Support » Everything else WordPress » Is WP the right solution for me ?

  • Hi.
    I run a small site, yellowpages.dk. Currently my platform is .asp, but I want to change to MySQL and PHP, and ideally I want to use WordPress, because I would like to add some blogging.

    I like WP a lot, but it is not crystal clear to me if it will work.

    Please give your best advice.

    If you need more info, pls send me an email on [email address moderated – these forums do not provide support via email]

    Hi Krishna.

    Thanks a lot for the links. I have checked them, but installing and getting started is not my issue. But I can see that I wasn’t very clear when I formulated my question.

    My concern is more whether WP will be able to support the purpose and intended use of the site:

    Yellowpages.dk is of course a business directory. But instead of me employing a big staff to do the entries, I want the business owners to be able to :
    -Create a profile
    -Enter company info / logo image / product images / news (blog)
    -Update and maintain this info

    Instead of copying the existing directories, who all provide dull, text based info, I want a much stronger emphasis on the visual impression (logo, product images etc).

    So basically I am trying to figure out if WP is capable of handling a database with up to 15-20.000 companies (.dk is a small country) with multiple images and blog entries.

    Take a look at wordpress.org/showcase to know what types of sites use WordPress and how large some of them are. Based on that and your own assessment you have to decide if WP suits you.
