    I'm working on a website project to improve my PHP/Database and CMS abilities. The problem, is that I'm not sure which type of CMS will work with what I'm trying to do.

    I need a CMS that will allow the integration of my own databases, user profiles, 100% customizable pages (both static and dynamic), website based CMS (I want admins to be able to upload content via their website profile, NOT their CMS profile), and the ability to use my own SQL queries.

    I have been researching WordPress, Joomla, Durpal, and a few other free CMS. I think Joomla is the best choice. I found a few user management plugins (which I couldn't find for WP), but I don't know how databases work in Joomla. So I don't know if it will meet my needs.

    PROJECT DETAILS

    Database Setup:



    Project Design:

    (category page)


    (tutorial page)


    (standard user profile [*not admin/no cms])


    As you can see from the design, I can't use the provided DB tables that a CMS (such as WordPress) will provide. Using WP as an example, I wouldn't be able to organize each tutorial by topic and each topic by category. I also wouldn't be able to create the profile systems.

    On the other side, adding features, such as a commenting system, would be easier using a WP database because the scripts would be provided as part of the WP download files.

    Is there a CMS that can provide the features I need? If there are multiple, which do you suggest?

    None that I'm aware of. If you're needing to get deep enough that you're controlling individual tables in and relationships in the DB, you're probably looking at a custom job.

    Thanks for the response.

    I guess I will be building the CMS myself. This should be interesting.

    Yeah Concrete5 actually is pretty decent, but I like Get-Simple a bit better...

    It's also the slowest, most complex, and least secure, of all of them. For a casual site or a site that's really meant to be a blog, it's a very versatile system, however, for a business site that's infrequently updated it's really not that fitting.

    Why don't you address shovenose's argument first before bumping a dead thread with a generic remark, Danish? If you really believe what you just said, you should be able to argue his point.
