A property rental company is looking to have a website created that contains some editable pages that they can display of various rental properties. They would like to have a template that includes single large image (350px wide) with 4 thumnails underneath (100 px wide) and as you click on the thumbnail the larger image is displayed. They would like to also be able to post a rental property and then remove it once it's been rented. What would be the best way to create this and have it be able to be changed and maintained by the client usng Adobe Contribute. Appreciate the feedback and advice please.

if there are going to be many properties and the company wants a search function perhaps based on location , price bedrooms etc etc, you will really need to look at a dynamic site using a database.
as for the images a javascript /jquery slide show with the links chosen dynamically would be my approach. i usually name my images 1. jpg. 2.jpg 3.jpg for example then select the folder where the particular images are based on the title name (or id) from the database.

if however they really want a simple site where rthey edit static pages then yes contribute would do it but i am pretty sute it will not be a satisfactory answer for them if they are a busy company
