I am currently developing a website in VB.Net with CSS/SASS, JQuery and JQuery UI for Heritage Art Papers Ltd which achieved 66% as my final year project at university.. It was the dissertation which let me down.. The website has a full administration frontend for editing what end users see on the customer frontend. My aim over the period I am working on it is for administrators to eventually be able to add and remove attributes for specific types of item (that is: Range, Collection, Design, RangeCollection, CollectionDesign and RangeCollectionDesign [the final product with a product code]). They will then be able to reference these in the item template for the catalogue by using square brackets. Over time the system should become very sophisticated, and should log all actions (big or small) and highlight the important ones to admin - for example hacking attempts.

I know CSS/SASS, HTML (obviously), ASP, ASP.Net (VB), PHP (a bit), Java (a bit) and JQuery/JQuery UI. I would like to learn C++ or C#, but to be honest I just dont have the time at the moment.

I have just started work for StepStone Solutions in Luton, as an Application Developer. Loving the job so far, having just finished my 2nd week.

comment One page using querystring or many folders and pages?
In some cases I have nested business objects - for example /customer/contact/, /customer/address/, /customer/contact/address/ and so on.

comment One page using querystring or many folders and pages?
Thanks for the input adam, much appreciated. I basically have it in this kinda layout: /ab/abCore/--all the core code files in here, then /ab/[business-object-name]/ for the list, /ab/[b-o-n]/edit/?id= for the edit page and then same for create / delete. Each business object has its own 'setup' file which sets all the variables which apply to all actions, then the individual homepages override them if they have to. All stylesheets are in one folder, scripts in another and images in another. It really is looking very neat now, and so easy to tell what should display what.

Got it sorted for server, so the user just has to go to /myApp/server/ for the list, and then the edit buttons link to /myApp/server/edit/ and so on. Easy to change and I think it should be easier to manage in this way as I don't have to worry about the user being able to change the querystring (meaning it is more secure).

I am just trying it out now actually, just for a couple of objects, to see how much easier it is to add a new object type (category for the knowledge base, for example).

No, what I am trying to determine is whether the design is better with just one page for everything, which makes heavy use of the querystring, or using lots of folders which contain files which define the variables themselves. For example /server/create/default.asp would contain the line 'action = CREATE' (where CREATE is a constant defined in /myApp/core/constants.asp). Basically is it better to use ?object=server&action=create or to use /server/create/?
