June 3rd, 2006, 12:15 AM #1Static or Dynamic or Combo?
I'm changing the designs of my sites -- plus every now & then I change my mind
Anyway, which sites do you prefer to create? Which sites would entice you to visit/shop: a static html page built with CSS or a dynamic page?
I am not a newbie to html (although I can always improve upon techniques) but I am a newbie when it comes to PHP & MySQL (although I have Dreamweaver MX and I have a few books).
Perhaps there are some online tutorials you would recommend?
I've used CGI.
Which type of site performs better in search engines (this is subject to debate)?
Which type do you think web surfers are more attracted to?
If you create a dynamic site, do you use PHP & MySQL, or do you ASP and a database, or some other method?
Do you think it's a good idea to have the entire site dynamic or would you mix some static pages with some dynamic pages as long as something visual such as a logo could bring the pages together?
How about a static site with some embedded dynamic scripts?
Please let me know your opinions. I chose this sub-forum because I think this question could be helpful to newbies too.
I look forward to reading the opinions of both affiliates and merchants.
Thanks in advance!

I have some static pages on my sites, but most of the meat of my sites are dynamic. I always strive to provide value and usefulness, and I find that that usually entails dynamic things.
Look at the types of sites that you use every day. Are those static or dynamic? ABW? Dynamic. Google? Dynamic. Yahoo Finance? Dynamic. Yahoo News? Dynamic. I look through the sites I use regularly and/or have bookmarked, and almost all of them are dynamic.
I use Perl and MySQL for my sites. Many others use PHP, ASP, CFM, and others, but those weren't around (or at least not mainstream) when I got started, so I did things the hard way and have never changed.
