Hi all,

Just wondering how to make a classifieds ads website using PHP. I'm
thinking it'd be much easier to use CMS such as Joomla to create
something complicated like this rather than coding from scratch. The
site will have login features, search features, ad listings for
selling and buying, ads for personals and cars, send emails to friend
features. Does this site look too big? It's smaller than ebay, of
course. So do you think it's better to code from scratch or use CMS
such as Joomla/ Mambo? What are your thoughts? What would you choose
and why?

I would use Joomla/Mambo and I would probably just use (or possibly
modify) one of the many existing classified ads components that have
alerady been written for it.
This is because I am experienced with mambo/joomla and because using
an existing component meanse that all/most of the work has already
been done for me.
