I'm looking for blog software for a new community site we have just launched and have very specific criteria:
1) it must be hosted (where the software is regularly patched for security vulnerabilities)
2) it needs to support multiple contributors with a single account
3) we are happy to pay a reasonable fee to have our own domain, no ads, our own design, etc., but not the $500 /mo that wordpress charges for VIP hosting.
The Wordpress Multi User platform looks very close to what we'd like - for example what TechCrunch has - but the pricing we've seen is beyond our resources for the VIP type accounts.
We were also using movable type before, but found its usability was horribly frustrating and made simple things like displaying .
Recommendations greatly appreciated!
