    PHP-based Gaming Site: where to start?


    I wish to start a php-based gaming fansite that has:

    • searchable database of items, materials, etc.
    • displaying results in sortable/searchable tables (jQuery datatables)
    • user profile creation and management
    • maps
    • VB forum that links profiles with website profile (maybe shares login and cookie?)


    I need advice on where and how to start.

    Should I start with a PHP framework, or just use a User Login Library, and do the rest of the PHP from scratch?

    Overall, it sounds you wish to simply have something like a PHP-Nuke site and just create your own theme, and perhaps a module or two...

    I don't think I want the confines (or the overhead) of a CMS.

    I'm just thinking I'll try and use the VBulletin login and extend their profile for my whole site and then the rest is just simple.
