User car dealer website

I want to setup a used car sales website using Moto CMS or any other CMS template that will allow me to create custom fields for a cars details so that the administrator can add cars to the website through an admin control panel and then the cars will automatically be viewable on the website.

Is it possible to do that with the Moto CMS template or do I need to buy a different CMS engine that allows this type of custom form creation for a cars details?

Hello Hameed Bhatti,

I recommend you to take a look at our MotoCMS 3 templates with eCommerce plugin. It's our brand new product, which can be used to create 100% adaptive template, using the Control Panel (where all necessary features are presented). This templates are also 40% faster than WordPress templates and you don't need to have any programming skills to edit it, which will save you a lot of time in future. You can check an example of such Moto 3 Control Panel here.

Best regards,
Sam Clayton

Thanks Sam.

 
The eCommerce plugin is overkill for what I'm trying to do.  I'm not selling any product.  I just need to be able to list used cars that I'm selling.  I have a brick and mortar store where actual sales occur.  On the website, its purely informational in nature where I want to list all the cars I have for sale.
 
Each car has quite a few attributes that I need to upload everytime I have a new car for sale.  Attributes such as the following - see attached detail from another site that lists cars for sale - http://www.autotrader.ca/a/Hyundai/Sonata/Brampton/Ontario/5_24890457_/?ursrc=hp&urp=1&urm=4
 
Notice the I want to  be able to upload multiple pics for each car and then a bunch of fields for different information also needs to be added to each car as shown in the page above.
 
Let me know if MotoCMS supports this functionality and how would I go about setting up a form so that my customer can login into the Admin control panel and easily add/delete/modify cars that he carries in his inventory.
 
Thanks.

Hello Hameed Bhatti,

I recommend you to take a look at our templates from cars category, please follow this link http://www.motocms.com/website-templates/category/cars/. You can try a 14-day fully functional demo of any MotoCMS HTML template. It is running on our server. Please be informed that we will provide all demo changes for you after the template’s purchase, so you won’t need to start the editing process from scratch. 

You should submit a ticket to our support team in order to get your demo changes. 

Also your demo site changes will be stored* during 7 days after the end of your demo period.

Best regards,
Sam Clayton

I've started working on the demo version and have read some of the user guide.  

I have the following two questions:

1. I was able to edit the top horizontal menu and added a bunch of sub-pages under "Vehicles for Sale".  Now I can't figure out how to edit the menu to remove some of those new pages.

2. How do I setup a form so that I can add cars to the website with the following details, and also restrict the use of this form to only authorized administrators when a new car needs to be added to the site.

Required Fields on the form (the values after the ":" show sample data):

http://wwwb.autotrader.ca/a/Nissan/Altima/Guelph/Ontario/5_25949432_/?ursrc=hp&urp=1&urm=4

Images:  Multiple number  of images per car (at least 5, maximum of 20 images at a certain size, form should automatically resize to a certain width and height and compress the  image where required).

Kilometres: 91,780 km
