Hi,

Quote:
Multi user add/editing system

You could either use the built in editor system, or use the regular Add function if you still want to validate articles submitted by your editors. Only logged in users could submit, and you would not allow users to signup. You create user accounts for your editors.

Quote:
Ability to add content without using HTML

This could be done with Globals. There are a couple of posts on the forum on how to translate \n\n into <p> or <br><br> tags. You really want the data in the database to be in text (so you can use it for other things, possibly email, or for print).

Quote:
Conditional formatting

This is built in to Links SQL. Each category can have a different template, or even different template set.

Quote:
Five levels of user:

If you are hiding content based on the user logged in, you need to move to an all dynamic system. This would be a bit tricky, and probably best done as a custom modification. If you don't care about the category counts (i.e. there are 5 links in this category), then it would be very easy to do, and could be done from the templates.

Quote:
Notify user by email of new article

Currently only a site wide newsletter is supported. It would take some modifications to make the newsletter category specific.

Quote:
Import current article list

Shouldn't be too hard if it's in MySQL.

If you have mod_rewrite installed and want to do it all dynamically, then we can make the URL's look however you like.

All in all, it's not a "out of the box" install, and would take some modifications to do exactly what you describe here. Not too difficult though. If you are interested in a quote, just send me an email.

Cheers,

Alex
