currently I'm reconstructing my site (everything: new domain, new software, new layout). During my investigations on the net I figured out, what I need. And so I asked myself if phpBB can do following things:
- Weblog system
- Gallery component
- Community forum
Features weblog system:
- scheduled post
- attachments (mostly images) stored in the gallery component, but attachments not shown there before the article is released
- registration required to view any content there
- only staff members can add content here
- Registration required
- Attachments disabled for normal members, enabled for staff (but remote image linking permitted)
The reason for disabling the upload of attachments for normal users is that I cannot control otherwise the content. If it would be remotly linked, well, then it is not my problem, since on external content I cannot be made responsible for.
Is it possbible to turn phpBB2 into such a system? I've seen a couple of CMS-like systems, also Weblog MODs, but I don't know if they're good. Additionally, no examples are shown, and the time to test everything is rare for me. I thought with the help of the big phpBB2 community I might get a fast help.
I already tried other portal systems and similar things, but either the administration is too complicated and overloaded, or developing a unique template is a magic thing. phpBB2 seems to be more "handy", I think.
Any help/answer appreciated. I'm really sorry, if this post might not fit the topic of this forum.
