Now that I've made a portfolio, what's the best way to manage its content?

Hello everyone! So with the html/css courses. I've made a small portfolio with an image gallery. There are few images at the moment but as time pass, the gallery will have more images. So what's the best way to manage its content? (add, delete pictures mainly) I'm learning ruby and javascript at the moment. Can I make any use to these languages?

Any advise will be much appreciated! :)

Hi Romain Nim,

I think you need a CMS

One of the most famous is Wordpress which is written in PHP.

As you learning Ruby you'll find out more interesting some Ruby CMS

A mentioned above but i just wanted to add that you can learn WP theme development in two weeks. This is what i did in WP all from skratch, and learned it in like 2 weeks. WP is super easy.

Hey Konrad! That's pretty amazing website you have! When you said from scratch, you include the design as well? To be honest I was trying to avoid php, I tried to learn some a looong time ago and it hurted my head so much back then. Guess I will have to dig into it again to see how wordpress is working.

May I ask you what was your background with coding before you started the WP development?

From scrath i mean everything form the ground up. Well, i looked at inspiraction obeviously but Im talking more about the back-end.

HTML/CSS, basics of PHP, Basics of JS and thats pretty much it.

Once you get in the WP theme thingy, ud get it straight away how it all works.

Sure it gets harder, but i could do these sites i got on my portfolio with like two weeks of leanring. Its really easy.
