Case study: Elsshanti
The 'Elsshanti' web site (www.elsshanti.be) is interesting as a case study of a small size web site, for which a custom made content management system was developed.
The web site basically is a web brochure that contains the usual information about the services that are being offered, who the person offering the services is, etc. It also includes pages with different schedules for classes and workshops, which have to be updated regularly. The customer insisted that she wanted to be able to update the pages herself, as she might have to do this very frequently.
Setting up a Joomla or Drupal web site for a web site that counts about a dozen pages seemed like overkill, so a simple custom made management system was created that allows the customer to update the content. The web page interacts (via PHP) with a My SQL database from where the content is fetched. The management module offers the option to choose a page one wants to edit, and then provides a WYSIWYG form in which the texts can be edited.
