Hello all,

I want to create a home rental website. To do this, I want to create a webpage template where the renter can upload pictures and enter text in certain areas (the renter must be required to log in first). Ultimately, I design the template (and therefore the page layout), but the renter just uploads their pictures and enters text and it appears in the right places on the page. I also want to have a few pop-up menus so the renter can classify their home style, etc. How do I go about making a website like this? I have looked at Content Management Systems (CMS), and they seem to be similar to what I want to do. Is this the best option? I've never used CMS before, can anyone make some recommendations for software?

Thanks for all the help.

A CMS is pretty much what you have been looking for! a good one is Drupal, although it is not the easiest to use. just do a quick search on google and there will be tons of results

Thanks for your reply. Right now, I'm using RapidWeaver to make the site. I took a look at WebYep because of its integration with RW, but it didn't seem like it would let me design the page layout.

Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

durpal is big is and powerful and feature rich, but its also big and bloated and slow. Most drupal sites take 3 seconds or more just to change a page.
