Custom installations & Modifications
This page is for those who need help or wish to hire LoisC to customize and install your database script with the features that you choose.
You must download and register (as per Gossamer license) the DBMAN database script from Gossamer Threads as instructed on their site, and then I will work with you to customize the script to meet your needs. I do not yet have experience working with the SQL version, as I do not have a host provider that allows MSQL on their servers.
I highly prefer creating database that blend into your site. This includes using the user friendly mod the basic layouts, which makes it very easy for the site owner to then easily make formatting changes at a later time. Another basic mod used is the short/long mod, as this seems to be very popular. You can choose to use this or just the long display depending on your database needs.
Generally I use a minimum amount of tables within the layouts which help to make the database load and display quickly for your site visitors. I use HTML 3.2 as a standard which will make your database viewable in all browsers.
They are some general options that I use as standard when creating databases, so I will include those as selections in the form below. You can also state to the best of your knowledge exactly what functions and features you want or need for your database. A quote can only be as accurate as the picture of what the end result needs to be and what it involves as far as modifications.
Standard custom features include:
There will also be additional information requested to be able to install this on your server. I will provide this list of questions once we have decided to work together on your project.
The following contains a partial listing of databases which I have designed and configured. Links will open in a new window.
Here are some customized applications which are setup as DEMOs to test:
