    Hey gang

    I know there are several open source social networking scripts out there, but which one is the easiest to customize?

    I'm wanting to build a niche social networking site, but skim down a lot of the features of an existing script, and add a couple features of my own. So, the open source script can be a pretty simple social networking script.

    The big thing for me is being able to redesign the layouts designs of the pages for the site.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    With joomla is it easy to add/edit profile layouts and profile information fields?
