Why not simply use WordPress for what it was created (as a blog) and then use Anthologize to export it as an e-book? (currently exports in PDF , ePUB and TEI )

“traininglogs” would just need to be a category (or maybe custom post type) on your blog.

Why do you need multiple accounts? To me, it looks like the perfect blog scenario :)

Thanks for the response!

I see what you’re saying, I guess I was thinking “WordPress” the whole time I was typing the thread out, LOL .

Gotcha, I was thinking in terms of having two administrators as the only ones who know about logging into the “logging system.” And adding WordPress as the CMS . Nevermind though, cause what I just said may not make any sense, LOL .

I was thinking about using WordPress to accomplish this, there’s really no reason why, I guess I could just use PHP or other script to achieve the same the thing but I’d like to hear other thoughts. I’m looking for a theme that won’t necessarily be used for a blog but merely a one page “data management” site.

I’d like to enter 100+ workout routines or training logs into the site through forms, saved to a database, and retrieved later. So, once the data is there a plugin or script would generate a “report” (or in this case a training log) into a PDF document for printing. The first thing I see as a problem is installing multiple WordPress accounts. For example, I would have mydomain.com and then mydomain.com/traininglogs. Any thoughts? I hope this makes sense. Thanks for any feedback.

@axidev

Great point about the bloggers who just write and may not have any idea of the backend of their site. Honestly, I’m not really envisioning the site to be too complex – a simple blog entry from the owner of the company with videos, text information, and some contact forms.

@danharper

The reference to cForms seems to be good. Yes, there are different events and those events will count on the contact information users provide. Which means there are various form fields that will change. There may even be 2 or 3 forms all going at once.

Oh, and as for a video managment system, I will be implementing Slide Show Pro or just have the owner upload vidoes to something like YouTube.

@kailoon

Thumbs up, okay, sounds good.

@tonyc

That’s why I’m not sure really how to go about it. I’m sure WP could handle it. Again, the site just may have several events going on and the users need to sign up or be notified through contact forms about those events.

I am new to Wordpress.

I am running a site for a small company that specializes in sports specific training such as basketball, football, soccer, etc. I like to keep things simple and sweet so I was thinking no more than 6 pages would be a good fit for the site.

But I would like to make it a possibility for the owner to post monthly, weekly, or even daily entries for upcoming events. Each entry could have pictures, links, attachments, videos, or other media related content. As a matter of fact, a video management system has been talked about before.

One of the other components I’m interested in is for the site to be able to handle multiple forms since the company has ongoing events for different subjects. But I guess the main thing for me really is to create the site and “hand it off.” Not necessarily walk away but make it convenient for anyone to update it.

From experience with WP I guess my questions are:

1. Could WP be a good fit for anyone who has no idea on how to update a website?
2. Could WP handle a video management system either by an application or plug-in?
3. Could WP do multiple forms for submitting information?

Thanks for any feedback.

From a technical standpoint, how are the templates different in Expression Engine, WordPress, Joomla, and others if it is coded in CSS /XHTML?

Didn’t mean to respond late.

The template would be for a business consisting of about 6-8 pages with news updates, RSS feeds, email sign-ups, and Flash media content.

This would definitely be a CUSTOM template.

Post edited. I am looking for a designer to create an Expression Engine template.

Hello,

I browsed through the site templates and noticed there were no examples for Expression Engine. I am looking for someone to do a custom template.
