I'm working on a project that involves a lot of independent content. I need to create a website that any number of people can edit while still keeping people away from the actual code.
When you create a site, how do you deal with content updates? Do you set them up with some kind of content management, or do you just charge them to update the site? This site, by its nature, can't be dependent on any one person, so I can't charge anyone to update it.
I'd just like to hear what you guys do, if you want to throw anything out there.
One of my current ideas is to set up a hosted wordpress blog with various sections (if this is a feature of wordpress) and then give different users access to different sections. Assuming that wordpress can generate an RSS feed for each section, my website would read the RSS and create a dynamic frontpage that pulls information from this blog. This way I could separate the website and the actual content.
Have any of you done something similar? Is this a reasonable way of going about things? Would something other than wordpress work better for my needs? Also, what is a good way to read and even generate RSS feeds using PHP?
I'm breaking a lot of new ground and am doing my own research, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't veering to far off. I'd love to hear what you guys have to say.
P.S. Just to make it clear: I don't want to go with a straight blog, because there'll be a lot of other dynamic information I'd like to include on this site, including reading other dynamic RSS feeds.
