    Hi, I'm was wondering if theres anyone who's succeeded in designing their social site via elgg with no previous programming knowledge.  Is it possible or am I way over my head?  Your feedback will be appreciated.  Also, After...
    • You should be able to create basic functionality with no programming knowledge, with some custom plugins from this website and maybe a few hours of custom development from a programmer to help you with features you may have problems with. You can use documentation or this forum to get help. This should be enought in most cases.

       

      On the other hand, if you want to develop a website which is:

      • bug free [QA]
      • not vulnerable to upgrades of future Elgg versions [Elgg]
      • with good design [Graphics, CSS]
      • scalable [Elgg, Sysadmin]
      • secure [PHP, Sysadmin]
      • with features customized to your needs [Elgg]
      • user friendly [UI]

      this is a task for someone with a lot of experience, or better yet, for a group of people who specialize each in different aspect. This is in fact a rule for all OS systems. It's easy to start and do something that is working. It's harder to do something which is a really good, competitive and sustainable finished product.

      In fact, best sites are never finished.

      On the other hand, it's usually best to have something working before you start working on a version which will be a finished product. First version can give you attention or funding to be able to complete next versions.

    • You will need programming knowledge in order to get a high level of customization.  Basically if you can't do it with a plugin that already exists, you'd have to build your own plugin, which requires being comfortable with some programming.
