    New School Site

    As many already know - the Edugeek Joomla template is a godsent. I've had to create our website pretty quickly due to a problem with the LEA hosting a Welsh version in SharePoint. It has been a quick turnaround and development is far from over but...

    Thank you Edugeek for making my life easier.

    I've added a module at the top of the page. Not sure if I like it yet but I am happy with it. The school focus group will make their minds up I'm sure.

    Please do take a look - like I say - don't expect anything amazing, it's just the Edugeek template. More pictures are needed, more information is needed. The head just wanted our web presence.

    Welcome to the Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr Website

    Cheers guys

    Gareth

    The module is called yoocarousel and is from YOOtheme? - Joomla!? Templates and Extensions - Blog

    There are quite a few there. I don't usually join developer/design clubs but I did like this module. So I joined for three months (or the school did).

    A cracker Gareth, I'm well envious that you managed to put it together in such short time

    My site took me the best part of a year and I'd never have got it done at all apart from the huge support of many EduGeekers

    Now I have learnt a tad about joomla and the rest of the package I'm hopeful that my site for my other school should be done in 6 months!!

    Looking good! Nice work.

    I'm also a fan of that module and some of the others on the YOO site although like an idiot I didn't download them all and let the subscription lapse.

    I started it late in January when it turned out the LEA couldn't accomodate us. I went to see the Headteacher and we decided to go for it.

    I will thank James (EduTech Hosting) for the speed at which the hosting was setup.

    Have you got a favicon to replace the standard Joomla?

    I will point out some other excellent modules I have used:

    JoomlaPack - great for making backups and moving the site from the test server to the main server. It just works.

    JoomFish - Let's you create excellent multi language websites. In my case it was Welsh. One of the developers is Welsh :-) See we do have talent on this side of the bridge.

    Phoca Gallery - Not quite there yet, but on the way.

    YooThemes - more to be used

    ForceIE8 Compatability Mode - yes I have that module in there.

    JCE 1.5.6 - the text editor

    and of course I Edugeek for hosting the template files. Amazing.

    Finally, sysman for the template - surely it's time for another one now :-)

    Lovely! Wish I could do something like that!
    On the 'Use of Welsh' page it says enflish instead of english.
    And 'Octover' on the liaison page

    Mis-spaced 'i tpossible' on pastoral care page
    Organisation of teaching - it says 'years7' instead of year 7

    Sorry to be so anal but your site is so nice I cant bear to see it spoiled by typos!!
