    Web Developing

    Looking for someone to make me a complex site requiring php skills. Please PM for more details. Prefer to work with Surfers, but from the looks I'll end up outsourcing in India to save $$$, but I hate the idea

    How complex? Do you need a store front? There are tons of tools out there you can use to do it yourself. Get a CMS like PHP Nuke and you'll be all set.

    PHP-Nuke may not be the best CMS choice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHP-Nuke#Issues

    Do you plan to use a CMS system and what is the site about? I threw this together in a few hours. Both are still a work in progress.

    PHP Nuke stinks. Go with a different CMS. Something like Wordpress, Joomla, or Drupel.
    Wordpress being the easiest, then Joomla, then Drupel. The learning curve isn't too bad as long as you aren't making crazy changes. But, you can D/L a template and go from there. There are plenty of tutorials that can walk you thru the process.

    Mister Joyner nice Joomla site.

    The latest version is 8.2. All CMS have their issues. Also, there are not supposed to be any recommendations or opinions on Wiki, so that comments is out of context.

    Joomla is a good choice too. I had forgotten about that one. I'm not familiar with Drupel. I haven't used PHP Nuke for a number of years, so I can't really comment on how good or bad it is currently. I know it was solid when I used it for my site a number of years ago.

    PHP Nuke is not in the top 5 for CMS today. I would stay clear of it for now.

    I have used all at some point and Joomla is the best IMO if you are going to do ecommerce. I have a WordPress instance up now and 2 Joomla sites. VirtueCart is very easy to configure and buying a professional template is highly encouraged. As other have said there are tons of resources on the web to get assistance. Another great thing is if you buy the right hosting plan most of this stuff is 1 click install.

    @Aquaholic, thanks

    I still have tons of work to do and the /dev site is the newest version of Joomla and VirtueCart, not ready for my prime time yet. Still working on the overall template design as well. Good thing is that my template has soooooo many options.

    This place does amazing work! -- http://yootheme.com/

    Yeah, I prefer Joomla as well. I have done several Joomla sites myself including mine. Once you get the learning curve...it's pretty straight forward from there. I have been doing websites so long that I build them from the backend. (database level). MYSQL, PHP Admin, ect. If you are comfortable with Joomla, I highly recommend looking into backend/CSS editing. That's where a lot of the magic happens.



    But, like you said. Get a good host and they will either install your template/Joomla for you or make it real simple.
