Building a site a client can update?

By matt ·
Hello. I'm thinking about dipping my toe in a little web design. I
want to know how exactly pro's handle designing a site that a
client with no html or design experience can update.

For example. A rock and roll band needs a website. They need to
be able to update their tour dates, news, and photo gallery freq;
uently. How would you handle such a site. Would you design the
site with some sort of application that would easily allow the
novice to update, or would you charge every time the client
needs new info updated? I would like to just hand the site over
to them eventually.

Any help appreciated.

Because this site is for a rock and roll band, the audience is most likely young and you should use a lot of dynamic interaction. I would use Macromedia's Flash but allow alternatives for slower connections. Check out to see what I mean.

If you are developing in ColdFusion, you could create admin screens for the band to use when updating the site. If not, maybe you would want to check out Macromedia's Contribute.

Not sure if this helps but at least it will give you some options to look over. Start with

Have fun!!!
