Joomla vs. PhpNuke vs. Dragonfly vs. whatever else

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I've used CGPNuke, DragonflyCMS, and most recently Joomla.  However, I
am NOT experienced with any of them.  I have a hosting package from and they give me FTP and SSH access (which I am
moderately familiar with).  I have up to 50 MySQL databases and I've
got 2 domains registered with them.  The one I am asking about today is

Right now I've got Joomla loaded on there and I'm trying to configure
Gallery2 on it.  I don't think I'm doing something right.  Here is the
working URL for it,

When I went throught the installation wizard web page for Gallery it
asked me lots of questions all of which seemed to succeed just fine.
Then it asked me which modules I wanted (because I downloaded the
"full" version from their website), and I picked a TON of them.  I then
downloaded and installed throught the component install feature of
joomla, the gallery2 integration.  This also seemed to go ok.

My problem is, I don't seem to see anything working in gallery.  There
are no albums, I see know way of creating them.  In the Joomla admin
page there is a component administration page for gallery2, but it
won't let me see any modules or anything, just set up users and
configuration stuff.

I guess what I need to know is, if I'm just setting up a website for my
wife and I to post pictures and personal news to, is all of this worth
it?  I've set up a dragonflycms site with coppermine and it was darn
easy.  I don't like coppermine all that much though, and I know my wife
won't like it's low tech interface.  She's used to uploading pictures
to snapfish and Walmart, and I thought that Gallery2 with some of it's
modules would give us a really nice UI.

If anybody has any tips, hints, suggestions, ideas, or advice... PLEASE

Yeah, have you tried the Modules function, I use Mambo on a site I
maintain and I am thinking that you should be able to do what you want
from with in modules.
If not then try goinn in through the front end of the site.
