Is WordPress the right tool for me? (5 posts)

    OK, here's the deal:

    I have a website (http://www.cartesiuscreations.com) which is basically an online graphics portfolio for my 3D art. Recently I've been toying with the idea of upgrading/updating the whole site and I've been looking at primarily two options: Etomite and WordPress.

    * The site will have lots of graphics organized in galleries (with custom thumbnails representing both the gallery and the individual images).
    * Each image will need a description (technique and software used).
    * It will have illustrated tutorials.
    * I do not need the ability to have visitors comment my images or anything else.
    * I will not blog.

    My question is: can WP handle this? I suspect it can since one thing that inspired me and lead me in the direction of WP was Natascha Roeoesli's site (http://www.tascha.ch/wordpress/), but I would like some further opinions. How does Natascha solve the gallery issue, for instance (under "Artwork)? Using a plugin or native WP?

    If you have tutorials, those are effectively blog posts.

    However, the rest of what you are looking for is really a photo gallery plugin or system. You could use one without wordpress for most of what you describe, or integrate with wordpress to have it more cohesive. 6 of one...

    I can't think of any site that I wouldn't want to use WordPress for, as long as you have an understanding of HTML, just turn off the features that you don't want, customize a theme and you are ready to go.

    Thanks for your replies guys, I really appreciate it. I have decided to give WordPress a try as it looks like it can do most of what I need. Thanks again.
