Last month the authors looked at the need for secondary Web sites and blogs at times and in places where funding is scarce. The inexpensive alternatives to Web teams and big budgets that they came up with included WCMS (Web Content Management Systems) and blog development offerings. The solutions included WordPress for blogs and Joomla! and Drupal for WCMS. You can set up and run a WordPress blog for free. Joomla! and Drupal take a little more to set up, but not much. All three of these programs can be managed by people who know word processing and are willing to spend a little time learning the programs' menus and controls. WordPress is the easiest, but the others are manageable. Blogs and Web sites can be indistinguishable once online, but if your site will be relying on a database, you'll be better off with one of the WCMSs.
