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?

Although I've yet to use all of that functionality, I believe Drupal can do most/all of that and you can still use Gallery 2 (module last updated in January). I'd suggest Drupal 6. The Drupal tech community is vibrant. I usually suggest Wordpress for simple sites, and it might handle this, but I'm not certain, and I'm not sure how well. Last I checked, image handling was ok, a bit clunky and counter-intuitive, but okay. Joomla is my next suggestion, because it is easier to learn. Drupal is what I recommend for any site that needs more functionality, or will need more functionality in the future, or is to have a longer lifespan. With Drupal you can also create your own gallery, if you don't like Gallery 2. See this example.
