    Which CMS to use?

    I am in the process of converting a static local government site into a dynamic site using some sort of open source CMS. Which CMS do you guys think would be best for a small local gov site that a none techi can maintain?

    Wordpress was my first thought as well. Easy to install and use.

    That really depends on the needs of the site, whether you need a robust categorisation structure, and the type of content your need to present - Wordpress may be fine for a basic Government site but to give you a realistic answer you'd need to provide some detailed specifications.

    i prefer Joomla 1.0.x and joomla 1.5.x . they are all easy, powerfull and they have tons extensions.

    i have also tried drupal but it's difficult to use

    Wordpress is my new favorite for client sites, but like bluedreamer said, it's difficult to recommend something without knowing a lot more about what they need in their website.
