To Jessica Hyman (who I'm also sending this to):
This is what I have so far for a basic template. Home and About are the
only links that do anything. I was wondering if you have any images or
content you might like to see on these two pages. Also, I know some
things are ambiguously worded (i.e. Login/Register we'll probably want
to specify it's for organizational use).
Chris: Essentially I devised a poor man's content management system
The hierarchical flow, quite similar but not identical to what Mike and
I did with the CSSA site goes:
Instead of branching content.php or main.php (like the CSSA site using
WordPress), you completely replace them.
Currently, the only thing I set up to demonstrate/test this is the about
page, which replaces main.php.
The index.php file in the about directory sets two variables: $TITLE and
$PATH, and then includes the index.php file of it's parent directory.
The base files check for files of the same name in the $PATH directory
to include instead of the file in the base directory.
So the tree for the about page would be this:
Meanwhile, you can replace anything that's a child of index.php as well.
So I'd expect you'd replace sidebar.php with to include a div for the
map. I'd expect there to be circumstances where someone might want to
replace the entire content.php, if not just to include breadcrumbs and
link back to the main content.php afterward, for instance.
The one reason this isn't a good method is that it's file-driven rather
than content-driven, but it will work for the scope of what we're doing
(as well as simplify our workload), and I'd expect it to be easily
replaced by the next person with any content management systems
Wasn't that page in a database?
