I am looking to get help developing a very usable company website in CSS/XHTML, packed with different features, for example:
Subscribe to the sites RSS feeds/embedded RSS feeds on the site.
An advanced form that gives the users a real-time estimate using radio buttons.
A Quote form to email me with details
A regular company contact form
Instant chat client.
CMS to liaise with my clients.
Developers are approaching me with quotes using Joomla, which i do not like the sound of. So was hoping for a point in the right direction with this, maybe I should hard code some of the features, or use different packages like wordpress for the blog only, or maybe I should build the whole thing on a framework like joomla or use a pre-fabricated CMS. I heard that lightCMS was good for designers. I really don't know what direction i should go, bearing in mind, i will be building onto this site, so i think Joomla may be restrictive.
this is what i have so far: http://www.nuttifox.com
