    Hi, I have been asked to make a website for someone and they want it to be a directory for people. So a person would pay a premium and they can then create a profile. On their profile they would have contact information pictures an maybe some other media. The users can then browse the website and search for people by location and view profile.

    I have extensive knowledge of Drupal, WordPress and various other CMS.
    I also have beginner knowledge of HTML, CSS and MySQL along with some JS.

    Could anyone please suggest a way to tackle this website? I was thinking a dating CMS or customer Drupal theme.


    Cheers

    The first question I would have is how many people do they want you to design the site to have? You may also want to preface this with the large the number the more expensive the site, since the answer is ALWAYS I want/expect millions of people.

    The other thing is do you want to make them come back to you? Create a site in WP and flaten it to HTML (with a WP to HTML plugin), then they have no choice but to keep using you. I'm sure the other cms's have methods to flatten them also. Just a suggestion.

    Best Wishes
