    I have access to a website system that is similar to a CMS but pulls in other info etc.

    How hard is it to figure out how things work and rip it and duplicate it?

    Maybe I'm not clear on what you're asking, but how hard it is will depend on your knowledge of ASP programming. You won't be able to get the server-side files without getting access to the server itself, so you'd need to have some understanding of how the site's functionality could be implemented using ASP and then build it yourself (or have someone else do it for you). You can't just "rip" a site that has server-side code.

    Thanks for the reply. What Im meat to say is how hard would it be for a ASP programmer to duplicate the functionality of a site if I gave them access to the front end?

    It would still depend on the programmer's skill regarding ASP and/or SQL and/or AJAX and/or whatever else the site might be using. The programmer should be able to look at the front-end (both the user interface and what gets rendered client-side) and have some idea of how the back-end works. You may not be able to get an exact duplicate because there's often more than one way to code something to get the same outcome. Also, the "duplicated" site need not use ASP. It's likely that it could be done using any other server-side language or platform (e.g. PHP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, etc.).

    If you're going to have someone else code this project for you, I'd recommend upgrading from ASP to ASP.NET. Btw, that's what I do - ASP.NET - so if you don't already have a programmer in mind, feel free to PM me. :)

    thanks guys. It would be better to get someone who can do it in PHP as I have "some" knowledge of that.

    From what I can gather its not the most complicated system.

    Okay, I will keep you in mind mate. Im going to write a brief on what exactly I need and then get some quotes

    ASP, PHP, ColdFusion, whatever, for medium-small sized projects (most) it really doesn't make a difference, use whatever your most comfortable in. Also I dunno what your tryign to copy, but if it is just a normal CMS, there are tonssss available out there open source style

    Sorry I meant CRM

    Its like a CRM but not quite. So it maybe something a programmer can add onto a current CRM software such as SugarCRM
