My wife is doing some work for a local charity partnership and she's been tasked with the website. Neither of us are overly technical.

At the moment the charity is using the 'built in' 1and1 web builder which is pretty basic but they've recently been awarded a grant to drive online traffic from BT. (not a huge amount but enough to cover about 10-12 a month or a lump sum)

Ideally they are looking for something really easy to use (where more than 1 person can log in and easily change things) and something that offers drop down menus, sidebars etc (all that can be added easily)

1and1 have recommended their premium product but it doesn't look fantastically easy to use and we've been told Adobe software is good but out of the price range I fear

Can anyone recommend anything?

Squarespace.com? If you pay a year upfront it works out around 10/month for their "Unlimited" package. They sponsor a lot of Podcasts which usually include a coupon code in the ad that can knock another 10-20% off.

Anyway, they give out free 2 week trials without having to put in CC details so you could give it a try first.

Might be worth approaching a few web development companies and seeing if they'll do it for a cheap rate if you'll allow them to plaster the site a bit more than would normally be considered acceptable with their site details

The problem with web design is that theres a very fine line between crap and good and unless you truely know what you are doing you'll probably mess it up

They've tried this but have failed miserably I'm afraid
