    Hi all,

    I currently own a domain, for more than a couple years now actually, but ive never been able to finish it, at first I was using swish and bought a template, but since the site design wasnt entirely my taste i begun to modify it to fit my needs, of course since I not a web developer and it took too much time to program the movies, so I want to switch to an easier platform where i can edit the site and all without too much of a hassle, that and the thing that iOS devices cant see flash, any suggestions on how to start?

    Hang tight for a few months - the software nazis at appul may give in to the Html5 tidal wave.

    Install Wordpress and use one of the many free templates or buy a template. Wordpress is pretty easy and there are lots of plugins you can use. I would say Wordpress is definitively more user friendly than Joomla.

    Yup, Wordpress is more non-developer friendly, while Joomla is more customizable, but takes more developement knowledge. It's kind of in between Wordpress and Drupal. And the nice thing is that it is such a popular platform, the resources are endless.

    What version of PHP are they using? And does your host package include PHP? I still find the odd host that doesn't.

    Depending on the site you want to make... you could use Webstarts. They have templates or you can make it from scratch. I did mine from scratch. You can see it here: www.paradisuspools.com

    Not sure what kind of site you're looking for, but HTML5 is the future. And if you want nice templates, check out themeforest.net, i use it for all my web stuff. Good luck man!
