    Hello everyone,
    SEMrush
    I am in a real confusion regarding one of my websites. I have designed its pages, please check them here:
    www.hassan-ahmad.com/MyDealScout/index.html
    www.hassan-ahmad.com/MyDealScout/findforothers.html
    www.hassan-ahmad.com/MyDealScout/requestform.html
    www.hassan-ahmad.com/MyDealScout/requestsent.html

    What I want to know is that can I use wordpress script for this type of website? Its actually my client's website.

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Hassan Ahmad

    Wordpress could be made to work in CMS mode for a website like this but I don't know if you would be happy with it. Joomla or a custom written CMS would probably be a better bet.

    If you know your way around PHP, HTML and CSS it won't be a problem at all, but it might take a while to get your hands around wordpress which you won't have if it is a clients website.

    Its possible in wordpress but I think you may have an easier time using joomla.

    Joomla is the best cms for the websites which was mentioned by you. So, try with joomla.

    People extoll wordpress all the time as a CMS - and for a FEW things it's OK.

    But you would really benefit from getting down and learning joomla or something similar. The sky is sort of the limit with something like that.

    Yes, your server is apache and using PHP as the language. As long as you can also use MySQL database, there will be no problems using Wordpress. Double check with your webhost.
