I need your help and feedback...

For sometime now I have been conscious of the need to re-write FAQShop to not only address issues (such as the fact the site uses frames which I know some of you find frustrating but it seemed a good idea at the time OR posting new articles to the site is a time consuming process, amongst others).

But I also want to be able to add new features such as RSS feeds so you guys get to know about updated content on the site as soon as it is published amongst others.

Ideally I want the new version of the site to use some sort of database backend which will make it easy to search and hopefully much easier to use and maintain all of which = more content for YOU.

I have been looking at several possible packages to develop the new version but they a) either don’t allow me to replicate the current hierarchical structure of the site (i.e. topic, sub-topic, article) which I know from your feedback you love or b) involve some weird and whacky programming language I’d need to learn to even try to attempt to use the software.

So how can YOU help?

Well if you know of other sites you like the “look and feel” of, have cool features, etc. then post here – they don’t have to be IT-related.

Also let me know of:

  • Any features you would like added to the Site
  • Any problems with the current site whether it’s the font size, layout, etc. – anything as long as constructive.
  • If you (or you know of someone) that has experience of web programming that would be willing to help me develop the next version.
  • If you’d be interested in being a beta-tester of the new version to help shape the end product.
