Very new to all this.
Anyway, i have a copy of a website, which is based on joomla -
I have the relevant HTML, and im not bothered about content, i just want to keep the same lay out.

How can i import this into either joomla or drupal and make a like for like copy?

(Basically want to mimic external website to use on intranet)

Thanks

Not sure that's really what i need, i dont have access to the actual Joomla install (other than from the web)

I do however have a HTML "shell" of the page that i need to import into it.!

Well, all CMSs run off of a template or theme, so you'd have to convert your HTML into a Drupal theme, or just find one you like. Getting the content imported is fairly simple, working with Drupal themes can be a bit more to grasp, although there are framework themes that you can customize as you need.
