Image Galleries and the like

I want to expand my website by allowing users to upload and share pictures, videos, even short stories they've written related to the theme of the site, but I don't know how to get something like that set up and linked to the existing forum. Ideally I'd like something that allows them to add categories and tags to what they upload, and lets users search for what they want to see. Are there any add-ons or anything I can import into my current Vanilla forum that would give that sort of functionality? Or would I have to go elsewhere, and then find some way of adding a link within the forum?
Many thanks :)

    Welcome to the Community!

    What version of Vanilla are you running?

    This sounds like a lot of new functionality.

    Are you looking for out of the box solutions? Are you comfortable with writing php?

    Hello. Using Vanilla, and yea, it is a lot of work. I don't know how to write php myself, but I would be open to learning if I had to, after all, the site as a whole is a big project, so I'm expecting it to take a while and involve a lot of work on my part. Though, if there is a solution that works quicker and easier, that'd be nice.

    Seems as if the described functionality is the main concept of your homepage and the forum only some kind of addon. So I'd search for the software that gives you
    1. the most features you need or
    2. the basic features you need and is extensible

    Vanilla can be connected to other software quite easily (at least that's the impression I've got), so you might have a look at digg-like scripts and how they can be connected to vanilla.
    I've never used, but stumbled quite often upon Pligg. It might be worth testing for you.
