Page Types

I mainly use Rapidweaver, Sandvox and iWeb to design Web-Sites. One of the advantages of using these theme based design programs is that their features/abilities are always growing because it accepts plugins. Plugins are small programs that are designed to speed up the coding of specific page types. At present there are around 50 plugin types.

This particular page is made from a plugin called Columns. It allows you to divide you page easily into two vertical sections and quickly add your content to each column (each can be coded separately). The other plugins listed on this page are merely examples of some of the plugins currently available.

However I can code up pages in pure html if needed. I am currently learning php and hope to be able to provide it at some point in the future.

Content Management System (CMS)

Some examples of the plugins available (and are in the menu above) are:

Content Management System (CMS): WebYep, and Unify are compact Web Content Management System for extremely simple creation of editable web pages. They are a low priced alternative for small to medium websites. WebYep, and Unify allow you to update page contents directly from within your web browser. A click on the login icon (and enter your username and password) and you can modify texts, upload images, change menus online, without having to switch to any administrative interface.

Guest books

Guest books: Guest books allow visitors to leave messages, comments or criticisms about your web-site.

Displaying Images

Displaying Images: If you want to display any images that you have for a photo gallery or something similar then there are several different ways of doing that.

You should tell me how many pictures you want to display and how you want them viewed and I will select the appropriate template (as each has its own features and limitations)


eBusiness: There are three page types that I can create that will make it easy for you to sell whatever you want on the internet. These page types are designed to work with Paypal and Google Checkout.
  • Paypal: This page type provides a shopping cart system based on the PayPal payment system. You obviously need a PayPal account to get started.
  • Google Checkout: This page type allows you to setup nice catalog style pages containing product images, descriptions and pricing. It is powered by Google Checkout, so visitors to your site can add these products to a Google checkout cart and pay you for your items. One major advantage that GoogaLoom has over PayLoom, is the ability to sell and deliver digital downloads.
  • E-junkie: If you want to use e-junkie then I can also code pages for them. However since there is not a dedicated plugin for e-junkie it will be slower and to code and will probably cost you more initially.

Paypal and Google Checkout charge a percentage of your profits. E-junkie charges a monthly subscription fee to sell with them (10 items=$5 p/m, 500 items =$60p/m, 999 items=$125 p/m)


Flickr: Automatically generate a photo gallery page based on your flickr account.


Lockdown: Lockdown is a quick and simple way of password protecting pages and directories. Protected pages require a correct user-id and password to be entered to be able to access them.


Maps: If you want to have a google or yahoo map on a web-page then I can do it. this can be useful if you want to show people where your business is physically located. Thet can be any size and placed on any page.


RSS: Abbreviation for Really Simple Syndication, an alternative way of viewing a webpage. Websites that change frequently, such as news sites, often have RSS views. An RSS page viewed through the your web browser presents the titles of new and recent articles in a list, showing a line or two of each article's content. The term RSS is used interchangeably with feed, news feed, RSS feed, and XML feed.
