    i'm a beginner web designer and have been asked by a friend to make a website. it's meant to be a site where people can submit original writings (poetry, prose, etc) and read the works of others. of course, the obvious way to do this is with user accounts.

    the problem is, my coding knowledge doesn't really extend any further than HTML and CSS, and i haven't a clue to achieve the desired effect with those.

    perhaps there's a way to use that newfangled "login with facebook" button i see around these days. since it doesn't have to be anything really fancy, and is based around sharing text, maybe something resembling a forum would even get the job done?

    obviously i'm willing to learn as much as i can, and i thought here would be a good place to get some feedback on ways that i can go about doing this.

    thanks for your help!

    Seconded. WP can do all the OP wants and a lot more.

    Wordpress of any other Content Management System (Drupal, Joomla) would work. They're all easy to install, and full of downloadable plugins to help you do what you want.
