    My boss came to me asking me if I could create a website for his business. He just wants something simple that people can go to and read about the store and see what we carry and read a little about us.

    He'd like to be able to go on easily and update it like a news area to list sales and a way to reach out to people reading the website.

    He's not very good with computers so going in and coding something to make a new news post is out of the question. I was thinking something like PHP-Nuke but I'm pretty sure that's out of date.

    What can I use? Is Word Press something that'll work for this?

    Is word press fairly easy to install and modify?

    I know some PHP and I have messed around with os commerce and php-nuke a while ago.

    Wordpress is definitely what you want.. then just find a theme and tweak it to suit.. http://www.wordpress.org/extend/themes (there's free ones there, or there's a section linking to premium ones.. $20-50 for a kickass theme and just tweak it a bit)
