    Lightbulb Advice needed - listing project

    Hello everyone!

    I need your advices on the subject. Here is the situation.

    I am going to build a business listing website - a categorized catalog of businesses.

    Every entry (profile, business) will be located for example like this:

    www.mysite.com/Athens/Museums/museum_name.html

    So, every entry will have it's own custom page with info stuff: descriptions, photos, map, and so on - whatever I add there

    I know, there exist tons of directory scripts, but none of those I have found allow me the following:

    1. Have a custom page for every entry. I mean really 100% custom.
    I want custom header/footer, custom design/layout and so on.

    For example, I want to be able to create a custom design template and use it on www.mysite.com/Athens/Museums/museum_name.html only, and other pages (entries, profiles) will have another templates.

    So, you see, I want every entry to be like a small separate 1-page website

    2. If possible, I want to give users administrative access to their profiles, so that they can update texts, graphics, etc.

    3. I want special modules available for those entries (profiles), like Google ads box, eBay items box, Amazon items, and so on.

    So, I haven't found any suitable solution
    Things like PhpMyDirectory always put their header/footer and left/right columns and only the central part of the page is used for detailed listing.

    Well, installing separate CMSs for every entry is a pain - I'm going to have 100s or even 1000s of entries.

    Is there a good solution available?

    I was thinking about TYPO3 or TYPOLight or MODx CMS - they seem to allow custom HTML/CSS pages, and also allow many users with different priviledges...

    Can anyone share some valuable information?

    OK, I think this thread may be closed
    I'll have to look further on myself, or start writing from skratch...
