I was going to say the exact same thing. Depending on the complexity of your

For my work website I've chosen Drupal because I'm a masochist and figure I
should learn it. I have to tell you that I program PHP/MySQL from scratch
and it's a lot harder for me to learn WP and Drupal, because they are other
