Can radiant b used to achive this

Well i want to make a photography community site on the lines of
www.gfxartist.com , www.terminus1525.ca, www.phirebrush.com

Where the community votes for every subbmission from a artist and can
comment (like a forum)…

Now gfxartist has used probably SMARTY,php,and their own CMS.

terminus used Drupal,Gallery 2.Some one tells me that this combo is
heavy on resources and slows down sites.

Now that i have discovered Ruby on rails.I have decided to use it.
I was also pointed to Radiant CMS by ppl on the rails mailing list.

1.Can radiant b used to achive a website like gfxartist and others…
Or do u guys have other suggestion.
2.Can G2 be intergrated with Radiant (RoR).Is there any other photo
managment for RoR as good as G2.[G2 is gallery 2 is a photo managment
system]

pls post ur suggestion.

Radiant is not really designed to power community driven websites like
these. To be honest you are probably better off writing a completely
custom solution in Rails, or cobbling something together in PHP based on
existing systems which are great (like G2).

Radiant is designed more for personal Web sites or small business
brochure-like sites. It manages content really well, but it’s not
designed for public sites with integrated photo galleries and forums.

It’s possible that you could integrate something like Radiant with
Rforum (http://rforum.andreas-s.net/trac/) and Gullery
(http://nubyonrails.com/pages/gullery) or Tableau
(http://creativi.st/gallery), but honestly it will probably be a lot of
work as these are designed more for personal use than anything else.

free and clear.
