I'm planning a web-based searchable photo database. Any suggestions for what software to use? I've seen stockbox. I want an opensource community content management system, with the potential to add customised functions and fields to the database.
I would recommend building it using WordPress using some of the custom photo gallery templates which are available.Lot of sites allow one click installs for word press and then you can easily load a custom plugin on to it.Here are some plugins to consider :
Another alternative is using Drupal but I wouldnt recommend it unless you have some prior programming experience.
