Hi all, I would like to set up a site where my friends and I can post reviews of books we have read. Amazon etc. already have this obviously, but I think it would be fun on a smaller scale where people mostly know each other. Ideally any member would be able to enter a book title and write a short review while giving the book a numerical rating. Then others would be able to also post their reviews and ratings. I know it sounds like a bulletin board, but I would really like to be able to display the reviews sorted by author or rating rather than in the order they are posted. It would also be awesome if I could calculate the average rating each book received and sort books based on rating or number of reviews.
A friend suggested that WordPress might be able to do this sort of thing. Another possibility is that I really need to start with BBS software and work from there (I see you guys run on BBpress and used to use miniBB). Can anyone give any advice about what software might make a good framework for building a website like this?
Thanks a lot!
