debiandude has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a nice website right now that I've worked on for a while. Its very modular and conforms to standards. However I wanted to upgrade it to have database interaction and such. I tried using php-nuke but I wasted most of my time deleting features that I didn't want rather than setting up my site. I don't need this kind of trouble.
So basically I want to ask whats the best approch to desiging a whole site in perl. I have all the HTML. Its split into 3 section the top header, the left menu, and the middle content section.
Should I create a giant moudle and end up doing something like print $page->header, $page->menum $page->content($data);
Is that how sites like this do it? Any help would be appreciated. Is this sites code available for download. I tried looking at slashcode also but it was a little too much, again way more than I need. Simple site. Just use the database to retrive articles.
