Our team of Joomla experts has been hard at work creating a Joomla website specific to school websites. The goal was to create a headstart for you so you could instantly start working on content, not dealing with the headaches of setting up and confiuring the site. The tasks involved included:
- Research and review of the needs of schools (two of us are former teachers!)
- Creating a suitable content organization (sections and categories), site map and navigation for a school
- Seeking out the best and most reliable extensions
- Installing and configuring them all to work together, with Joomla and with the template
- Write extensive tutorials specific to setting up a school site with Joomla
We bundled the result together with some great extras for you to get started with your site:
- A complete installable Joomla package including components and content. Exactly as you see in the our Joomla School website demo. This will save your hours (over 60!) of set up time.
- Email Newsletter Component (Acajoom)
- Calendar (JCal Pro)
- Document Manager (Remository)
- Extended menu for a pure CSS drop down navigation, makes your site more accessible and easier to index by search engines.
- A high quality free school joomla template with 4 color packs designed by Joomlashack
- A coupon for 50% off one of our commercial Joomla templates good for one week after your Shack Pack purchase (worth up to $85)
- Our own popular 80 page Joomla users manual ($27 value)
- A free forum for Joomla users in schools to come together and talk about their own needs and successes
- A huge 30 page guide entitled "Creating a School Website with Joomla".
We think that this service is exactly what you need to get started with Joomla. Think of it as the ultimate beginners kit. Thousands of hours of Joomla expertise and experience squeezed into a single downloadable file – The Joomlashack School Shack Pack.
Remember, this Shack Pack is for beginniners, if you are an experienced Joomla user and have the time, all of the parts are GPL or free, you can grab them from the links given above. Our tutorial is also free so you can use that to build the site at no cost!
We think the time savings and the finished site are more than worth the price, so do some of our customers, here is what they have to say:
I have been waiting for a package like this. What a great idea.
Thanks in advance and congrats on a great job!
I just wanted to thank you guys for a great start our school district’s website. When I say "start" all we have to do is add our content. The install was extremely easy and the added manuals are going to be a great help. We plan on getting 12 more licenses for each of our schools once we have the district intranet site set up with our info and we are able to showcase the ease of operation to our Principles. You have saved us tons of work that we had planned on redesigning our website.
I purchased the same manual from Joomla Shack separately a few weeks ago that is provided in the Shackpack and it has saved me countless hours of trying to figure out stuff on my own.
I’ve purchased the School Shack Pack this morning and I love it!
This is truly incredible and wonderful. What a great idea. I get some requests now and then not only for school sites but for churches as well. I think the school template could even be adapted for public library sites.
I am working very hard to learn to develop sites in Joomla and JoomlaShack and CompassDesigns have been an amazing and invaluable source of information and assistance for me. Keep up the great work and thanks for all you do.
