Which CC program would be best suited to build an online directory? I have tried wordpress but those templates have WAY to many features. I'm looking to build a *simple* directory site and this is not for the purpose of monetization. But I also don't want to have to build the whole site manually, I want directory software that will manage the sub-directories for me and such.

Hi Chad,
How much data will there be? Is the data best displayed tabular? Myself I would use the HTML Editor with some php scripts.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hey Eric!

Hmm well I don't know PHP. There will be probably 3 dozen entries to start.

I guess it all depends on the amount of data and whether it will be fixed or dynamic. You could simply write code for a simple menu setup.
