Recommendations on which CMS to use for project

I want to setup a site that will allow users to post lets say poems for example.

The posting form should allow the user to enter the title, tags, category, and of course the body of the poem.

When the user submits the form, a page should be created with the title as a permalink and tags as meta tags.

I would like to use a LAMP application for this.

Does anyone know of something that can do this out of the box?

Hey, welcome to WebmasterWorld TechieKid.

Almost every CMS app will do this out of the box. Pick one that you like and go for it. Check out CMSMatrix.org

On second thought, in most cases that I know of, you will need to add a plugin/module/whatever to get the tags into the meta keywords, but I wouldn't worry about that. If you have the posts tagged, that's easy to add in the meta tag aspect later.

CMS to check out include CMS Made Simple, drupal, joomla, ModX, etc etc etc. You could also choose to implement this as a forum as well.

I only mention those because they are all LAMP and they've all been mentioned recently. Look through some of the recent threads and you'll see more suggestions. Which one you prefer depends a bit on how much you're techie and how much you're kid ;-)

Hi ergophobe, thanks for the reply.

I assure you I'm much more techie than kid. I run my own web servers with LAMP apps like Joomla, Wordpress, SMF, and messing around with a few more.

I was thinking maybe a forum also but it's just not the same. Wordpress does what I want to do but I want the submission form to remain on the front end of the site and not the wordpress back end.

I will check out your suggestions.

Try using all headline new's Mini-Publisher. You'll need to ring them up and ask for the package.

it's free, simple.

another option is to use something like fckeditor.

Can't help you in a LAMP environment... if you were looking at Windows Server hosting I would recommend DotNetNuke. It will do all that you specified - and it's free (opensource). It would take me about 3-5 hours to completely setup a CMS site to do that.
