Build content management system?

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.

You could help us out with ours, if you want. We need help. Go look at
this site:

http://www.publicpen.com/designer/

This is a demo site, for people to kick around. You can log in here:

http://www.publicpen.com/designer/mcControlPanel.php

username: designer
password: designer123

Log in and test the features. It's still a little rough, but you'll
get the idea. If you like it, we could use the help.

Sorry. Try it again now. We're using a server from Interland, and
Interland keeps losing the connection to the database server. We will
switch to a new hosting company soon, maybe hostway.com.
