    Is SilverStripe right for me? Link to this post

    A client has approached me wanting to have a CMS for a new site.

    They need to add news(accept comments) - with thumbnail image generated, add/edit page content, add events, add bar opening times, bar menus, a Gallery and also want to bolt-on some existing PHP app that I have built on another site.
    Can SS do all this? I know the latter is a big ask.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    And finally, what is the best way to test it? Just practice with it, I guess?

    I would ask you to look at a website I am working on.

    http://developments.whynotonline.com/lacabana/

    I think this will answer all your questions.
