There is also a lot happening behind the scenes in the login section for staff


I would very much like just a screen grab of your the login section/pages. Just to get an idea how much GUI you have there and and what options you have for logged in users of a typical website. Do you provide website stats? Backup/Restore? How do ppl upload images?

Anyhoo - nice job. I definately think its worth a couple of grand.

The login section is for things useful to the staff, nothing about stats/backups.  It contains a work order system for technology and facilities and a reservation system for laptop carts in the school.  There are bascially three sections, one for staff to submit work orders and requets, change their account info, etc, one for me to view and update workorders/review laptop requets, and another for facilities and administration to follow up on.  This part of the site is not quite ready yet, probably tomorrow, I can post screens when it is finished if you want.

Ah! Im beginning to think Im doing way too much work and effort in my back-end admin panels  :o

Jea. And here's me thinking backup, restore, stats, full user management etc., uploads had to be done!!!

P.S. For websites where you are not on-site etc. (a design,develop, and hand over site) - you do not put in all backups etc. etc.?

If you wouldn't mind posting a screenie of the GUI of your back-end - just the layout to show the complexity etc. - Id be grateful.
Tis just that I do be killing myself trying to get all possible functionality into the backend.  :'(

I personally never put in additional control for the backend unless they specifically ask for it. As far as backups (both files and database), I keep a backup of every file system I write in case they screw something on their server up, but without them requesting the extra work for backups, file uploads, etc., I don't add it in. If they do request it, the additional work is always figured into the quote, too. No sense in giving out freebees ;)

So do you do a remote backup of files and database via a cronjob?

Cheers.

stats are usually offered through the host, so why bother to reinvent the wheel?  Also, as far as the gui, it looks like the rest of the site.  I typically always make the login sections blend well with the current layout.  The only thing that looks different is my calendar admin section because I created that part seperately from the site to be reused as needed.

Depends on the type of job. If it's a professional site or one with sensitive info, yes, I do. If it's someone's personal site or a small business site, I usually give them an option for backups, but most people opt to do manual backups once a week or so through phpMyAdmin, so I don't have to worry with it. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how to export a table with SQL from phpMyAdmin, so they usually opt for that ;)

Thanks guys. I'll try and lighten my work load, and keep ideas quiet - until they are asked for ,-) (and factored into price!)
