    Want to create a small private community website

    Which consists of a blog where all members have access to and can add to it. And also want to put in a forum for discussions and photos etc.

    Whats the best way to do this? should I use a free blog software? How well would it integrate into my design scheme?

    I'd probably go with Joomla. I'm no expert on it, but I think it has a a "bridge" that would allow it to integrate with a forum, like SMF or vBulletin.

    You can try it out over at www.opensourcecms.com

    Or, more specifically, here: http://www.opensourcecms.com/index.p...k=view&id=2097

    Thanks

    Joomla looks good and is probably the thing I need.

    Might try creating my own site though, and then adding e.g. Wordpress and SMF

    What do you think? It might be good practice for me, or Joomla could be a whole lot easier.

    Wow, that is one nice program there! I am getting to far ahead of myself though, cause I would have a thousand questions concerning that program.
