Firstly, CMS is not my field, my expertise lies in CSS and SEO for static html sites - hence why I'm here asking questions.
I'm developing a website for my fathers company (vehicle fleet finance). The website is static HTML, but it needs to have an 'offers' section with a way of uploading and displaying special offers to it on a regular basis.
I have installed Joomla, played around and watched a few youtube tutorial vids. It seems a great tool for building websites from scratch and enabling users to edit the page content, but what I want to know to save me hours of reading before I discover it's not possible, is will it do what I want it to do?
I need a system that lets me upload an offer, the offer will consist of, model of car, picture, price and possible a URL for a button which will link to a form where more information can be requested.
The offers will need to be displayed by type of vehicle and price i.e. show me all 4x4, or all vehicles between £250 - £350 pm.
If it can be done (which I suspect it can) would it work by having one page (offers.php) that is dynamically generated depending what the user has selected from a drop down box. Or, would it create static pages for each category each time it is published (4x4.html, sports.html, 250-349.html etc)?
So can Joomla help me or am I barking up the wrong tree?
