WordPress: Yes? No? Maybe?

    Hey Folks,
    I’m just curious if y’all think it would be a good thing, or a waste of time to build something like this: [http://www.towerhobbies.com/products/duratrax/dtxc0078.html](http://www.towerhobbies.com/products/duratrax/dtxc0078.html “example page”) in WordPress. I’ve never built anything in WordPress, but I’m looking for a way to make our sites better (much better) and easier to maintain. I’m also wanting to learn WP so I figured this might be an opportunity for that too. Anyway, any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Wordpress is definitely an option but I have experienced alot of security issues with it on various environments. That example site looks like a good candidate for Drupal but it really comes down to experience and preference. They can both get the job done.

    @KevinOrin can you clarify what you see that makes it a good candidate for Drupal? I’m just curious what stands out to you.

    Drupal + Commerce Kickstart was my first thought, but I am do work in Drupal and not familiar with WordPress.

    Items would be set up as a content type, which would have fields including a Product image, price, etc…Then you could use the Views module to display that data in all kinds of ways. Your features sidebar, for example, would be a view that displayed Product image, and Node title.
