    Forum/Wiki/Blog combo

    Hi, not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but lets give it a go

    I'm looking for a PHP-based package that can provide me with a forum, a wiki, and the ability to give each user that wants one a blog, all using the same user login details.

    I know that a few forums (such as vB and IPB) offer blog plugins, but I've yet to find one that offers all three.

    To confuse matters even more, ideally it should be reletivly easy to intregrate with CakePHP's Auth (or other user management system) so that all the users of the site only need one set of login details.

    A tall order I guess, but hopefully someone will be able to help

    Thank you

    Usually if you try to integrate one technology inside of another, the results are lacking to say the least.

    What many people end up doing is going with a dedicated app for each system (blog, forum, wiki, etc) and using login bridges to share login information.

    For example, there are login bridge plugins for SMF (a forum) and wordpress.

    I've attempted such login bridges myself, but have often felt a little let down by the results.

    I'm thinking on going down the vBulletin route at this point as I've got a lot of experience using it, and the blog system they sell seems pretty good (although maybe a little overblown for my purposes), or IPB for the same reason - then try again with the login-bridge thing.
