    Software recommendation - Web development

    I have been presented with an opportunity to make a quick $500 by updating a local club's web page. I've been a volunteer "webmaster" years ago for a church and another non-profit. As a volunteer, they got what they paid for. If I am going to get paid, I'll want it to look professional, but I don't want to break the bank buying software, nor do I want a steep learning curve.

    Any recommendation would be appreciate. I have not commit to this yet, but I could use the money.

    Depending on the final product requirements I tend to cheat when I can.

    I *HATE* WordPress, but, I've had really good results with Joomla. Easily modified templates or you can build a new template from the ground up if you want to.

    Why reinvent the wheel if you don't need to? Work smart, not hard

    Even better idea.. wanna work smart? Sign up at GetAFreeLancer. Find a dude in India/China/Philippines/Russia and send your project off. They'll get it done for pennies. You'll still have some left. But you can spend your time with family and shoot some guns.
