I am new to rails and need help. I am not a coder, developer, webmaster, but a marketer and I need the “experts” advice on something I am about to do. I while back I purchased a license to some Ruby software for an Ezine and I love using it and how it’s CMS all works so well. I have been using it on the software owners server, but I want to expand it’s use and hopefully update this software to bring it up to date, but just not sure it is worth it or even capable. It was created by PressPublisher.org but now owned and used by PageFarm.com. I use it on my FireMagazines.com and several other sites.
I know it’s an older version of Ruby and looks a little antiquated, so that is where I need advice. I am considering having an India group to upgrade the Ruby version, then make it look a little “slicker”. I would also like to add a better photo album, calendar system and advertising system to make it a true online magazine software that I can use on many more sites. Is it worth the cost and effort to upgrade the version being used? Are there ways to do this w/o messing up everything I like about this software?. Any suggestions, advice, help or offers will be appreciated, Scott
