Hi peeps, I was wondering if you can hep me at all with this.
I have to create a website for a client, he's a drummer and he wants to promote himself. He gave me a rough idea of what he wants - here some examples (sorry for the links but it is just to give you an idea): http://www.peteraybiggin.com/, http://www.rodneyholmes.com/fr_home.cfm, http://www.brianblade.com/, http://www.drummike.net/ - and I was wondering what's the best way to proceed. Should I develop it from scratch or should I use something like wordpress? The thing is that I will only build the website for him, I will not maintain it, it will be him updating it and adding stuff (probably every week) to it, so I am thinking about using wordpress. He will be adding content, videos, pictures, and I need something really easy he can use to update his website, something he can learn very quickly (he's not into IT by the way)
What do you guys reckon?
The thing is I don't know how much freedom wordpress can give, in that, can I code from scratch, get my own colour theme, use my own templates etc.
ANy help is very much ppreciated as usual
