I would like guidance about following issue :
1 - How much to add to a sites cost for incorporating paypal functionality ?(amount in dollar)
2 - Is it possible to automatically sumbit CMS pages to google ?
3 - How can I incorporate category management into a php site ?
(table design and php code hints would be great, I want the ability to create categories and change the order as well , moving categories and sub categories up and down).
4 - How to build a sitemap of CMS pages.
thanks for the clarifications.
"afaik" stands for "as far as i know".
Google provides a form where you can submit a page (but they dont guarantee that page will be indexed and when) - http://www.google.com/addurl/. Dont know if they have API for that.
Thanks for the prompt reply,
Is answer to you mentioned "afaik paypal integration" I quite didn't understand what you meant by "afaik", and any advice on one time cost not based on hourly rates.
For your answer to second question , does google provide any API which can be included on the site and user prompted to copy and paste a link provided and click submit button.
your answer to the third question was really helpful.
Thanks a lot for all your help.
cant tell for sure (dont know hourly rates in your country), but afaik paypal integration is pretty straightforward.
Do you mean to send a link to your page to a Google after you published it in your CMS? No, Google does not provide such a feature. All pages are indexed organically.
For a simple category tree, you could use table like that:
id title parentid position
1 Cars 0 1
2 BMW 1 2
3 Audi 1 3
id - int, auto_increment;
title - varchar or text,
parentid - int, references a parent category
position - just generate a unique number when creating category. Later you change position just by swapping this position number for a category that is to be moved, and next (or previous) to it. And you output your category list with ORDER BY position ASC (or DESC, depends on your implementation).
- Very similiar to categories. Page can be a row in database with parentid referencing to parent page. If you want to generate a sitemap, take a look here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2909868/help-with-php-recursive-navigation-list-menu
