I've used Joomla, Wordpress and Nucleus in the past. Dropped Joomla,
because it was too big (for me) and maintaining the plugins (modules?)
was too much of a hassle.

The nucleus site is a nostalgic site, the Joomla site has been converted
to Wordpress. The latter can be upgraded from the browser.

Neither of these are installed by ports, all by source. MySQL is from
ports, btw, as is all supporting software, like apache, gd, whatever.
