Joomla chosen, tentatively….

It looks like I’m going to Joomla for the Boulder Heights website. Here’s why I picked Joomla, at least for now:

  • Built-in forum module with support for registered users
  • VirtueMart plugin for e-commerce (requested by a few) -> This is key for supporting purchases of the Boulder Heights directory.
  • Classified module for local classifieds (or, could use JoomlaBoard)
  • TinyMCE WYSIWYG support
  • No need to touch anything under the hood. Components self install.
  • Easiest installation, ever…. 2 minutes total!

You can see my progress at getting this up and running here.
