You might also look at Plone (http://plone.org).  Open source, extremely
flexible, allows for nesting and layering of control.  Supports wiki,
blogs, calendars, and just about everything else because it has a
community of programmers that donate to the site.  Also, you can run it
from Windows, Mac, or Linux.  Doesn't take a programmer to learn how to
do it all, but it would be helpful to have a programmer involved.  They
are just about to release a new release that integrates a lot of the
things you will want right into the install package.

I realize this probably is a bit off topic, but then again, I wouldn't
a better place to ask this question off the top of my head.

For a small project I'm looking for a content management system with the

following characteristics:

* open source/freeware
* create/maintain a fair amount of static content
* ability to create and navigate that content in sections/categories
* but also provide news in a blog-like section
* integrated image gallery
* preferably integrated forum

This will run on a FreeBSD server that supports MySQL, PHP and Perl. I'd

prefer a dynamic system that generates pages on the fly from the db, but
can work with a system that generates static pages.

I've got the project running with MovableType (except for the forum of 
course) but because of the large amount of static content, I'm now 
maintaining more than 30 page templates and that's only going to
I'm looking for something a bit more manageable :)

Recommendations and advise welcome.
