Hi guys, first post.

 

Been messing with PHP/MySQL for a few years, never done a project from scratch though and didn't really want to...so...

 

I need to make an application to run off of our intranet which will allow anyone with log-in privileges to create an internal 'order form' which is emailed to our orders department. The application will allow them to put customer contact details in, and also then pick products, sizes and quantities thereafter, with everything being retrievable via a hierarchy inclusion/exclusion (e.g. person picks t-shirt, database retrieves colours blue and green and excludes rest, and retrieves sizes based on colours, etc)...

 

So my question is, is there any free CMS around with modules that already exist like this?!

Hi

 

If u want to "learn" PHP then you can try from scratch... it is an enlightening process.. You can create the base classes and see how the process works....

 

If u want to deliver a product to a clients, i suggest u develop on a framework

If you want to learn php, you can go to the source, everything will be accurate and usually is example codes as well.

You can install wordpress and install a commerce plugin

http://wordpress.org/

 

wp e-commerce is the most popular one, there are others.

http://wordpress.org.../wp-e-commerce/

 

Is tons of plugins available, most are free, some are for sale or pro versions, you can also make your own plugins for wordpress if wanted to.

 

To me wordpress would give you a big headstart.
