I just downloaded DDN to look over and see if it was something that we would like to integrate into our intranet/extranet rebuild.
My initial reaction is that this is a very sweet solid foundation to build upon. But i do have a question. All our intreanets and extranets are actually web based applications. Everything being database driven. That being said i will need the ability to
Insert, Delete, and Update records for each application.
Is there a module out there that can handle these requirements. I have looked at a couple of the modules out there but they seem to be targeted more towards a web site where you need to set up a survey or a contact page. Something where i will enter the
data and it will write to a database or textfile, etc and then your done. What they seem to be lacking is the ability to pull that record from the database and display that record to the user again so they can edit or print it. Maybe i have just looked at
the wrong modules and maybe i just need to create 1 that will handle the complexity that i think im looking for or maybe i just create a directory on the web site and just copy all my pages over instead of trying to rebuild it using DNN.
So i ask would you create the new site using DNN or just use DNN for the main interface and CMS and then actually create a directory that holds all the pages to the actual web site. I guess im just trying to figure out if i use DNN to create the entire site
or if i can just copy my current pages into a directory on the DDN web site and then i dont need to worry about a input form module as i can just continue to create my pages -page by page-.
Any ideas or thoughts are welcomed and if you can provide any links to articles that talk about using DNN for more of a application web site instead of just a typical text style web site that would be helpful
