    I was assigned to redo my companies website www.smitherscustoms.com and make it a little cooler. Also maybe if possible make it easier for me to teach the bosses wife how to update it here and there when she has time like photos and news and stuff.

    I was thinking PHP nuke may be the route to go. Can anyone look at the website and tell me if PHP nuke will be fine or if I'm going the wrong route for this? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have any other suggestions please feel free to add.

    A lot easier to setup, a lot easier to use, a lot simpler to start with and then you can just add "modules" for whatever extra things you want to do (eg looking at the link above, you'd add some gallery modules etc).. basically just a lot BETTER all-round.

    PHP Nuke was ok 5 years ago, but Drupal is newer and blows it out of the water.

    Also, unless there's been any drastic measures since I last used PHP Nuke, PHP Nuke was VERY easy for malicious attackers.. soooo many security holes and problems it was almost a full-time job just to keep the damn thing patched and updated.

    Thanks for your time. It looks like I'll be using what you recommended.

    Malicious attackers were a big concern with PHP Nuke. I think you're right about having t patch and update the software would take too much time.

    Does anyone have any time to help me with my Drupal install?

    This is a little confusing to me.
