CMS HELP!

  • # November 23, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    I have a customer that is requesting a website that will include the list below. Obviously, I will need to utilize a CMS. I have downloaded a template from Website Baker, but I don’t understand how to maneuver in it. I really don’t see where to begin. They only want access to the Blog, Calendar of Events and Photo Gallery. I was honest with them and told them that I have never worked with one of those sites and I feel that it is going to take me a while to learn it. Please help, because I don’t know PHP and that is what is in the markup. I hope that this makes sense to someone. Maybe I should try a WordPress Template, please advise.

    • I’d like a blog with commenting feature

    •PayPal as payment processor

    • A plugin for playing videos on your website

    • Calendar/Events listing

    • Photo gallery for displaying photos

    • Contact Us form

    • Search engine friendly links

    • I’d like to track and measure website traffic

    Ok…maybe there is something missing here. I have never worked with a CMS before, so this is really confusing to me. Where can I find information on starting from the beginning?
