What CMS to use for your project?

Good day!

I would like to consult. Turned a non-profit organization asking them on a web-resource which would and requirements "more than" consistent with, and work helped them to organize. The organization deals with animals. In General requirements are described as follows:
  • Required multi-user system with differentiation of access rights;
  • "Looks" (for not authorized users) must look like the most typical news site + catalog animals, with optional sorting by certain criteria (type, breed, age, etc);
  • "Inside" need to be able to manage these same news, + static pages;
  • Keeping a "catalogue" of animals (the required fields, by itself, in the process, will be added\deleted);
  • The ability to export data from the "directory" doc\xls format for reporting, after a preliminary selection according to certain criteria;
  • A single photo gallery \ media kotent \ document repository (in a file);
  • Feedback from site visitors (not via e-mail and internal messaging system \ ticket \ etc, so that any of the employees could answer the question visitor);
  • The organization is a non - profit, the cheaper the better.

In what direction is worth a look? What is the solution out of the box covers the maximum requirements? I would really appreciate sensible advice.

Grab that CMS that you yourself best know. Did you do 50 sites on Wordpress - get it and don't think, act.

A lot of features, such as news, feedback, gallery, covers, any CMS + a couple of pluginitem possible. Part of the functionality, e.g. export/import from xls in any case, you will need a hand to finish.

Separately I'm confused by the point about the ticket system... There is, for example, omnidesk, which allows centralized all correspondence by e-mail with assignment of responsibilities, monitoring the implementation etc. For Joomla, I like the plugin just seen, only the names do not remember.

I'd take Drupal, the brain of course will get screwed (in terms of settings, etc.), but cover the task.

Most CMS support at least half of what You mentioned. Some can be expanded to the desired functionality of the plugins. One time I was doing (plus/minus)similar to Joomla, but now moved to October CMS. Let's see if the functionality suits (including plugins), you can try. If that is not enough, make your plugin very simple.

I would take and wrote from scratch.
We saw these "written from scratch". The documentation for your "from scratch" no one is free to write does not want. What is the profit to pay 2 times? - Garland36 commented on July 9th 19 at 10:32
: mmm... what prevents using phpdoc at the time of writing the code? I always do and then dokoy is no problem - Jaqueline.Parisian commented on July 9th 19 at 10:35
: just point it in teh job and pay 300rub. ) On the output to get performance on the order of kms in jail. - Brody_Dickins commented on July 9th 19 at 10:38
: i.e., for 300 rubles you are willing to write reviews is comparable to the volume in the code itself? - Brody_Dickins commented on July 9th 19 at 10:41
and it's a free make. Here's my IMHO - Jaqueline.Parisian commented on July 9th 19 at 10:44
From the fact that the cost of programming you include writing documentation, free this work did not. - Brody_Dickins commented on July 9th 19 at 10:47
