Interactive or transactional sites
Interactive or transactional sites are used :
- where the page interacts with a database and/or
- where interaction between the page and the user is required and/or
- where the user must complete the process within the transaction in one session i.e. they cannot exit part way through a transaction and expect to re-enter later to complete the transaction.
Transactional sites use a simplified template which does not have the site branding or dropdown menu navigation. They may be a set of pages within a Dreamweaver-based site, or a standalone set of pages.
Links to a transactional-style page must ALWAYS open in a new window. When the user has completed the transactional process, they will close the window to return to the calling page.
