Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I think having a running poll of desired features would be helpful.

I am a designer....I cannot get my head around databases. If a purchased solution can be ftp'ed and installs itself with prompts I am fine. An example, I use slideshowpro.net for many image gallery solutions with has their Director feature. No problem...installs just fine. I have installed several forums, wordpress sites and a drupal site. No problem. But, I cannot get the data assist to work.....I have tried everything and I am absolutely sure I am not doing something correctly but at the end of the day I bill hourly. So, I purchase software that can be budgeted for the solution. I don't doubt data assist is a good product. But, I have spent 10-15 hours and my billing rate is $85/hour and nothing worked. So, I just lost $850 and learned nothing.

So, maybe part of that issue is there are many different hosting configurations so connecting to a database might be problematic for designers like me. So, having a non-db news solutions would be more universally applicable.

My point about PHP is a positive one. WA has committed to the PHP direction. Which, is easiest for me as a designer to implement in Dreamweaver if the code is idiot proof. My real point is with Sculptor, CSS Nav and now Joe asking what is the next CSS solution user want....I am saying there is plenty of CSS for now....how about a different type of product that fills a niche that obviously has a void. I have invested in the WA solutions...so, I am in this for the long haul. But, I BUY things to make my sites better and also to offset my ability to do certain things by hand. I know just as many PHP coders that cannot design worth a damn and know just as many designers that cannot hand-code PHP.
