Hi,

We want to create a site that allows our managers to access files in folders for upcoming meetings a sort of intranet, but it will be accessed publically so needs to have secure logins. The structure would be menus, meeting minutes folders with documents in them so they can be reviewed etc.  This is not a blog, so not sure if Wordpress is the best choice?

Thanks

WordPress is a great choice, and has evolved far beyond its humble blogging roots.  The WordPress platform provides a plethora of functions, hooks and actions that are quite useful in the development of any site.  You can create a custom theme as well as custom plugins which would allow you to program any feature or behavior you desire into your site.  I've written several tutorials on the subject.  You might want to do some reading:

I probably should write a few more concerning the ability to customize templates, write plugins and create efficient AJAX calls, but if you need to know anything specific, we are here to help.
