Looking for website full package "template" or content mgmt system including blog, forums, photo gallery, search function, etc.

I've been searching the web and have not had much luck. This is hopefully a way for a company I know to short circuit their dev cycle and get something up and running quickly that has a proven track record, the ability to be customized, and a reasonable price.

I was looking for content mgmt systems however that was fairly limited to just news-type websites, which this is not. This needs to have visitor areas, user only areas, a full suite of community features - the ones I mentioned above plus things like favorites features which let users save lists of favorite pages on that company's website, user profile pages, a "local" feature which lets users type in their zipcode and find things near them, etc.

This is something that should also have a good deal of customizability and/or have that as an added service that can be paid for as well by either the developing company or an approved vendor.

I'm going to keep looking, but thought maybe folks in the community might have some packages with which they are already familiar. Any pointers in the right direction greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi herkdotcom,

Look into Joomla (formerly Mambo): http://www.joomla.org/

It is a CMS, but an open source one and the user community has developed everything you are asking about and more.
