Hi guys and gals, I'm going to be starting to design a site for a friend and artist soon, and of course the first and sometimes toughest question is how exactly to code it as far as CMS, php, etc are concerned.
The concept for the site is pretty similar to a webcomic, except that posts will be graphics, text, or video.. but a chronological archive is important.
I want to use some sort of CMS so that he can easily do updates himself, but I have limited experience with anything outside of Wordpress.
Wordpress could be a good option, of course. I need something that's pretty flexible as far as the css and look and feel of the site bc he has a specific atmosphere etc in mind.. i thinnk wordpress may be the best bet, but I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions of other things I might use that maybe are somewhat more streamlined toward that purpose but still very flexible, or good bases to build something onto. I've heard of cakephp, but I don't quite understand how I'd go about using it or what it's quite supposed to do lol.
I'm an intermediate-ish designer, but I am not afraid of getting my hands into coding and php etc, in fact I sort of want to learn as much as I can about everything.
So lemme know what you think! pros/cons, recommendations etc. thanks so much
