Hi, to all. I am web designer working for a local business directory or index (yellow pages kinda thing). We publish a yearly printed edition as well as an online version which is updated regularly.
I just finished installing and fidling around with MAMP and Joomla and have thus far liked what i´ve seen. I am looking for a better CMS option than what we have which is quite buggy, outdated and difficult to manage and troubleshoot (I am not the author).
This is our site: http://www.directoriodevalle.com
If you have the time please check it out and be so kind as to answer the following:
What modules, plugins or extensions (if any) would you, as experienced Joomla users recommend to replicate this site both visually and in functionality? (Free or paid).
Can i build and manage something similar using only Joomla and its built in features?
What i need is:
I am an avid tutorial and forum reader, looking forward to using Joomla to its full potential, just need a push in the right direction.
What extensions or resource (if any) would you classify as "essential"?
Thank you for your time and knowledge, i will be looking forward to your answers.
