looking for recs...

K and I are both ready to give our personal websites a redesign.

His is just a pretty straight HTML site. I've got old HTML pages, but the main site is Joomla 1.0.x and Gallery 2.

I'm not wedded to the tools I'm using right now. That said, my first path option is:
  • Joomla 1.5
  • Gallery 2.3
It's less than optimal, though. The Joomla/Gallery bridge module is pretty much abandoned.

So here's what I want, in order of importance:
  1. Easy web-based content administration
  2. Support for direct HTML formatting of content (rich-text editing not required)
  3. Structured navigation
  4. Easily managed user and group security
  5. Easy template management and design customization
  6. Fully embedded photo gallery with an upload client option (for photos I don't want to put on Flickr)
  7. LiveJournal Integration
  8. Twitter integration
  9. Flickr integration
  10. Delicious.com bookmark integration
  11. Librarything integration
  12. LinkedIn integration
Anybody got any tools or combination of tools they're willing to suggest?

Would this site be useful to you? http://www.genjipress.com/ This is run by a very long-time friend of mine and I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any technical questions.

I'm pretty well grounded in the technical aspects of web development ;)

That's a MovableType site, which happens to be one of the content management tools I don't want to get anywhere near (in spite of it being available pre-installed at my hosting company). It's from the people who bought, screwed up and abandoned LiveJournal.

Ah, gotcha. (I was unaware of MovableType's origin- eep!)
