In particular, I am looking for the following features:
- allow me to post website news on a regular basis
- allow visitors to comment/discuss each news item
- allow visitors to leave feedback
- allow me to play with the website layout in a modular style
- allow me to put polls on website
any suggestions welcome!

oopss. we use JSPWiki in our company, very good :roll:
what you guys are suggesting seem pretty heavy and requires full administrative access, is that right? so far, the closest match are jbossNuke, and CoFax. but JBossNuke is out because my isp doesn't have jboss. Anyone has experience with CoFax?
Is PHP-Nuke what most people use for content publishing? I know most website use PHP, but it is hard to tell what engine behind it. I really want a JSP solution instead because I am more familiar with JSP (or I should say I don't know any PHP). and I can build my custome tool with JSP.
I will keep looking. And if anyone has better suggestion, please inform.
I setup a few websites for news publishing using "pmachine" (www.pmachine.com), in my opinion it is an excellent tool. It had all I needed plus more. I was in a predicament, where the site had to go live in 2 weeks and quick decisions had to be made, I do not at all regret choosing pmahcine, btw, this is a PHP tool. Their claim is you do not need to know any PHP to get going and I agree unless you want to start making major changes to the functionality.
