    Advice for complete novice

    My Group has a website http://www.hartburn-scouts.org.uk/ this was made by a former member.

    I will be getting the admin details soon and am hopeful that some of you would suggest the best or simplest software, design tools, to get me started as a few things need altering and I have no idea how to even start....

    And there we have it. We are Scouts, regardless of race , creed, colour or sexuality... If we can agree on that, then what more do we need? 5/4/2014

    The best thing that you can do is to blag someone else's site.

    Your site has the basics, but is very plain. Nothing wrong with plain if it is laid out right.

    Having played around with HTML for years, and dabbled with various editing packages, I'm currently settled on Joomla.

    It is a sod to get your head around intially, especially the initial installation, but once installed, you can start to substitute the Joomla elements for your own, and change the templates to suit your needs.

    Once you grasp the basics you will be flying pretty quickly adding extensions that allow you to run just about any application you are likely to need.

    I started with the SEScotland template available on Escouts, and have juggles it to get initial templates for two sites, the third we created our own template, which will be available as a package soon for anyone who wishes to use it.

    If you like I will create a design for you then all you would have to do is insert text in the right places.

    Ive never gone a bomb on sailing - I do recall having a few close encounters with the boom swinging out knocking me into the water. Prefer my feet on dry land, but if you need any help, work and other commitments permitting then im happy to lend a hand.
