[Pro] Help me brainstorm.

Hey guys, I need a little help. I just launched a new website for one of my clients a few weeks ago and his response has been so good that he’d like to add some additional projects to his portfolio, a lot of projects.

Although I’m getting paid for the work, I feel I would be doing my client a service by updating his website with a simple but robust CMS so he can do it himself or I can do it for him more cost effectively. Here’s the section: http://cardinalsurvey.com/projects.html

I’ll need the ability to modify the Recent Projects page, which I will need to make increasingly longer as we add projects or update it to include an editable CMS menu for each project category. I’ll also need to be able to edit and add new pages, which will contain text and images.

What do you think?

Can WebYep, Pulse and Perch do all of this and which is a better option for someone who is new to programming. I’ve seen the work Nathan has done with Perch and the New You Bootcamp website and I’m really impressed with his work, but I don’t want to use something that may be over my head.

Thanks!

Okay, I think I can do this with the Perch Pages options, but what I can’t figure out is how to handle the constantly expanding navigation system that’ll be required to reference each project, existing and newly formed, as well as how to setup project to project navigation.

Are you worried about the navigation element getting taller or wider than the rest of the page? Or what?

Yes, the navigation element getting taller, if I stay with the original design.

I haven’t looked at your design, but most pages can be built to be flexible-height. That is the dominant design model of the Web. Using the RPL Action or simply nesting your navigation within another element so it can grow while pulling the surrounding page taller will make this model work just fine in Freeway.

Yes, but I’m also using Showcase on the project pages which could be another problem.

  1. Because I think you have to remove RPL, and
  2. The user won’t be able to edit the Showcase file. I may have to replace Showcase with a Perch enabled gallery.

If you want a user editable gallery then it wont be a Showcase one.
