Dreamweaver is just a productivity tool. If you're not a web designer already, you might want to looked for a canned solution.
This sounds like online classifieds.
I did a Google search, plenty of results, but I have no experience with any of them.


You could make your own in Dreamweaver, but it wold require you to know some things, like how web pages work, how to design databases, and at least the concept of data driven websites. Plus all the ecommerce stuff.

Has anyone else made something similar?

Thank you for your response, I will research more towards this topic with the link you provided. I am still open to more ideas though.

I think Domedia has covered it there and given you an honest assessment. Like most things in life you can learn it (and probably do it in DW but I'd hate to see the surplus code) and do it yourself, buy a ready-made solution and learn to alter that to match exactly what you want to do or pay someone. Obviously learning it will take longer but you'll have a skill for life or paying someone gets you up and trading much more quickly so you can concentrate on promoting your site but you need a decent start up budget. Good luck with it :)

Indeed... Joomla with the VirtueMart component will do the trick... but still you need a descent understanding of HTML & CSS... I'm the last couple of weeks deep, deep, deep into 'headache' Joomla, so I know for sure :mrgreen:
