Interactivity: Web Scripting for Auctions, Classifieds, etc...

What do I need?

Websites requiring more than a simple payment option, or submitting a form (like a classified or auction website) need to be "driven" by a database.

Why do I need it?

If the type of website that you want to build is based on an auction-type of sales platform, or allows others to upload their own images and data like a classified site, then a static website won't fit the bill. Furthermore, if you require a login with password, you'll need a database-driven script to keep track of the passwords.

Where do I get it?

This type of site does need to be created (or configured) by a professional. There are many scripts that programmers have written that perform that function. They are available for purchase, but require a good deal of configuration to meet specific needs. We at Anson-Bowles have experience installing and configuring scripts that will meet your needs.

Can I...

Do it myself?

No, you really cannot create that type of site yourself. There are hosted sites that will, for a monthly fee, provide you an interface that you can edit.

Learn How?

The amount of support that configuring a complex script requires is a bit beyond the scope of most html programmers.

Hire a professional?

Whatever you choose, Anson-Bowles can add any features to your website you choose.

Do without it?

Yes, you can!
