  • Hello,
    I’m the editor of a small high school newspaper. I have plans to offer an online edition of my paper for next school year (starting end of August ’04). To make my site relevant I plan to host photo albums of school activities, allow downloads of student made music, videos, and art. I would like a simple system to easily publish articles within different categories, maintain photo albums and directories full of digital media. I was wondering if WordPress would be the best software for something like this. Since I am partial to opensource software I thought I might start here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • WP would work great for publishing articles within different categories, but it currently doesn’t do photo albums/galleries, or other media storage. There are a couple of hacks/plugins for using photos within posts and such, but nothing to really manage that type of content. There are plans for the future, but (and don’t quote me on this) I don’t think it will have those capabilities by the time you want them. It may, but AFAIK, there isn’t anything even started in the code yet for this. Hope this helps…
