I have been assigned to create a craigslist-like community board for my company's internal website. The basic idea is to have a place for 100+ employees to post classifieds, events, etc. The only problem is I have limited (no) web database knowledge or experience. Is there any kind of community board templates or software that can be easily set up?
I'm curious what codes are used to create sites such as myspace.com. Obviously html for the design, but what about the rest of the site. It is essentially a database. I'm not a programmer so I have no idea what type of coding is involved for searching and allowing others to fill out forms to create a profile. I'm also wondering what type of equipment would be needed to host and maintain a site such as this. I'm basically looking for what is involved on the backend on these type of sites.
