    So here's my questions. What would be the best code (i.e. phpbb, blog style stuff) to make a website that would allow users to login, and upload text, images, and video to a main page, almost like a calander of events for a community/neighborhood? can you guys give me some examples of what i could combine to make this happen? Thanks a ton in advance.

    I've installed Joomla for a couple clients and had (note, past tense) used it for my personal site.

    The biggest draw back I found with Joomla is it is a pain in the ass to get images associated with articles. I lost a client because they couldn't get the hang of it (they also didn't want to learn). For text, Joomla is pretty good.

    I switched to Wordpress not long ago and the image handling is surprisingly pretty nice and painless.

    I would suggest trying both to see how they do perform and how they meet your needs.

    You should try Drupal. Infinitely superior over Joomla. :)

    drupal, but if you're not a programming-minded person it'll be more difficult for you to set up than wordpress + lots of modules
