    one page website maintenance Link to this post

    Hi all,

    I am promoting a single page which deals with Best cricket bats.

    However I am very new to webtechnology and CMS. That is reason I am not sure if I should go for any CMS.
    Can anybody suggest me if small websites should go for a CMS or it should run stand alone?

    Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Mark.

    Hi Marc

    I think using a CMS is a no-brainer - 1 page or 1000's of pages. I see you are already using Wordpress - which is good in the sense you have started with a CMS. Whether you need to consider SS or not depends on where your 1 page site needs to go. If it is just a social thing - in my opinion - Wordpress or Drupal will do fine.

    However if you are looking to push the boundaries and are trying to support multiple authors, multiple content types. mashup stuff - like maps, videos, image, want span protection, a robust discussion forum (like the one here) + other Web 2.0 stuff, then perhaps you should consider something like SS.

    It also depends on whether you wish to become an Object Oriented architect and a PHP programmer yourself or whether you are looking to get things develop.

    My sites www.prashanta.com and www.thebigidea.co.nz - former SS latter Drupal.

    Hope this helps

    cheers

    Chiefworker.. Sorry to say after your well thoughout response, this looks like a spam post that has been hitting the SS forums lately. So this thread will probably get deleted in 3... 2... 1...

    @Chiefworker, don't feel bad; I fell trap to one of these earlier too. Perhaps we should request a Spam button for such blatant link baiting posts. Leaving the posts up only rewards their efforts. Drupal's forums moves such users to a Spam category, but leaves the content indexed (which I think is silly).

    Well, well - having lost all my hair ! I should have see that - actually trapping this kind of "spam" (in a forum) is pretty challenging - whatever one does - one will have to trade off false negatives (genuine question) against false positives (spam).

    I am glad that I digitised a bit of atoms anyway

    cheers
