take heart; a
major portion of that is utter junk, and a sizable portion of what’s
left is nothing to write home about.

Just make your graphics and page structure in Freeway then take the
graphics that are output and rebuild the page design in the other
app. It almost certainly will require web-ready JPEGs and GIFs, which
is why you’ll find it simpler to publish from Freeway and then take
the graphics from the Site Folder.

Eus,

I think what you are looking for is a shopping cart script? To manage
orders, client login to view orders, Your client to Manage Stock
levels, and a payment system.

You will need to use one of the Shopping Cart scripts like the (Free)
OSCommerce for example. You’re not going to be able to put these
scripts in Freeway. You will need to style them ( or purchase pre-
designed templates). You could design a front end Freeway web site
for your client that leads into the shop like so… http://
www.yourclient.com/shop

Shopping Carts can be a bit scary to set up for the beginner, but
once done will open the world of web design up to you as you realise
and understand how these scripts are put together, and in turn gives
you better understanding of how Freeway works and the possibilities
of what it can do. The code world ends up not looking quite as
fearful again.

If you think you’re up to it, then Its worth investing the time
especially if your client is pushing your knowledge path, and willing
to pay you for it. And your client will probably need you to maintain
the shop for him into the future. Your skill set will grow
appropriately.

There’s a OSCommerce example a Fellow Freeway has done in our web
gallery here : I Need Web Hosting Mac friendly web hosting and domain registration
