Joomla Content Editor

One of the first components we install on the Joomla websites we build is the Joomla Content Editor (JCE).  We find it to be an easy editor to use, with a lot of functionality.  

We love the fact that it is extendable to add additional required functions.  Additional add-ons add the ability to add captions, emotions, iframes, file manager, image manager, media manager, template manager, etc.

The editor itself is free to download and subscriptions are available to access the additional functionality.

We highly recommend it!

Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited Site Re-Design

We completed a migration of the Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited Chapter's Website.  This Sacramento, California based chapter of Trout Unlimited is focused on protecting the coldwater fisheries of the Western Sierra Nevada.

This migration included rolling all of the existing content from their Joomla 2.5 installation over to Joomla 3, updating the calendar and registration components to new versions. Components were also added to improve the communications ability for the site including contact forms, photo gallery, newsletter and document control.  A new template was also created utilizing the Trout Unlimited logo colors.

We also created a Facebook Page for the Chapter. You can view it at
