Xaraya ( is a CMS.  I think that I read somewhere that it is an offshoot of PHP-Nuke.  If it was, it definitely took a different course than the Nuke systems.  Xaraya is highly flexible in its usage, thanks to the content management "hooks".  Its usage can be as diverse as Drupal, another CMS, with its all-encompassing taxonomy system.

Actually, after looking over the offerings of various image galleries and CMSes, I feel like an "evil alien menace from Startrek" has scrambled my brain.  It is all so confusing!  All I want is a nice little personal site to log my journal entries and display my images in an orderly fashion.  I like Xaraya and I like Coppermine.  I was wondering if anyone felt the same and has had luck with getting them to work seemlessly together.

No, Xaraya ( is a fish, not an evil alien menace from Startrek.
Yes, Xaraya ( comes from the same team that started postnuke.

It is in my opinion a very good system, but probably a little bit too complex for a normal user (if you want to use all the features - and that's really alot - provided).

There is no option at the moment to integrate xaraya and coppermine, but the two are similar in that they provide bridging possibility.
In Xaraya there is an authentication modules for the Invision board;
In Coppermine there are bridges for Invision and other forums.

So it shouldn't be too difficult to create a link between the two - having enough knowledge of both and enough programming skills :wink:
