Best solution for a website for a christening present?

I have a friend whose baby is getting christened. As a little present I'd like to provide them with an easy-to-operate website through which they can store and display photos of the child as he progresses, and supply news (essentially a blogging factor). Though I'll be setting it up and am pretty good at tech-stuff, the operators of the website (the parents) aren't so it'll need to be as simple as possible for them to do things like upload photos and post news of the baby. PHP content management systems seem like the logical solution, and I've looked at a few ideas (like using Gallery for the photos, and embedding it in a site) but I was wondering what do you all recommend?

What's your idea of PHP best practices?

PHP programmers: what would a well-laid-out PHP project look like to you? I'm a computer science grad student who's never used PHP for anything much and not in many years, but I now have an opportunity to write a small-to-moderate-sized site for somebody and thought I'd give PHP another go. I'm well versed in generally writing tasteful programs and I even have a pretty decent amount of experience with writing web sites using other technologies; what I'm really interested in is specifically how PHP programmers use the language in practice to make maintainable sites. For instance, what's the best way to separate content from HTML so it's easier to make site-wide HTML tweaks? What are the sorts of things that you wish someone had told you about how to build PHP projects?

how to display image files on a web page

Windows Explorer has an option to display all the image files in a folder in "filmstrip" mode, which looks like this. I want to create a similar method of display on a web page. I figure I'll have to (unfortunately) use frames to create the bottom gallery of thumbnails and have it scroll like that but I would rather not have to create a separate page for each full-size picture. I would rather the page displaying the picture be dynamic and just change the picture rather than refer the browser to a different file. I figure this could be done with some scripting language (PHP?) but I don't know much about that sort of thing. Can anyone help me out? [+] [more inside]

Password-Protection

Is there a script (perl or php, no MySQL because I don't understand it and don't want to learn it) that password-protects a webpage so that it can be viewed only by someone who logs in with a username and a password, and also logs that user, so that you can have a record (very important) of who's viewed the page? If so, where can I get me one?

PHP Refresh Scripts: Fork

Ok, so I have a php script that updates a txt file on my server with data pulled from an rss feed on Scrobbler. I have it set to refresh the feed when a user accesses a page on my site, and the local txt file is stale. There's (obviously) a noticeable lag accessing this page when the feed is being refreshed. My question: Is there a way to call the refresh script such that it would be its own process, independent of my pagebuilding script.

Are there freeware/open source as good as Gallery but that work on WebTV?

MoveableType

As a self-imposed php refresher, I've recently been toying around with writing custom movable type submission frontends for a few less web-literate family members (Basically just simplified forms that throw the user input into the MT mysql database). I've got everything ticking along nicely, but none of the submitted entries will show up until I log in and rebuild the site from within movable type. My question: Is there some way to either force a rebuild from a custom form, or automate a rebuild? I've searched the MT forums with no success. I'm using MT 2.64 with minimal knowledge of its inner workings. Any suggestions / pointers / links are appreciated!

Managing JAlbum

I know, I know -- not another web photogallery AskMe question, but: I've actually settled on the gallery itself. I'm using JAlbum. Having made the choice, though, I'm left with two questions:

1. JAlbum makes nice galleries, but doesn't create a top-level index page. (I could hand-code it, but my wife will be doing most of the updating and I don't want her to have to go mucking around in HTML.) The easiest solution, I'd think, would be just to reformat the directory listing into something attractive -- all I really need to communicate to the user is descriptive folder names and upload dates, but I'd prefer to make something more handsome than the standard Apache page. Can anyone recommend a particular PHP file system manager or other solution?

2. JAlbum's auto upload is ridiculously slow -- better just to FTP it. When JAblum makes a gallery, though, it includes a lot of stuff I'm not using -- icon sets, borders, etc. It's not a ton of space, but I'm going to uploading a lot of these galleries, and it'll add up. Is there a programmatic way I can stop JAlbum from including all this, instead of weeding it out before each upload? (I'm using the BluPlusPlus skin.)

Setting up a document archive of text files and links.

I need to set up a database-driven document archive of mostly text files and links. I want the archive to have a tree structure and allow the public to browse it without logging in.
