I'm contemplating making a website for musicians looking for gigs/collaborations and bar owners to find bands and promote their venues.

I guess I need to buy some website template or script? But what am I looking for? I need something that combines the forums with a classifieds system. And also something simple enough that I can set up myself (I suck at programming).

I suck at programming too but have made several basic pages/sites (one of them still quite popular). Content seems to matter more than site design/layout/complexity (lots of very fancy sites out there that are now abandoned). Maybe start with something basic (lots of free html editors available); if/when it's successful it'll evolve over time? Also/obviously Google helps spread the word, more so if you include relevant search terms/phrases like, 'where can I find a gig?', etc.

My thoughts. Smile

Interesting...
"Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone."
