Blog and social media based hubs, perhaps, that showcase the possibilities of web portfolio/research integration for academic and creative purposes. [more inside]

What is the best solution for developing an online community site in PHP?

I have tried Elgg and BuddyPress, but those solutions just don't seem to work very well, mostly because of issues with the templates. I want to develop an online community that is based around my online radio station. The community should have forums, chat, galleries, user search, comments, walls, and all the other basic stuff that comes with an online community. It needs to be completely graphically customisable I'm looking for the best solution that is under $600, but preferable free.

Which framework to use to build a Community website for my family?

Looking for community building tool to create a family website. I have family all across the US and would like to create a website where each family member could create their own profile, make posts, share photos. Like a MySpace or Facebook but something more private and to a degree less complex. Something that is just for invited users, something that is easy to use for non-technical users and something that I can host and administer. Open source solutions would be preferred. I have used wordpress, drupal, and joomla but each requires tweaking and modules, and lots of research to setup. Just wondering if there are any prepackages solutions or easier to use modules for WP, drupal, or joomla. Thanks.

Good F/OSS Community Media Sharing Software?

Are there any good open source media sharing/rating tools? This would be for the sort of thing where someone uploads WackyMovie.mov and registered users rate it. Then, the best movies bubble up to the top of their category, etc. (Plugins for WordPress also accepted...)

Wiki database

I'm looking for a community-editable database. Philosophically similar to a Wiki, but with some webmail-like features, including the ability to sort and filter various things, show and hide columns when there are too many to fit on screen, and edit a single record by itself, rather than the whole massive body of text.
