I've been asked to look into building a new website for an organisation that already has a hundred or so pages on their old home spun site (it looks a bit 'hamster dance' if you catch my drift).
The remit they've given me is that they want to be able to add pages when they desire and also have links to monthly newsletters - including archived ones.
I've done websites before with this sort of thing and frankly they are a right royal PITA. Every time they need a new page adding, I have to add a link to the menu on every existing page to point to the new one. Also, every time a new newsletter appears, I have to add a link to it too.
Now what I'd like is:
1. Maybe one links menu that is embedded in every page - all I'd have to do is one change, and it would appear an every page. I've thought of Iframes but I think they can be messy and it's easy to end up with sliders that you don't want.
2. A script (possibly?) that see a folder full of PDFs and lists and links to them within a page. I'd just FTP a new newsletter into said folder and leave the script to sort it out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
