Time frame on developing a site

10 posts in this topic

Hi, can anyone give me a reasonable guesstimate on how long it takes to develop a site, given I have HTML skills but no PHP yet? How long did it take people here?

 

Thanks.

I am working on 9 weeks but I think I am an idiot. I have no knowledge just determination! What takes most people a few minutes takes me a whole day!

 

Good luck,...But with your knowledge of html and this board I am sure you will be up in no time. I have heard of people being done with a simple site in just a day or so.

Thanks Anj, that gives me the idea. Mibble, I want the site to look good but a fairly standard look is fine so long as it works...

What he said :-) It really depends...

 

I have been working on my store since the middle of February. There's something new to do everyday.

Anything more than a few days and I am itching to do something else.

 

You do need a little PHP skill if you want to make your shop look very different from the standard layout.

Well install needs two hours then if you want to modify the layout then its proportional to the complexity.

To that add an average of 10 days if you want to get 5 contribs up.

Install is about 5 minutes.

 

Contributions will normally take 15 minutes to an hour. Custom coding, template integration or merging conflicting contributions is really what takes the longest.

 

Some sites I finish in a day or two. Others I work on for weeks.

Agreed - but only when you have the experience!

 

Mine take anything from a few hours for the whole site setup, to months for a completely customised job.

Thanks everyone, that's a big help. Just needed some idea of how much time to budget...
