    Episode 42 should be what we need. We are looking at expanding our church website. We are seriously looking at Final Web. But, has anyone discussed Drupal, Joomla! or other open-source content management systems? Our webmaster is considering those for the features and future update, but does not have lots of time to configure and maintain them.
