OK, I will get this out there first, I am NOT interested in being a programmer, be it HTML or what ever.
So here is my problem.
I have a collection of old 1970s-1980s computers (about 400) +manuals + service manuals +books +software + peripherals etc.
What I would like to do is document what I have via a web page so that other collectors of old computers can see what I have and we can swap info.
I want the pages of the site to be highly structured so the page for the c64 looks the same as the page for the Osbourne 1. Some years back I may have used FilemakerPro to do this as it had a web publishing tool, now you need the "server" version and my wallet is not going to stretch that far for what is essentially a hobby
I had played with the wiki software in OSX server , but given that I would be creating potentially many thousands of pages it was NOT the right tool, there was no easy way to making page templates etc nor creating a site structure that made it easy to navigate. Anyway the HD died and I lost what I had set up. The latest versions are no better.
I have played with wordpress, quickly found a lot of limitations eg natively you can not add a table, so off I went to find a plugin. Then I found that you can not replicate pages, or layouts, eg if I have something set up for Amstrad computers with sub pages for the CPC464,CPC6128...etc I could not replicate that structure for the Radioshack TRS-80's (Model 1, Model 3, Model 4P etc).
It was suggested I try something like Hugo and generate a static site. This seems to be heading into an area where I have no real interest. I much prefer to spend my time rebuilding the machines and getting them into a functional state.
Other suggestions have been Joomla, and Drupal, but like Wordpress they looked like they would be easy to create blogs or sites with a few pages but not so easy to create something that is highly structured, easily replicated (eg for every computer model there will be a table with hardware information, eg CPU, Clock speed, Ram, Rom, Text, Graphics, OS, expansion, etc) + links to manuals, service manuals, software, books, other sites, etc.
I intend to run this locally on a spare Mac Mini I have floating around.
So, anyone have any other suggestions for a CMS or site building software that runs on OSX ???
