I am brand new to coding and WordPress world and did a Google search and found many reporting WordPress to be the way to go for websites ...etc.
Yes I read that WordPress no longer a blog platform only but now considered a framework for almost any kind of websites.
My problem is that I want to do my website and I can not find my way out with it.
To be honest I've knocked the Drupal and Joomla doors 1st but found things a it hard and tough so I am here after many Google reviews as mentioned earlier.
Please do not laugh at me if I am saying that I do looking forward to be an expert with coding and get this website done.
Where exactly I should start!?
Regarding my website:
It is an educational website for a local university and I think about trying to do it myself instead of hiring someone else to do the job for two reasons:
1) I've plenty of time for the time being (about free 4 hours each day).
2) Lake of finance to pay the coder as it is gonna cost a lot of money that is not considered in the current budget and been postponing this website for 3 years so far, so I want to make it done.
The idea of the website is to make a big CMS or portal for everything in the university including the lectures (video-audio) and some of the books archive to be as local intranet and accessed remotely.
I did read that creating pages is ok in wordpress but I want to make everything in tables and not pages one above another.
Also when I add any new article or post I need to include audio and video files that is hosted locally or from http://www.archive.org where we place most of our stuffs.
also want to make all topics and professors included as some of them give lectures to various students in different classes ...etc
Also want to make it by Topics itself ...etc
so can I make such a thing with wordpress!?
Sorry if I am not good with English as it is not my native.
