    Hi all,


    I am wanting to put together a photo website - kind of a memoriam - that people can view photos and also comment on them. But I'm not sure what direction to go. Or for that matter, how many options are out there. (That's why I look to the gurus!)

    I am looking for a basic photo website template that will show fairly large thumbnails, or better yet, just a whole page of photos that can be scrolled. Also, I would need it to be so they can comment on any particular photo.

    Keep in mind that most people visiting this website will probably know VERY LITTLE about computers and navigating web pages so that's why I need it to be simple.

    The few options I thought about were;

    Wordpress (but I think you can only comment at the bottom of a page or article)

    Flickr, or some other photo hosting site. (looks kinda busy - I want it simple).


    Oh and the last thing - I'm NOT a web designer. I CAN get around basic coding (I did a website in XsitePro), but as far as fancy stuff - no.


    Thanks all. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

    Seems like you've been left alone on this one jodyberry - I just found your post whilst looking for info about flickr.
    I think your best bet with this would be either some kind of dedicated photo software, like gallery2 http://gallery2.org/ or using wordpress/joomla.
    Wordpress is probably easiest for the new designer though, and I think it can almost do what you're looking for with its blog view and showing comments. I'm still fairly new to Wordpress, but I'm sure there are other plugins for it to make the task easier.
    Best of luck!
