tips for making a useful website

In addition to providing good content it is essential also to think through, and explicitly define:

  • profiles of people that might be trying to find the website through a search engine, what they might be looking for and what search words they are likely to enter.
  • The objectives of the website with respect to the outside world. This will guide the styling and graphic design work as well as the effort in optimizing search engine rating.

web based Enterprise Resource Planning

A good example of an open source ERP is webERP which I have set up here. Feel free to poke around to see what it does. It's very quick to install and can be used in many instances with virtually no modification.

Putting up a web store is also easy now with the relevant drupal module (ubercart) or good software like oscommerce available open source. Have a look at the ubercart store and oscommerce store set up on this site. (you can play around but could end up actually buying some software!)
