I just downloaded Joomla off of Dreamhost's one touch install panel and am tinkering around with it. However I am not sure it can do what I want it do.
Basically I am creating a community site where people can create their own profiles with pictures, recieve messages from other users, and create links to other users.
If anyone has ever used Joomla or knows a little about it or CMS, please respond. I don't want to invest months into building an infrastructure and then realizing it isn't suited to what my goal is.
