Have someone enquiring about wanting a website that is viewable on mobile device browsers like smartphones, tablets etc but also on desktop PC browsers. The website will have a mix of blog items like ability to add articles, add images, calendar for events etc. So I then thought of Wordpress, why re-invent the wheel right. Get a kickass template for this guy and there you go, all sorted.
He then went on to say users would need to register on the website, and will have a username and password to log in with and access certain things like "extra" calendar items, extra articles, pictures etc. So some parts of the website will be restricted. So then I started thinking Joomla?
I normally do custom development from scratch....but due to the amount of time needed for this, the cost being higher with custom dev...Im rather opting for things like Wordpress and Joomla. I have used Wordpress for very simple sites, nothing that needs "extra" dev...and Joomla to maintain a website. So thats about it...no "real" coding experience with either.
So is Joomla the option here, or does Wordpress have templates that are this sophisticated?
PS: I have a PHP, ASP, JS background if that info is useful in any way
EDIT: Forgot to add, a backend admin section is needed to approve/decline registration requests...
