This is a custom WordPress site I did for the local Downtown Association. They wanted something that didn’t cost a fortune that they could keep updated themselves. I was able to do a custom layout, event calendar, photo gallery, slideshows, document manager and many other things in pretty short order and cheap enough that I don’t even want to tell you what I gave it to them for. :)
If you need a website that you can keep updated yourself, a custom WordPress site is perfect in most cases. There are literally thousands of free add-ons you can download and install to make your site function any way you need.
