I don't like flash when it is overdone, which a lot of people do. As I stated, Kneedraggers did a great job with theirs. It's very tasteful.twisty said:You dont like flash? 80% of the web runs in flash.
Some people use IDIOT software like Front page and IBM WebSphere Studio Homepage Builder that allows a 12 year old to build a working website. But then once you get your site working in the train wreck of software app you notice scripting is shady, so you use a site like CodeLifter.com that steals other peoples hard work and allows the hacks that run this software to make their website look and act like they know what they are doing.
As far as our site, the normal HTML pages are done by me...a NON-web person. So yes, I use Web Sphere because it allows us "normal" people to be able to build a web page. As far as the cart and all of the backend, that is hand coded by Roach, who was a software engineer for AOL for seven years. I wish I was as savvy as he is with 'puters, but I am just a college graduate of journalism and marketing. Not computers.
As far as "codelifter.com". I have no clue as to what the heck that is, and there is no reason to steal other people's code when you can write your own. And trust me, after seven years at AOL, Roach has no problem writing his own code. :dthumb:
Kneedraggers.com has been open for four years now, and spends a ton of time on their site...actually has a dedicated person to work on it. Unfortunately, we are just not at that point, but hopefully we will get there in the future. For right now, the updating is done by me so Roach has time to work on the back end and continually work on improving our site, and unfortunately, I have to use IDIOT software like Web Sphere. I do the best I can.
