I looked at the site. Currently it is a sophisticated web site that looks good, presents a very professional image and user experience, and functions well.

I don't think that you are going to be able to duplicate this site without custom programming.

If it was my site and if I was not a programmer I would solicit bids from programmers to see if they could help you keep the current site but make it easier to use

Be that as it may, 2 seconds poking around the tells us that a free wordpress theme with a little css edits and some patience would get the job done.

Of course, if you've been at this so long you'd prefer drupal or joomla, bear in mind that.

Personally, I'd give it a shot on wp 1st but I'm a touch biased.

Nice site!

I think you could use any CMS you wanted to, but the question is who would be doing the development work? If you're planning on doing it, then you need to go with whatever CMS you feel the most competent at working with, and confident in the fact that it can do everything you require.

I'm from a Joomla! background and I can say that I know of extensions which could accomplish all of the features of your site - some would require styling and tailoring to your own requirements.

I'm not sure what your proportion of visitors from mobile devices is, but I'd suggest you consider responsive web design as a part of your redesign project instead of having a different site, but it depends on what your clients would need - again Joomla! can do either RWD or redirecting to a different site (or even a web app) and I believe Wordpress can if you choose the right templates. The flash would need to go for mobile friendliness too!

Good luck, and give me a shout if you need any help should you decide to go down the Joomla! route!

How could I sort out such intricate page groupings in Wordpress?

I'm not sure how to reach such depth with just tags and categories.

Question 1: Why will you rebuild the website? What's the goal?

Question 2: Why do you want to use another CMS? Having no documentation kinda makes sense but even with a CMS with full documentation you may have great difficulty customizing it to match this site.

If you will do this yourself then I don't think our answers will help you much because we have no idea about your skills or which CMS you may find more user-friendly. If you are going to pay someone do this for you, then it may be cheaper to continue with the current CMS.

Question 1 - To make the backend easier to use, it is a complete mess. And prevent the need for things to manually coded by support, since it is very slow.

Question 2 - There is no SEO options in the CMS at all. We have to do everything manually in the code. Also it doesn't support plugins of any kind, or blogging. We'll have to implement this stuff all manually, through the tech support.

I am very familiar with Wordpress, but it seems that it will need to be some tweaking to get it to work. Do to the way we sort things.

I know some Joomla.

Also I know this may be true...

But if I have some documentation at least, I could begin to learn things. Instead of emailing support and waiting a week.

Are you trying to set-up a store? Or will the content stay the same?

The site looks good already.
If you want to integrate this in any CMS platform. I would suggest you to have it on WordPress.

The content will stay the same. But update a frequent, and it is very hard to update with this CMS.

How would you suggest using Wordpress to integrate out intricent menu system? I sorts items rather uniquely.

Hi,

i have built such sites more than ten years ago. The only cms that i used back then was typo3. It has a steep learning curve but if you once learn it, you can actually make anything.

Wow, I've never met another TYPO3 user on the Warriorforum and I've been on the Warriorforum and using TYPO3 since at least 2005. I agree that it has quite a learning curve, but like you said, you can make anything with TYPO3. If there's another CMS more flexible and more powerful, then I haven't seen it yet.

Why don't you look at Drupal as the possible option? See how it is compared to WordPress. I think you could achieve whatever you want with this CMS, but its not so easy to use.
