Basically I'm starting from scratch to create my company's site. I already made a protocol HTML5 web template and it's good and all but that's just design.
What I'm more focused on now is the backend, the core if you will. I've been considering 3 options mainly and I was hoping for some opinions on which one you think would be best.
- Integrate community software into already made HTML template (eg. phpBB)
The company offers multiple services (including web hosting but that's located on a separate domain using a billing software so that service is setup already), will be selling multiple products including both physical and software digital downloads. It'll also feature a community forums and an index of video tutorials.
Now from that description of a community, e-commerce and video index what do you think would be my best bet out of those 3 options? Keep in mind when I say integrate phpBB for example into my template, I'm simply using phpBB for the account system (registration, login, logout, hold customer info), all other scripts would be coded by myself using the phpBB account system to hold info obviously except for the forums itself which would be phpBB.
EDIT: Just wanted to add in that I have experience with Joomla but not with Drupal so that would most likely have a big play on time. As well for those who haven't integrated phpBB before, it's very easy to do so and is easy to customize to your needs
