Trying to get my daughter into web development/design just so she has another feather in her 'media' hat, and think that Joomla would be a good way for her to go seeing as it so widely used these days.
Appreciate that there is a 'coding' side to web development, but that isn't a route she is interested in going down, hence why I think a Joomla route would be good for her.
Evohosting look good, plenty of features to go with the 'Home' package.
Joomla Wired also seem to be an attractive option, but slightly less for your beans.
Looking for good, quick technical support when it all goes wrong with a good mix of package features and bang for my buck.
Anyone got any dealings with these two, or maybe another host they could recommend?

++ Support, and all round the best
Just a note that it is well worth getting into the basics of HTML/CSS, as it's a huge advantage to be able to switch to code in WYSIWYG editors for fine tuning and understand what other people are going on about in webby meetings.

I allow EduGeek Members to host websites on my servers for these kind of things as they are non-profitable and well it's all for the good of helping people.
I'd be happy to setup some hosting space for you if you PM me your details, and if you need any support with Joomla you can either post it on here or i'll see what i can do :-)
Offers there, just thought i'd let you know

Thanks for the offer James, much appreciated, but unfortunately one of the sites intended on being 'developed' is a also for a family business, so there is a commercial interest there which probably breaks your 'AUP' so to speak.

If you get stuck with Joomla, like James said, just post on here and someone should be able to help you.

Is there a specific Joomla forum within Edugeek do you know? I'm still finding forums I didn't know existed even after 3 years on the site!
