Can you advice me on the best approach and programming framework to build this site?

I'm building my version of Smarty Pig. A site to help friends and community to save. See https://www.smartypig.com/

I need some advice on building the project.

I'm wondering which approach to use.

Which do you advice: Wordpress or CodeIgniter or CutePhp to deliver the job?

    1. Wordpress:
    I'm making provisions for articles I will be publishing and the easy integration of Wordpress plugins to Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

    Can Wordpress be extend to run a site like Smarty Pig?

    2. Codeigniter/CutePhp/Laravel:
    If I use Wordpress for the frontend publishing, I can use Codeigniter/Cutephp/Laravel to do the backend members login.

    What do you think?

    https://www.smartypig.com/ is made by Drupal. I would use Wordpress with Avado theme, but that's just bacause I am used to it and always easily find solutions when I get stuck somewhere. I guess it depends in what is your current knowledge of web development.
    For membership you can use a plugin like Ultimate Membership Pro WordPress Plugin.

        Ultimate Membership Pro plugin will only handle the part to allow subscribers to jump to your protected sites.
        You will need to create a website like from your youtube examples seperatly.
        For forms creation you can use Contact Form 7 (free plugin).
        If there is more logistic to forms, you will need a custom solution. Do you know php?
