Which Content Management System (CMS) should I use?

I am looking for a specific content management platform that would display themes for my application. Requirements are as folllows:

  • Any user can upload content, but has to be approved by an administrator
  • When the user uploads the content, an external application is called to generate a thumbnail

I could create this using codeigniter or something, but I would much prefer to use an existing system. I have experience with Drupal (seems a little bloated for my needs), and Wordpress (I'm using it as main website right now).

Maybe I need a plugin for WordPress instead of another CMS. WordPress currently blocks uploads of my file type. I can modify it, but it's a pain to update it every time WordPress has a new release.

  • I think I may just build my own wordpress plugin to do what I need. It already has UAC, uploading (though I'll have to add my extension), and I think I can use PHP to call an external Python script, if my host allows it. Other suggestions would still be helpful though. – bradlis7 Oct 27 '11 at 17:13
  • I would second your plan to write the plugin, if you haven't already. This will protect you from upgrade issues and may expose you to more options that are already built-in. WP has most of the features you are looking for. – brock Nov 21 '11 at 22:53

NextGEN Gallery for WordPress or maybe some other galleries

  • I'm looking more for a blog-style display. The image is not the main requirement, it's uploading content that I am looking for. – bradlis7 Oct 27 '11 at 18:20

What kind of content are you wanting the user to upload?

Have you looked at PhotoSmash or User Submitted posts, both of these enable user submitted content to vairious degrees, you could also fork one of them to better adapt it to your needs.

  • It's a custom theme for a program that I built. It's a zipped file with content. I'm not really looking at doing this anymore. This has been a while ago. – bradlis7 May 17 '12 at 21:18
