There are a lot of people on here using Zenfolio and Smugmug.

Another one to possible checkout is Squarespace.

Did you have a Wordpress.com site or a wordpress.org site. I have wordpress.com and I find it really simple, but it's not really designed for photographers.

I am guessing you had a .org site.

I have a .com site, and it is really simple. No coding required. Just select a theme that you like, and all the options pop up in the dashboard.

One is self hosted. That's the one that you need to know what you are doing. You could put this on your own server.

The .com version is stored on wordpress servers and you are limited to your options. That said, you have a lot of options. They give you templates and you just fill in the information.

I use WordPress personally... It is by far my favorite over the likes of other expensive methods. I bought a theme from a website called ThemeForest that was built specifically for photographers, was easy to setup and they all come with excellent support and 'idiot proof' documentation on how to set them up correctly.
Have a look through there, they may seem a bit expensive at first but when you remember you are buying something that would cost hundreds possibly even thousands from certain design agencys then it is a damn great deal. ;)

I use Wordpress with a subscription to GraphPaperPress (external link). The guy who started the company is a photographer and all their themes are built for photographers.

If you are a Lightroom user, you might want to look at LR plugins from The Turning Gate (external link) initially the CE3-Pages plugin.
