The true power of the Internet is realized through the appropriate use of Online Apps or Management systems where the source of data for the application is contained in databases. This could be a phone list, email list, membership list, product list or any other kind of list that might otherwise be stored in a spreadsheet or database format. The beauty of having these lists available through an Online App is that it is available for access and management from anywhere in the world where an Internet connection can be obtained.
Moreover, these lists can be made available, with restrictions, to customers and clients to subscribe, update or review information pertinent to them as individuals or groups. Enrollments, list updating and even invoice payments can be enabled and managed through our Online Apps. I would be happy to discuss whether an Online App is appropriate for you.
This is the process used to create website features like drop-down menus, rollover buttons and text links through Java. But it's so much more than just that. Dynamic scripting can be used to create unique and progressive calendars, photo galleries, product lists, automatic rollovers, member directories and so much more.
Dynamic scripting provides the medium through which reams and reams of information may be presented to your website visitor in manageable bits and pieces. Manageable in terms of what you can expect your website visitor to absorb, what you want your website visitor to see, as well as meeting the limitations of monitor resolution. The bits and pieces become the website content with dynamic scripting controlling the navigation, timing or order the bits and pieces are presented.
Dynamic scripting is incredibly powerful. Event calendars organize a vast array of activities, times and places into an easy, fast, reference for your website visitor. Photo galleries compile huge libraries of photographs into chronologic, categorized albums. Automatic rollovers take scores of data and present them individually and sequentially to your website visitor daily, weekly or monthly. Product lists become an online catalogue through dynamic scripting providing the product name, number, sizes available, pricing, and so on. Through all of this, dynamic scripting provides the means by which navigation through incredibly large lists is incredibly easy.
Some websites lend themselves to the inclusion of dynamic scripting, some do not. Knowing the difference and having the resources to incorporate dynamic scripting into your website is where I go way beyond the abilities and capabilities of most web designers.
