Web development.

Post icon  Posted 06 April 2006 - 05:02 AM

I am creating a website which allows users to create their own unique pages (sub domains) and allows users to add pictures/photos from my database to their pages.
What would be the best way to program the website.
Should every user have a page of their own therefore creating possibly thousands of web pages each with an entry to it from the database, or

Should I create one page which can be customised to each users own settings ie. header file, footer file etc.

As a am new to web developemnt please bear with me if it sounds a bit confusing.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I'd suggest having one page with customizable elements, with the customizations being stored by user ID in the data base. That way, you can handle each different user by code, and changes to the overall template can be done in one place, as opposed to possibly having to change thousands of pages.

Since you're using ASP.net you should look into Web Parts, They are GREAT for this kind of stuff
