I want to start a new blog. Some of the features I want are: advertising for revenue, amazon associates, bulletin board, photo album.
My question is: Are there sufficient added modules from 3rd parties to simply use WordPress and these add-ons, or am I better off using Joomla+Wordpress?
I have explored joomla/WP but found that this combo does not allow WP to have categories and I think there may be other shortcomings that a stand alone WP would not have.
I don't know PHP so the easiest method is what I need. Any thoughts? Anyone using Joomla/WP with similar features?
