Joomlashack Shack Pack for Schools

School Websites are challenging. Why not let the Shack Pack for Schools make it easier?

Back in 2007 Joomlashack released its first Shack Pack for Schools, built for Joomla 1.0.x and sporting our free Education template.

Now we're back with a new Joomla 1.5 version completely rebuilt to work with our Inspirion template, and stuffed with several outstanding extensions!

School Website Admins: the Shack Pack for Schools saves you many hours of research, fiddling, and Joomla configuring.

Our team of Joomla experts (some of whom are former high school teachers and administrators) have put together all of the tools and content you need to get started- all in one instant install package!


What's included in the Shack Pack?

  • Instant Joomla installer to create the full example site with content, several free and useful extensions, and relevant content. You'll start with a site that looks exactly like our "Shack Pack for Schools" demo.
  • Our Inspirion template, a $47 value with seven color packs included!
  • Access to our forum for Educators using Joomla where your questions can be answered

 

For just $97, you'll get a complete school website ready for your immediate tweaking and configuration.

You'll enjoy our comprehensive array of learning content including Joomla lessons, Joomla tutorials, Joomla video tutorials, and full Joomla courses.

In October we launched as a "Joomla for Beginners" Joomla Training course, but with plans to become so much more. The incredible response (over 400 students in under 80 days) provided us with excellent feedback about ShackU and where we should take it.

What do our students want next? More learning! More Joomla lessons, more Joomla videos and Joomla tutorials, more information about how to grow their Joomla business in 2010. We've already doubled our Joomla training content in just 3 months!

Now we are pleased to launch our latest course, Intermediate Joomla Training, included as a part of your ShackU membership!

Joomlashack University - the fastest and easiest way to learn Joomla is about to close its doors for the second time.

If you haven't heard, Joomlashack University is our new Joomla training course. Its delivered 100% online so you can learn at your own pace, and in the comfort of your own home. Each month we open to only a few students, and then stop taking on subscribers. This makes sure our teacher-student ratio is low and everyone's questions are quickly answered.

In November we opened our doors for 200 students have have about 10 spots left. We will be stopping open enrollment next Monday 14th of December, but these last 10 spots will probably go by the end of today!

Since 2005, Joomlashack has been creating Joomla templates that are ideal for Search Engine Optimization of a Joomla website. Back in 2006 we wrote the first available guide for SEO for Joomla, and also a guide for creating source ordered templates that's been used by thousands of designers.

Our first SEO templates in 2006 were super-lightweight ones like Simplicity and Lightfast, that the competition took years to catch up with, but over the last few months we have developed a breed of special Joomla templates that provide a rock solid foundation for your site; Inspirion, eBusiness and now JS Community.

Mark your calendars, it's official, Joomlashack will stop supporting Internet Explorer 6 as of December 14th, 2009.

With the coming of the new year and many Joomla template providers agreeing that support for IE6 should officially end, we've decided to make the leap a bit early.

The move to stop supporting IE6 is not limited to Joomla template developers alone, in fact it's got quite a large following from web developers as a whole.  Just do a Google search for 'no more IE6' and you will be treated with a list of articles, and even whole websites, dedicated to ending the life of IE6, or at least stopping the support of it.

In October 2009 the new Joomla training course - Joomlashack University opened its door to its first class of 100 students. For the last 4 weeks, these students have been learning how to Joomla with our rich video screencasts and tutorials and asking questions and networking in our forums.

Before launching Shack U, we knew we had a great product to offer. We gave leading Joomla figures a sneak look at the content and, as you can read yourself, they loved it.

As well as teaching insider Joomla tips and tricks to our first students, we have been taking feedback and improving the course. We have streamlined the student path through the learning content and added more courses.

After 4 weeks, we are ready to open our doors again.

Community, our latest theme due later this month, will be Joomlashack's first 1.5 native Joomla template to include matching themes for the JomSocial extension.

With social networking features become standard for many websites, JomSocial has become the must-have extension for Joomla users.

Our new Community template will integrate seemlessly with JomSocial, and give your site a consistent color and style scheme across every page.

Community will be a powerful SEO-optimized template built on our own modified 960 grid system. It'll be as fast, flexible, and simple to use as our last template, eBusiness.

We're putting the final touches and color schemes together and will release very soon.
