Looking for a script or package to create a series of dating sites on a dedicated server

Hi,

I am hoping that someone is able to help me - I am looking to create a series of free online dating sites, themed in categories for example "straight" "bi" etc.

I have a dedicated server available for this project, currently running Fedora but I can change this to another flavour of *nix or Windows if necessary. What I am looking for is a package or script to run the site..... preferably one with professional templates or themes available as I am no coder or graphic artist.

So far I have heard mention of PHPIzabi, OSDate and Boonex, all with mixed reviews. I would like an integrated forum and chat function if possible

Any suggestions or advice appreciated - this is not a big budget project as it is designed to be a free site although a product that has the ability to offer subscriptions would be good

Thanks for that, this has certainly given me an option to explore I wasnt even expecting - I looked at Drupal as a simple cms system and certainly not able to do that much.

Do we think this may be a better way than OSDate or PhpIzabi route etc? Do we know how much experience I may need to do this

Thanks so much

>> Do we know how much experience I may need to do this

ofcourse you need to know php programming medium level to install and do by your own ... OR ask hosting company or some one ...

Thanks Loqu - sorry I didnt understand your comment about OSDate / PhpIzabi - are you saying these may be better suited?

Thanks again
