I’m new to EE and these forums so I hope I’m posting in the right spot. I’ve recently taken on a job developing a site for local public schools. The site needs a launch page from which you choose which school you wish to view information on.
All the schools must use the same layout but the only thing that changes on the layout is the logo and colours, I think I have worked out how to do that but I am having trouble on how to structure the rest of it.
I have set up multiple template groups. One is called Launch, which contains the CSS and index for the launch page.
Another is called embeds, which contains the CSS for the layout of all the other school pages and the JQuery for the navigation bar and also the header which display differently depending on which school page you are viewing.
The other template groups are for each individual school and they contain an index page which has the embedded header template from the “embeds” group and also a nav template because each school’s navigation menu may need to vary slightly.
What would the best way be to set up pages for each of the schools? Like the ‘about us’ page and ‘contact’ page etc. Each school is going to have the same pages but the information displayed on the pages needs to be different. The information on these pages needs to be editable by school staff, do you need to set up a separate channel for each page or a separate channel for each school and have the content of each page contained in channel fields?
I think I have confused and frustrated myself even more trying to explain it.
