    CMS solution needed for version 2.0 of current website

    Hi, I've been looking for a solution to build my project, but I haven't quite found one that fits my needs. So far I've only tried MODX and Elgg (I installed them on a test folder and played around to see the results.)

    This is what I have:

    The Red Realm (theredrealm.com) is a website where I feature underground artists and musicians. It uses Light N Easy CMS with SQlite database. I manually add everything.

    This is what I want:

    Create profiles for the artists/musicians. Musician profiles should be categorized by genre, have an audio player for their songs, a picture, basic info, and links to their other sites. Artist profiles should have the same as Musician except instead of genre category, type of art, and a photo gallery instead of audio player.

    I would like a registration system for future artists/musicians that would have to be approved by me, to avoid everyone being able to be featured. (For the artists and musicians that I already have, I would create the profiles myself.)

    Artists and musicians should be able to edit their own profiles and upload content, with a set maximum of files.

    This is the general idea of what I want to build, it'd be nice if someone could point me in the right direction. I'm not a programmer, but I've managed to edit code to get it to look the way I want it. I just can't write my own code. I do have experience installing PHP scripts, modules, snippets, etc.

    My web server has PHP and MYSQL 5+

    Hope someone can help. =)

    It'd be pretty easy to do this in MySource Matrix.

    I do wonder if this thread might be better served in the CMS forum, though—while this is kind of a social networky sort of question, the folks in the CMS forum will almost certainly have seen heaps of different products.

    I wouldn't know where to start with Joomla or Drupal, or concrete5.

    Maybe this thread could be transferred to the CMS forum?
