Web Site Developement Tools

By hfreedman1957 ·
Hi,
I'm going to develop a web site as a side business. I have already signed up with a hosting service. Years ago I wrote a program in MS Access / VBA to run a hockey pool targeted to sport teams for fund raising. I now want to re-create it as a web service. The site will be mostly data forms to be completed by the users with the entered data stored in a MySQL database. Other functions will display and report on db content, do some backend calculations and db entries, and ecommerce for them to licence the use of the program. I have old school programming experience in 'C' and have only dabbled in HTML and SQL. I've taken courses in C++ and Java only to understand OOP but have no practical web development experience. I have been told WordPress is the way to go which my hosting company supports. I'm looking for recommendations on development environments, software, addons, I should learn and use. Thanks!

Wordpress is preferable

by Sjoenne In reply to Web Site Developement Too ...

I have worked with several systems over the years, and my favourite is wordpress - no discussione. If you are careful when downloading plugins, this is a very easy to manage open source system. The styling opportunities are also many, I usually install bridge and look through styles that matches the website product.
One of the wordpress sites i have worked with is this http://www.copenhagenpump.com/produkt-kategori/fad-beholderpumper/ where content is still a work in progress, but i like the way to make categories - which is super easy in wordpress.

Considering the use of your website (hockey pool) i think wordpress would be the best solution.

Good luck with your project :)

WordPress – The Dominating Force

WordPress was first released in 2003. Its principle technology is PHP with an SQL database in the background. In recent years, like in many other places of the web, JavaScript has been getting more important. This is especially obvious from projects like Calypso and the upcoming Gutenberg editor.

Since its inception, WordPress has undeniably had the best run of all available content management systems.

In the CMS market, it is the big fish in the pond with a market share of 60 percent and climbing. In addition to that, it will soon run a full third of the entire Internet. WordPress recently crossed the 30 percent threshold for usage overall. Based on Internet Live Stats that means about 560 million websites run on WordPress. It also makes WordPress the fastest growing CMS of the last eight years.

Thanks! Yep, WordPress seems to be the unanimous choice. If anyone can suggest which plug-ins I should use to handle my input forms and saving that data to a mysql database, it would be appreciated. Thanks so very much.
