Hey guys ! can you please suggest me a good cms for a real estate website. all i want from the cms is to do normal functinalities, like display properties, have a description page for each property where i can add multiple images for the property and then i also want a gmap where i can pin the property and also find directions from that property..
i’ve been looking at joomla, but are there any other better options ?
Google, YouTube, a bookstore…there are a ton of resources for someone who wants to learn to make a custom WordPress theme. However there may already be one out there that someone made for doing what you’re doing.
I would check for existing themes/templates first before deciding to make your own.
@theacefes : thanks a lot, but i am not looking for a template. i am looking for a a real estate plugin that can offer me such functionalities as i’ve mentioned earlier.
@TheDoc : thanks yeah i’ve checked them, they are pretty cool ones. but i am still confused with joomla and wordpress, which would you suggest would give more flexibility in managing all the content and would be easy for the client to manage?
You could have a wordpress plugin to go along with a wordpress theme. Different WP themes/layouts/plugins have/create different content types that give you control in content management – but they are all different.
It sounds like you are looking for us to give you an exact link to an exact product that does everything you want (though we really don’t have a good idea of what it is you really want) but you’re not really helping yourself if you don’t at least attempt to search and compare.
Well, i’ve already searched for them, its just to ask an opinion i am asking , if any of the users have used it before , so that they can suggest me and say “hey, this one is good”. wll all the wordpress realestate plugins are here and joomla extensions are here
Joomla is going to be much more hassle than you will want…There are plenty of good WP options out there…WP Plugins are for the most part free, you need to install WordPress and test them out yourself, we really can;t tell you what you are looking for.
