I am a designer / developer. My experience is in HTML/CSS/JS, some knowledge in PHP, MySQL, and Wordpress one-click-install and pre-made template.
I want to program an entire website layout myself, and I have two places/needs for content management. (custom WP template?)
A media gallery in HTML/CSS/JS that can populate with images from a CMS image upload.
A series of 'profile cards' with fields I can customize in the CMS. A name, a title, a bio, an image etc. And then be able to display that content in customized HTML/CSS.
These two features, along with a well-designed intuitive admin panel are the requirements. In your opinion, can WP get this done and still allow me freedom in programming HTML/CSS layout? Sorry for general question, I really need some reassurance bc I'm very new to back-end CMS setup.
