I am searching for some software.

I admin a website for a fishing club. I would like to start an online

have a place to post text.  There they would also be able to post

That  text would then be added to that months newsletter and be
available to read. At the end of the month the newsletter would be
archived and made available for download. And next months heading

Does anyone know of such as I seek?

sent multipart to subscribers via Group Mail from Infacta.

It sounds like you're looking for WordPress blogging software.  You
can get a free account & blog at , or download the
software and host it at your own web host, or even use your web host's
software installation wizard to install it.

WordPress allows you to assign different user roles and to validate
users.    The "Author" user role can upload files, edit posts, publish
posts, delete posts and a few more things. The Subscriber role can
read (and by default, anyone on the Internet falls in this category).

The Editor role has more functions. The Administrator user is the

There are a large number of free themes ad plug-ins for WordPress, so
you can easily change its looks.  The free blog at has
limited customizability, of course.  If you host on your own site, you
