    • WordPress - was originally designed as a blogging tool but it can actually be used in more advanced ways for full sites.
    • Joomla! - a powerful CMS with a simple to use back end and lots of available templates to get you up and running.
    • Drupal - high performance, scalable CMS with powerful a powerful taxonomy system and true design flexibility. The back end is a little intimidating but can also be customized for the client to make it more user friendly.
  • Drupal Training and Support articles and podcasts are available at Lullabot and many of them are free.
