Update to version 1.1.1 28/01/01
Well after lots of tweaking and testing by members of this forum I am pleased to release the Edugeek Joomla Package.The package has now been updated to include the most recent version of the Joomla core, version 1.0.13. Also the blank header images for the eg_default template have now been included.
For those that dont know this is a pre configured Joomla website specifically created with schools in mind. Installed with some great add-ons and pre configured content and menu structure. All the keen webmaster needs to do is to edit the content so that it is relevant to their school and youre good to go. No time wasted having to create menus, categories etc.
Also included is a specially made template to make best use of the add-ons provided. It has a clean web 2.0 look and comes in 4 different colours so should suite most schools. It also includes some great Typography options. The blank header images are also included.

Thanks again to all the members who helped in testing this, and I hope you find it useful.
If you have any problems please post in this forum.

On the changing graphic at the top it says "Learning at our school is taylored" It should be tailored. I know most people are probably going to change it anyway, but worth mentioning. Looking very impressive tho.
Can i just say a big thanks to you Sysman_MK for all the work that you have put in. It says a great deal about the members of this forum who go to great lengths to make the lives of ICT admins/techs easier.
I saw this demoed in a thread and immediately went to Joomla and downloaded the latest stable build. I then proceeded with the installation just so i could utilise this template.
The look i think is a very polished, professional look and for it to be realesed freely is fantastic. Hoorah for open source.
Thats it for now. Back to the grindstone.
Once again keep up the good work Edugeek and thanks Sysman_MK
Thanks for the comments HodgeHiOriginally Posted by HodgeHi
The package also includes Joomla + some components + pre made content too
Just wanted to say a big thankyou to eveyone who was involved in the development. You have saved myself and no doubt lots of people alot of time and effort
Sorry for not responding sooner about this! I just went to view the demo page posted above and have noticed that the right hand menu doesn't appear to be lining up correctly and there is a rogue 'download' link sitting in the top left of the screen. This seems to be happening across all pages. Please see the attachment for a visual. I am using Firefox 22.214.171.124. Thanks for all your hard work so far, its most impressive!!
Cheers nickje all fixed now
Text for the menus was too long.
As for the rouge link that is so that you click on the school logo and are taken back to the main page.
Can i say a big Thank you aswell.
This is a great resource and so very kind of you to give away.
You the man SYSMAN_MK.
Thanks and Well Done *pats on the back :-)
Well done and thread made into a sticky.
I'll post it as an announcement later too ;-)
Nice one sysman will come in very handy
thanks again sysman,
i've changed our header now it all looks very nice now all i need to do is put some content up on the site!
i think we probably owe you a few beers!!
Thanks for this, so much better than what the School paid 2 grand for!
Some people might get an error when importing the SQL data. Replace the file site\installation\sql\joomla.sql with the one attached. Rename to .sql
I'll update the zip package to include this fix later tonight.
Thanks a lot sysman, this is alot better than the site that i've made for the school.
