Creating an online marketplace using Webassist

Building an online community marketplace with shop relates sites like or using Webassist extensions and solutions.

When webassist says " Build virtually any website you can imagine with dreamweaver extensions from Webassist.", I believe it. Webassist has very powerful extensions and solutions that can be enhanced when in very skilled hands. This is why I would like to know if it's possible to build an online community marketplace store related sites like or using Webassist extensions and solutions?

That is, can webassist extensions and solutions be used to develop a professional website with similar functionality but not be a clone ? Theses online marketplaces or websites allows users to register, have their respective stores, ability to buy/sell items,sort items, list products for sale, adding/managing events and calendars,private messaging system area for custom requests,shopping cart, geo-location blog functionality, and for community interaction, e.g.[/url] and so forth.

The kind of site I'm talking about will be built using PHP (which webassist already uses) and MySQL and Webassist CMS for back end and front end work.

The most important items are functionality and the ability to easily enable users to customize the look and feel of the website. A format that can be used to create communities based on specific products or services. From my experience, Webassist has most of, if not, all the extensions and solutions to implement 99% of these features.

This is why I would like to know if it's possible to build an online marketplace community with shop related sites like or using webassist extensions and solutions? If this is possible, what would be the appropriate platform? Any other recommendations? Can Ajax be used with webassist products? What about ideally using jquery as a javascript framework? Would I even need jquery as a javascript framework to work with Webassist products? If not what's the preferred choice?

This is a very open ended question. Like you mentioned the tools are very powerful and flexible so you should be able to build out most of the functionality that you would like. The problem is that you will need to first identify and create requirements for the functionality of the site. Asking if you can create something similar to another site is an easy enough question to ask but the answer would involve knowing and understanding the functionality that exists in these other sites. To tell you the truth I have not heard of some of these features and while it may be possible to recreate them with WebAssist tools it would need to be known precisely what the desired functionality is. This way we or the other members of the community can help you devise ways to accomplish this functionality, but without knowing what that is first it is very difficult to speak about how to do it.

I think the first thing you will need to do is go over these sites and try to define what portions of the functionality that you would like to include in your own site. In addition to this you would need to decide if you would like this to work differently in any way and what those requirements are.
