Just when I thought I was doing really well having built a web site with Google's sites application - see https://sites.google.com/site/oldbam/. One of my trusted advisor's introduced me to Drupal. Having just returned from Brussels it sounded an bit like a Belgian beer so had to be tried out. This is professional web site development made easy - and open source - i.e. free - which is critical to getting a high score on my marking scheme.
Check out the link to the Drupal site http://drupal.org/.
Its a little bit more involved than Google site building - though Google also hosts your site for you - free - which is another major plus - but the URL you get assigned isn't so memorable. I don't really care about such niceties though.
Sitting with someone who knew what they were doing Drupal enabled the building of a brand new professionally looking site in literally a couple of hours.
I believed you had to be crashing out HTML for months to get a site up and running. Technology, who'd have thought it!
