Proposal To Provide An Interim Joomla Package
As a lot of time has passed without any posts by aloneBFG I'm proposing to provide a modified and simplified version of the edugeek Joomla package.
It will be based upon my own modifications of the main edugeek Joomla 1.5 package and will have the possible contentious gallery module and advanced JCE editor removed.
I'm looking for a volunteer (please PM me if you wish to volunteer) to go through alpha testing and intend to try to only distribute the package to "pucker" educationalists in case the gallery/JCE editor are not the contentious items!
If you like to see what it could look like, have a look at St Leonards to see the site it will be based on.
The package will in no way approach the excellent standards of Sysman and aloneBFG but I just want to help out others get started with Joomla as its a reasonable way to get a nice looking site without TOO much effort :)
To repeat: The package will in no way approach the excellent standards of Sysman and aloneBFG but has been tweaked to make it easier to keep up to date from the frontend rather than having to modify the much more complicated backend :)
If anyone objects to me doing this - please let me know sooner rather than later so as not to disappoint any "customers" :)
Already realised that St Leonard's had a flash video on the front page that was inserted by the paid for advanced JCE editor - so if you want things like that - you'll have to pay for them ($20 last time I looked :) ) [/edit]
