    Help with emulating this website http://blog.ratemyprofessors.com/

    Obviously I don't want to copy the site exactly but I would like to create a similar one to this. What are your suggestions on going about this should I use wordpress? What plugins are good? Or should I code it from scratch?
    Thank you so much for your time

    It's W*rdPr*ss. I'm not going to recommend plugins or anything else because WP is bloated, insecure garbage and I refuse to recommend it to anyone no matter what the prevailing opinion is.

    The rest of the answer depends on what exactly you're trying to accomplish. Building something "similar" and copying the site exactly are often the same thing for all practical intents and purposes, so you don't want to do that. So tell us what you're trying to do and we can recommend a better path for you.

    Thanks for the reply,
    I want to make a site where the admin posts information and the users can rate that post. However I don't want just the simple rating system where its out of 5 stars or something I want to rating system they have Rate My Professors ? Find and rate your professor, campus and more ? RateMyProfessors.com where you rate in different areas and it shows the different ratings on the post.

    Hang on, man...are you talking about the blog or the site itself? Because it sounds like the site, but you're linking to the blog.

    Okay...that's not WordPress. That particular site is done in Java (not Javascript, although there is some involved...Java). They've definitely gone to some effort to build this thing if they've used Java, which means no plugins other than reCAPTCHA, no scripts, nothing other than maybe a framework (which would be impossible to guess at).
