Use a pre-existing Content Management System or build my own

P: n/a
Hi,

I am relatively new to PHP, but I don't care about that. I want to build a
database driven Web site that is really a content management system that
allows visitors to register and log in and write stories for the web site,
and also allows visitors to vote on the articles. I'm thinking that maybe I
should use a content management system in existence already because it
might save time, then if i need to, i could just change the system to meet
my needs. I'm just looking for some input on what would be best. Any advise
would be appreciated.

Visit www.opensourcecms.com

I've used phpnuke and heard good things about mambo. Many others to choose
from.

What you're looking for is quite common and is already implemented in
most portal-like CMSs. Now if you intend to customize anything, you may
want to have a look at PhpWebSite, a young but very promising CMS. It
lacks a bit of documentation, but has the advantage of being *really*
modular.

My 2 cents
