I am looking at seeing if a website I need is better off being built as a custom CMS rather than using something like Joomla which we are currently using.
Finding plugins for certain functions and layouts is practically impossible so my next thing would be to have our own.
The website would need the basic CMS stuff, ability for back end admin access and front end access for certain users. Ability to post up news, reviews images etc with ease without the need to know HTML, PHP etc.
Sites with similar features that I want are
Important features for the site are
- Ability to have a games portal for each game which has information about the game, platform etc with links to the game review (see links)
- Ability to have a reviews page where all reviews can be search for and filtered (see links)
- Being able to enter this information in the backend or front end of the site without the need of expert knowledge (just entering fields)
- Ability for users to score the game
More feature can be explained by looking at the links for an over all feel of the website.
