Drupal

Despite the somewhat scary logo, Drupal is actaully quite a nice content management system.

In actual fact Drupal is actually what they call a "Content Management Framework". In other words it trys not be anything specific other than a tool that is great at managing your data and allows us the developers to extend it to suit your needs. This means that as much as possible you're not forced into one particular route for your website.

It is built using PHP and using MySQL which makes it simple to understand for many web developers and very cost effective to both run and host.
