I already did the site for the church, and now the school wants to have their site 'match' the church site.
Each teacher needs to have a page for their class. They need to be able to edit their page (and only their page), and since their skills vary widely, some sort of WYSIWYG editor would be a good thing.
I know almost nothing about CMS and would really appreciate some help. I've looked into some 'blog' type software, but I need something that can be used within the current 'design' structure.
Thanks in advance.
...I think you should ask yourself (and answer the question honestly) whether your skill set is sufficient to deal with implementing a website which is dealing with children. If the children are to have any access at all, then the question is even more important.
I consider myself a professional and I would probably still hand a job like this off to someone I knew who had experience in the problems which are inherent in an educational site.
Having talked to someone who does deal with schools (in the UK), one major factor is security (both ingoing and outgoing). Another is the formal standards which it is necessary to implement in any websites receiving public funding (some of which are currently being discussed elsewhere) in certain countries.
This is not meant to put you (or other readers) off taking jobs like this, just to get you to think about what they can entail.
BUT I did find a great one called Big Medium that seems to be very close to contribute as far as ease of use and functionality goes, but is only $129.
Once again thanks for the help!
