Question & Answer Database site


This may sound like a dumb questions so apologies for my ignorance.

I use Dreamweaver CS4 so something that integrates easily with that would be ideal.

I want to set up a seperate section to an exitsing website as a question and answer area.

Basically people can ask questions, via a simple form, and these will be answered and posted manually, so this bit is very simple. What I want is for this to be database driven with an easy search facility so previously asked and answered questions can be accessed very easily.

Does any one know if the power CMS would do this, if not any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So long as you ensure to insert the question and it's answer into your db this type of setup could be accomplished with a good search and results page. This is not something you will be able to do with the PowerCMS by itself, but if you make use of DataAssist you can create a search and results page set that would letter enter a question and search then get back results based on trying to match the question inputed to to the questions you have in your db. The recordset on the results page would need to be altered from it's default to join it to the answers table.

You would then just design the listing and put the bindings in place to show the answers that correspond to that question. This is just a simple setup for this type of app, it will be do string searching, there is no concept of similar category or anything like that with this type of implementation.
