I've decided to push things a bit forward and create a larger, more dynamic website. Maybe over few thousand original article pages for a start...
However, I'm not sure what to do.
Now, I use SSI and HTML only. But heard that CMS would be better for larger sites.
What I need is:
1. So I could create filenames like: file-one.html; File-Two.html; fiel.php.
The ending doesn't matter. but so I could choose lowercase letters, or uppercase. And SEO friendly.
2. Add article rating system
Do I need any CMS for that? And if I use CMS, will there be ability to add such scripts easily? Like in Google Adwords learning center. They have a system to rate articles Good or Bad. I'd want a rating from 1 to 5. And see the results easily in my backend.
So far that's it.
I need ability to change design layout easily later if I have many pages.
So far I checked Drupal and Mambo. These I've read are the best...
Maybe You could advice something?
I'm not a programmer. I could add probably some small script in sites. But programming is like a jungle to me.
I'm more designer and HTML & CSS is no problem. I'd like to easily manipulate CSS too...
MAybe at some point allow visitors to contribute articles or something, so I could approve them ot not with a few clicks only...
And I'd need it to be quite fast. I'm not sure how slower things go when You have CMS compared to HTML & SSI based small site...
What could You guys recommend?
