    The Best Web Building Tool for my Dad

    Hi All,
    My 60 year old father has no web design experience but would like to design and maintain a website. He would like to write inspirational articles about faith and the like on the site every few weeks.

    He needs some kind of an easy to use website builder; does anyone know of such a thing? It would be worth him paying extra every month if there's a web tool on a hosting plan that works well, or he could use a standalone program.

    Thanks much,

    Your best bet is wordpress (web content management software). Make sure your dad's web host supports it, then ask help on it's set up.

    Get a wordpress blog and install a good looking pre-made template (there's thousands of those available for free). Once it is ready, he will just have to update with new article through admin panel.

    I would agree that Wordpress is a very easy tool for website building and management. For simplicity, he can always start of using templates.

    +1 more for WordPress

    I've put a couple of friends that don't want to learn much on it, and my ~60 year old mom is using it to manage 4 sites for their businesses.

    WordPress is easy to use CMS, Web pages can be managed very easily. It has hundreds of plugins, user friendly and ready to use.

    Another vote here for Wordpress. It is very user friendly and most hosts support it.

    Joomla is more powerful. You can plug in lots of functionality to your site and its less "bloggy".
