Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to some questions we've been asked. If you don't see your answer, just let us know. We're here to answer all your questions and help you become more comfortable with using the internet to show off your work.


HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO DO AND HOW MUCH DO YOU DO?
We have some clients who want us to maintain every aspect of their web site for them. We have others that want us to build the framework, but want to maintain the information themselves. Typically you tell us what you want to see and what you want to maintain on your web site. We will build the framework and then you maintain the lists.

WHAT'S A LIST?
A list is the information that you maintain yourself and is shown on your web site. Since it's these lists that make this service powerful, we've dedicated a page to explaining it. click here for more info.

WHAT DOES "FEATURED" MEAN?
Items in a list can set as active or inactive. They can also be set as "featured". But what does that mean? Well, it can mean several things.... I think it's best described here: click here for more info.

ARE THERE ANY QUICK WAYS TO LOAD A LOT OF ITEMS AT ONCE?
Sure, if use Microsoft Excel, or already have your information in other software, we can take that information and upload it to the server more quickly than re-entering it by hand. Send us the information and we'll convert and upload to the server for you.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET STARTED?
If you already have a logo and other information about your work, we'd like to see it. If you already have color preferences, let us know. You might have a photo album, or perhaps a pamphlet showing your work. We'd like to see that too. If you already have an idea of a website, show that to us. use whatever tools you are comfortable with. Create it in Word, Publisher or even draw it on a piece of paper. We'll take it and start creating your site anyway you'd like it.

WHAT'S A DOMAIN NAME, AND DO I NEED TO GET ONE MYSELF?
A domain name is a unique internet name that identifies you or your company. They usually end in .com and cost about $9.99/year to register. If you already have a domain name registered you can use that. If you don't already have one, we'll help you register a domain name. If's not nececcary to have a domain name. IF you don't your web site address would be www.woodworkergallery.com/yourname instead of www>yourdomain.com. You can see moer information on the difference by clicking here, but for less than $10/year Sure, if you'd like to, you can logon to the Woodworker Gallery Administration site and see the "behind the scenes" of how you would maintain your web sites lists. We don't have a general demo setup at the moment, so let us know if you're interested and we'll email you the login information.

CAN I SEE A DEMO?
Sure, if you'd like to, you can logon to the Woodworker Gallery Administration site and see the "behind the scenes" of how you would maintain your web sites lists. click here for more info.

WHAT ARE THE BACK-END SERVER ENGINES?
Okay, no one really asked us that question, but since we're on the topic, the Woodworker Gallery is running on ASP (Active Server Pages) Servers and SQL (Standard Query Language) databases. This is information that you probably don't want to know, but if your significant other, or more likely your kids, want to know, you'll be able to tell them. Just tell them SQL and ASP.
