Thanks for all the previous advice I was given in the first thread of 'The more I learnt the less I know - advice for IT student required', but I would welcome a comment
on how I am proposing to move forward from here.
I stuck to WebMatrix and built the site, database and set up the email and all works fine.
I now am trying to start on the mobile part and have spent the last couple of weeks searching around for the best approach and have had a couple of posts back on the subject.
All have been helpful but some are leading me down new learning areas (jQuery) that I want to save for another time and I keep coming back to the comments of a response in the previous thread, i.e. about using the exact same code base for both platforms.
My thought is to stick with WebMatrix (though I have yet to unearth why the Windows Phone 7 emulator will not run from the
sites’ localhost address), create a Mobile folder in the site with a set of simplified pages but still using the same database as the main site.
If I do this I may as well give the Mobile folder its own css and its own Shared folder with a cut down _Layout and _Header files.
Then use 51Degrees.mobi which I can add through WebMatrix as an add on package in order to deal with WURFL (though as yet
only found examples used through MVC and using Views, have yet to find WebMatrix formatting).
Anyway the above is my current thought, though it may be some way from the previous threads suggestion, I would appreciate
anyone’s considered opinion on my proposed way forward.
