    Joomla 3 Scout template - anyone interested?

    Joomla 3 is such an awesome platform, especially with bootstrap now part of the admin template.

    I've been building sites with Bootstrap front ends and it seemed a natural progression to do this.

    Its taken about 10 hours to get this together, so it's a pretty rapid development environment.

    The intention is to distribute a Joomla 'Quick Start' install with the Joomla core and the template in one install.

    All the graphics and headings are loosely based on the scouts.org styling with live fonts (even the group logo - you just type in your name).

    I've not floated this past Gilwell, and no doubt, it'll wrankle someone - but it is what it is - a private project to investigate what can be done.

    Better than Scouts.org, its RESPONSIVE! and works on phones, tablets and desktops with one template.

    The customisation is carried out by a single .css file and a modified template index.php file over a Bootstrap template.

    Any one interested in sharing in this project, PM me.

    Great work - looks fantastic. I haven't used Joomla since 1.5 but will definately try it out again after seeing this. Good luck with the project.

    Excellent stuff - my problem with Joomla was how difficult it was to tie down security on it. My Joomla sites are always hit by spammers. It may have changed in the last year - I don't know.
