    Hello! this is pretty clear from the headline that where I am coming from and what I am expecting on my new CMS adventure. So lets cut the chase and straight to the point.

    Before I start writing what I am looking for my new CMS, I would try to write simple terms as I explain my requirements but please forgive me if I use Drupal terminologies as I am new to wordpress and have no idea what they called here.

    MY NEW PROJECT:
    online model management agency

    What I want?

    LOGIN
    1. Four different types of registration/signup forms for different age groups. Four types? because each forms contains different questionnaire (form fields). incl. image and terms and condition page.
    2. After registration/signup person will be redirected to customize URL or customize msg. modal window.
    3. Automatic mail to user when the admin approves registration/signup.
    4. After login user will be redirected to their profile page.
    5. Admin can be easily hide certain profile fields from the public view.
    6. User we be able to delete his/her profile/account.

    PROFILE PAGE
    1. One page profile and one page for user profile edit.
    2. Photo gallery. gallery will also visible on profile page. amount and size can be easily limited by admin.
    3. Visitor will be able to multi rating on profile. WHAAT??
    i.e.;
    Beautiful ******
    Sexy ******
    Photos portfolio ******

    etc etc. Please note this multi rating will different on different age groups. will be easily change and hide by admin.
    4. Registered Visitor will be also able to mark/flag/select different profiles gallery images for comparing.

    REGISTERED VISITOR
    1. Registered Visitor will also see those selected/marked images on a separate page and this page link or only images can be sent to someone via email
    2. Registered visitor can also send a query about the particular models through model query page to admin.
    3. Registered visitor will be able to maintain his/her favorite models.

    DETAIL SEARCH PAGE
    Visitor can search models through different criteria i.e gender, country, age etc.

    MODELS page
    All models will be displayed along with short description NAME, AGE, COUNTRY the drop down menu for only male, only female, only childern

    CONTACT PAGE
    simple email contact

    BLOCKS
    top models (selected by admin)
    new models
    most rated models
    Subscribe now form

    and some static pages.

    and HTML newsletter possibility

    SO NOW

    Is it possible to achieve something like this on WP?
    What modules/plugins I needed (please tell me the names or links)

    Can WP has something like:
    Drupal modules
    VIEWS
    PANELS
    CCK
    IMAGE CACHE
    PATH AUTO

    Some people might ask well if iam so impressed by Drupal then why I am looking for WP. So I would say above I wrote the advantages of drupal 6 but of course there are some disadvantages using drupal.
    Drupal claims their CMS is best community system out of the box the biggest part of the missing puzzle is Gallery. It has no perfect solution for user gallery and second which is most important as designer it has no nice templates available, first I thought I will develop my own drupal template but forget that why other designers, those who are developing templates for WP and Joomla but not for Drupal 6. Why is that? tell me if you know

    If you search with Google for Open SOurce Model Agency website script you will find quite a few options, and I remember some time ago seeing one that was for WordPress in the form of a premium theme with additional plugins for handling at least a good chunk of what you're asking for.

    Once you have the basics, getting them extended to add more function is fairly straight forward if you employ freelance programmers, which you can do from a number of sites including from the correct section of the WordPress forums.

    Thanks for your swift but unfortunately not a helpful reply. My question was about whether wordpress is the solution but you took it somewhere else. I am aware of google's searching capabilities. If you think I have wrote that long and detail post without going on google then I am afraid my friend your mistaken. Give me some links. thanks

    I suggest you find, employ, and consult with professional design services who can meet your demands based purely on a monetary relationship. Clearly, mere volunteers will never be capable of meeting your expectations for free. Here's a link for you.

    Well, I would assume you can do this with a few plugins installed. The only thing that has me stopped at the moment is the registration process, simply because I have not used the registration portion on any site that I have made. As for the plugins, I am only guessing here but it sounds like you can use....

    HI bdeaton108
    Thanks for the reply after reading three replies its getting clear that wordpress is not the solution unless I have a good knowledge of PHP to write my own plugins. I have developed a test site using Drupal 6 and achieved all requirments (mentioned above) using modules/plugins but the only think I am not satisfy with the gallery and theme. Thanks anyway, cheers!
