Best, simple web design/maintenance solution

I'm getting involved with a local charity and am going to be helping them develop their website - which at the moment is just a Wordpress blog. It's nice and simple for them to edit, but isn't as visually pleasing as they might like.

I'm well versed in coding websites, but have no experience with tools which do it for you. I can write them something from scratch but in the event I leave, they'll need someone else to come along with HTML knowledge to make simple edits to it. I'm happy with just a browser and text editor to develop my sites but obviously that's not ideal for most people!

Any suggestions? Wordpress is nice as mentioned before, but it's just a blog basically. Would be ideal not to have to have every piece of information as a blog entry.

Yes, I know its slightly over the top.

Last year WebPlus SE received a gold award from Webuser.

It's free, but I have not used it though, so can not ay how good it is.

It looks as if it would be just as easy for somebody to learn the basics of html etc than using one program.

w3Schools have a great online tutorial series for html, css etc etc.

If I can learn from it, anybody can

Good luck !

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Will take a look at them.

Ideally I think they'd like to have several people updating the site, and possibly from remote locations so a web-based interface where they can just add stuff simply would be best.

What about Joomla? http://www.joomla.org/

I'm sure you'll be able to find a decent enough template to base the site of and just edit it from there

Joomla is a bit of a bear that I would advise spending a few months learning before working with. If you know HTML + CSS + PHP (the modules in Joomla are PHP/Javascript) then it shouldn't be an issue.
