I have built a number of 'bespoke' CMSs with PHP and MySQL just for clients to add news, or product items to a page on their site.
Now I wish to do the same with ASP and just wondered if anyone knows of any good books, tutorials or sites online I could check out. Basically I'd have one user who has access to an 'area' folder that only they have access to. Should I just use sessions for this?
Sessions? If you mean the asp session object. It is a love em and leave em cookie, destroyed at the end of the session. You should be able to accomplish this familiar task, more or less in the same way you did so With PHP.
