In the beginning of 2010 I bought PR4 gaming website with custom CMS (SQL/PHP based CMS integrated with vBulletin/forums) which turned out to have a sloppy code. Since than I was paying endlessly for bugs fixing, changing editor, upgraded ($400) to vBulletin Publishing suite and so on. It did not solve any problems. So I was told by a programmer I was working with at that time it's better to re-write code which will cost me min $3000. At the same time I was told there is another solution - switch to standard CMS like Wordpress or Joomla. I am not that tech person and I don't want to repeat my mistakes again so I decided to ask advice of the professional/experienced people - what will be the optimum solution in my situation?
- re-write code of custom CMS (too expensive)
- switch to standard CMS - which one will be better, how much it may cost?
- in a case of switching - how to make sure site will not loose PR, backlinks and so on?
- where it's better to hire a person who can do that professionally?
For any case my website is psbeyond.com. Right now I've got new strange bug that causes all "n"s to be replaced with line breaks and made majority of my articles unreadable. It looks like that:
t-family: 'Times New Roma
t-size: small;">Not o
ly is Tumble o
e of the best Move titles, but it is o
e of the best games I have played I"
I will greatly appreciate any advice.
