A Place for Learning

This is an example school site from The Official Joomla! Book. It is built with Joomla 2.5.  It is shown in both the first edition (in the appendices for Joomla! 1.6) and in the second edition (in the main school chapter).  The books explain step by step how to build this site. 

The site uses a modified version of the Beez2 template with a small CSS override.  The calendar is GCalendar. The Easy Folder Listing module is used to display the lunch menu PDFs. 

The sample sites are examples of how you would begin to build a Joomla site. Of course, once the basics are completed you would continue to  customize and modify your site to fit your needs.

First edition readers please note that Joomla! 2.5 is simply a rebranded release of the Joomla! 1.6 series. Everything in the book about Joomla! 1.6 applies to Joomla! 2.5.
