Topic: Canberra Fisherman's Club website redevelopment Speaker: Chris Head
The early days – Basic HTML site with minimal information and photo competition page.
What members wanted out of the website – A members forum was one of the drivers to a website update.
Challenges on the way – what platform to use a trial and error period.
How we ended up on the Joomla path – Events software search brought us into contact with a Joomla extension called DT Register by DTH Development and in the end this was the driver to our Joomla upgrade
Where we are today – A happy Joomla user with many extension and plugins but still lots to learn
What's next – learning to manage the site more efficiently and introduce other club member into the management of the site
