I seem to have gotten things a little confused --- I am wanting to start a website that allows members to post articles, reviews, book etc. along the lines of hubpages, infobarrel etc., and thought that I could use a content management site (Wordpress, Joomla, or Drupal) along with a membership plugin to set something up.
I know my way around the basics of Wordpress, and have tried one membership plugin so far there, and I am starting to bang my head against Joomla, but the deeper I get in both these, (I know not very deep yet, but my brain is getting full!) the more I get a sneaking suspicion that I am barking up the wrong platforms.
Can anyone tell me what steps I would go through to do something like that? I plan for it to be a niche area but one where people can have thier own place to post, once they meet certain criteria (membership priviledges contingent upon being a good writer).
