Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Blog software...

  1. #1

    Blog software...

    Ok, so I need to create a site which contains:

    - Blog entries (with images) posted by admin.
    - Visitors can comment on blog entries, but comments must be approved by admin before becoming visible.
    - Photo gallery posted by admin. Categorised into event/subject.
    - User-submitted photo gallery. Images would need to be approved by admin before becoming visible.
    - Small polls/surveys.
    - Perhaps also require visitors to create a login before they can submit any comments or photos. Not essential, though.

    This would take aaaaaaaaages for me to create from scratch, so I'm thinking WordPress... But I don't know if it has a photo gallery, or the ability to approve user-submitted comments/photos.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Wordpress has comment approval built in, and I'm sure there are plenty of photo gallery plug-ins. I think Wordpress is the best blog system out there, I try new ones all the time but always end up back with Wordpress. Might try posting on their forums to see if there's a common solution or package for your needs.

    Wordpress seems to work well Can you recommend any particular Photo Gallery plugin for it?

    Drupal as mentioned above would do very well, you could have the content types you choose to be displayed on homepage (your articles + your gallerys) then have a link to a page of the user submitted, it has user sign-up etc built in and has amazing community plugins
