I need help developing an content management system for my blog website.
I have attached a short list of requirements and sort of an outline of the site's functions. This CMS is not unlike so many others that are out there.
The big thing is that I want the PHP code to be written using a template system like Smarty. I want it to be easy to change website templates like blogger has. In fact if you copied the template syntax blogger uses I would be very satisfied.
Obviously the template is built using XHTML/CSS, that is a must.
The main purpose of this site is just to share stories and photos with friends and family back home.
The photo album needs to resize images automatically. It will create two or three sizes, a thumb, intermediate, and possibly a large image. The pictures are arranged in albums. I also want to post video clips, maybe those need to be separated in a special album that is only video. Maybe I could have an option to post my own thumbnail for the video files.
Also I want to be able to syndicate this site so others can link to my site. I want a section where I have RSS feeds from other sites that show maybe excerpts of their latest story posted.
The messageboard thing and calendar aren't really that necessary.
The guestbook is a must.
