I'm currently scouting the net to try and find the ideal software for what I'm wanting to do. I'm setting up another community site shortly (similar to one I've done at http://www.idolblog.com/) and need (and would love) some advice.
I have had extensive experience with MovableType and pMachine Pro and am wanting to have the following functionality:
* Flexible blog system
* Powerful forum (pMachine's is frustrating as there is no comment moderation, difficult navigation, no sticky topics, no custom sorting...)
* Comment notification (via blog/forum) by email
* Newsletter to members
* Integrated polls
* Event calendar
Is WordPress the right choice for me?
