So here's the deal.

I'm running a website for my sister's high school marching band... and the parents are being adamant about having a message board on the site.

I mean... I can design a website and throw it into Fetch and ta da... but I don't know anything about html.

So I used Simple Machine Forums and I got it on my page and all that... but I don't know how to do anything to it. I seriously think my myspace savvy 14 year old sister would be better at this than I am. I really am not down for learning html for this.

So... I want another option. Is there something free (because I'm volunteering my time for them) or else a program or something I can buy inexpensively... that I can use that doesn't require coding? Does such a thing exist?

help me! I'm afraid of band boosters!

Look into or Homepage :: Zikula Application Framework :: Fast easy and free - Do you dig it? or PHP-Nuke all of these are based on modules that can be added very easily, bulletin boards, news, photo galleries, etc. Easy to install, easy to administer, easy to update.
