Use PHP,CSS and MySQL to create dynamic web content. This will allow for the separation of presentation and content and the ability to create an economical website that is easily updated and maintained.
We’ve all seen those stale web pages out there – “Last updated: Feb 02 1999”. Not that you really need to see the date because the presentation itself speaks volumes about when the page was created. Perhaps the authors think that web pages are like wine – the older the vintage the better. More likely though, this is wine that has turned to vinegar. Unfortunately, there are far too many failed web sites. Not only do they clutter up the Internet but they seem to show that web sites are ineffective business tools.
Lack of proper maintenance is the major reason that web sites fail. Information becomes stale and interest and traffic drops off. The high costs and difficulty of updating and changing a site also contribute. Businesses change all the time and those changes need to be reflected in the web site on an ongoing basis. A web site that is stale and static detracts from rather than augments a business. What is needed is a “sustainable” site.
