Can you recommend the best CMS to build the following?

I have a potential client that requires a website to be built that will need a customer area. The website requires a booking system that can show availability. This must also show the customer's appointments in their account along with a timeline of pictures of the customer, taken by the client. A start to finish timeline would be best.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Chris

We have built a number of websites with booking systems for both hotels and services. Please DM me and I would be very happy to work with you on this project.



I would recommend wordpress/drupal, it's easy to maintain, once the website is ready you can do the required changes without developers help.

Hi Chris

I have tried answering your email 3 times now, but the system does not appear to be working. My responses do not show up as sent, and they do not show in the email stream. Please DM me your email address and I will respond directly using our own email rather then system here.

Alternatively, please visit our website and send me a contact request from the site.




Hi Chris,

The best and secure way is develop without a CMS platform. You can use PHP/.NET for this and it will take only 3-4 weeks.
You can consider wordpress/drupal but I'm not recommending that for your requirements.

Hi Sreejith,
Excuse me but I differ with you. Building a custom system will require more than 3-4 weeks and it may contain lots of bug and it is also costly.

If you don't want to use CMS then I would recommend not to start from scratch, rather use a base system and then modify that with your programmer.

Hi Albert,

Thank you for your comment. Building a custom system may be more expensive and time consuming, I have that suggested based on his requirement. I assume he don't need a full CMS system, it's a booking website with some simple features.

Your suggestion also a good option - "If you don't want to use CMS then I would recommend not to start from scratch, rather use a base system and then modify that with your programmer."


If you are a layman on the subject, I suggest giving a check on wordpress. The system you want to create is simple and wordpress has a way of manipulating the database in an easy way.

There is no CMS in the market which can meet your these features. All you have to do is hire a programmer to change an existing system. In my opinion WordPress will be best for you. Because it has lots of plugin already in the directory like you want to create timeline of customers, you can do this similarly with this plugin.

Hello Chris,

If you speak about CMS then nothing can beat wordpress , wordpress is highly customization , you even search for wordpress themes I am very sure you might get exactly what you are looking for. One such place to search for wordpress themes is themeforest.
Other such useful CMS you are Joomla and Drupal even in Joomla you might find the required features for your portal.


Hi Chris,

I would suggest using and from there you can add a booking system plugin, from which your customers can see availability of appointments.


I suggest you to try Wordpress. There are thousands of themes available for WordPress. You can change the design of your website quickly. You can also extend the functionality of your WordPress site without knowing how to program. Wordpress offers about 10,000 plugins that help you add all kinds of functionality to your sites, like social media sharing, SEO, photo slideshows, and much more.

I am not a fan of CMSs at all. I prefer some good and professional services instead. For example, the one from You can get a really cool website for you fast and you will be able to edit it yourself then. I think it is a great solution

Thanks for your sharing. There are some places I have not seen in other places. It has helped me realize many kites that are very different from what I knew before. abcya
