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?

Generally, this is the scope of what I've had rolling around in my head for years and have some partial implementations but nothing anywhere near useful.

Pinax comes sort of close, but doesn't necessarily have all the integrations you want and requires a little bit more futzing for the initial install than you may be interested in (you have to actually type some command line bits).

I have this feeling that when Google Wave comes into being, it will likely be fairly easy to combine all of this. Whether one should wish to... well, that's another question.

Pinax looks really cool, but is probably overkill for a personal site. If I was looking at recreating all those social networking tools, though...
