I would like to migrate my employer's website to SilverStripe. Right now it's a static site, and it's getting rather unwieldy to maintain and update content. I simplified things somewhat by writing a Perl script to generate the site from common templates, bits, and pieces, but it's getting to the point where I just want a real CMS. Here are a few things on my "want" list:
- * Look and feel are very basic plain old CSS, and I'd just as soon leave it that way for the time being. We don't want to radically change this, or make it too fancy or complicated.
- * We have a pretty basic "Home | About Us | This | That | The Other Thing" menu, but I need a way to make it hierarchical, because some of these categories will need to have sub-menus.
- * We have certain required disclaimers that must appear at the bottom of every page on the site, and these must be subject to content management, as they must be updated from time to time and tracked.
- * For regulatory reasons, all versions of the site we publish must be kept on file. An electronic database will satisfy this requirement.
I'd much appreciate any hints or ideas. Definitive solutions not needed at this point, unless it's something very simple and obvious I'm missing that will save me a lot of time. Thanks in advance.
