Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
My site is news oriented, so there will be frequent updates, and I want to be able to just type and add images without having to worry about copying the code for my main page, then recreating and saving the page under a different name, and then re-editing the code (which sounds like a needless waste of time). I just don't know how I'm supposed to be doing it.
Do people just go with custom templates for this sort of thing? I took a look at Joomla, but that went way over my head.
Usually, the key is to find a template that most closely resembles the one you have currently, and then modify as necessary.
If this will be a single-user news site (i.e. basically a blog), consider using WordPress, which is probably the easiest to install and modify of any similar application.
