I am a long-term user of Rapidweaver, and have created several portfolio and small business sites using it over the years.
Several weeks ago a group of us got together to plan a new site which will list a growing number of accommodation offerings. It’s really a simple concept: a good looking attractive banner with slideshow, a welcome text below and alongside that a space for an HMTL booking widget. Below that there will a simple listing of thumbnails and text which initially will link directly to individual websites, together with a “latest news” type sidebar blog. Over time we will certainly add pages such as information about the area, a google map showing the locations of the properties and probably individual pages for people who don’t want or need a whole website.
At the time the decision was taken to make it in WordPress so that it could be managed by other members of the group, rather than just me. However I’m reading about new CMS capabilities and hoping that some developers, experts and users can tell me whether this would work for our group?
I have been really struggling with the theme we bought for WordPress and frustrated because I know how simple it would be to do it in Rapidweaver! So if I were to establish the structure as described above, would the CMS allow other non RW users to update text and images, add new content and perhaps add new pages (based on existing models?) The site must be fully responsive and ideally allow me to use my existing considerable suite of plugins such as Stacks.
