Blog software recommendations

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Wanting to start off a little blog with preferably these features:

- News (obviously)
- Multiple Authors (so staff can post news)
- News Archives
- Tagging (not that important though)
- Photo Gallery
- Downloads (not that important either)
- Custom Pages

That's it.. I've used wordpress before and while that was good I would like to look into some other suggestions people might have.


  • Hmm, I was going to suggest WP with Gallery 2 integrated... sorry :/
  • I know a few people who have jumped ship from wordpress to textpattern. They seem happy with it.

    I looked at it myself a few times but I am way too comfortable with WP right now to make the move. I have hacked WP enough to use it as a CMS on a number of sites so I'm sticking with it.
