hello all,

I was thinking of creating a directory (i.e. Listing Realtors in a specific area) and was wondering which CMS or software would you recommend? (Drupal, Wordpress? or any Software out there?)

I would like my users to be able to create nice informative pages and include their phone number, address or any website etc...

Any help and guidance is greatly appreciated.

A quick search on : "website directory software" lead me to a few sites, but I think I need more guidance. Also, for some reason I rather use a CMS so I can customize/modify it better rather than purchase a already built software that changing things around would be a nightmare.

thanks in advance,
DP

Our Directories Forum [webmasterworld.com] used to have some threads on that topic. I don't see much recent advice, but this thread may still have some relevant advice: [webmasterworld.com...]

I could recommend two modern options:

- Standalone PHP Link Directory or
- Mosets Tree on Joomla..

I used both, moved after after using both of them to Mosets Tree, it is more flexible and you get all Joomla nice things which are missing in PHPLd, especially about themes, articles, many plugins and modules to make your directory really reach..

Search on Google for exact URLs
