So, I've recently taken it upon myself to abandon my abuse of frontpage. A couple years ago I started messing around with open source CMS's like phpNuke, Xoops and a few others while I was trying to make a place for my everquest guild.
Now my needs are different. I have a family website that I used mainly for pictures, but also had a link to my blog (at myspace and xanga).
I would like to expand the use of my website to my whole family. I would still like a blog, but I also want a gallery and forums. The gallery part is what seems to be tricky. I've tried Coppermine and Gallery2, and they are "ok" but they are a bit clunky, and trying to bridge them with Joomla, for example, has proven to be difficult. I have 100's of photo's to upload, and it is important to me to be able to do it quickly, and not have to go through too much to get them.
Is there something out there I am missing? I want three things from my website:
And I want my family and friends to only have to register once to access all three.
All the CMS's I've been trying seem to have a lot of module installing necessary. I would like this to be pretty simple.
Thanks for the help
