    Default From NOF to Joomla?

    I wonder if any of you has ever converted a NOF site into a Joomla template
    and if so, how was it done and what were the problems encountered. I am
    venturing on that path now as I need a CSM with wider application than
    NPower.
    I'd be interested to get your views. Thanks!

    Default Re: From NOF to Joomla?

    I have a site that was originally designed by me in NOF, then
    re-designed years later by a 3rd party with Joomla, and then handed back
    over to me for maintenance. Joomla is great in the right situation...
    but it's not right for all situations. Problems arise when the client
    wants to put something over here or over there... and then he has to be
    reminded that the template-based Joomla wants to apply one template to
    all the pages and so it's not so easy to work with single pages in the
    way that we used to. Also, a huge problem emerged for us when the
    Joomla developer explained that, while Joomla is PHP-based, we would not
    be allowed to include PHP code along with content on any of our pages.
    I eventually found a mod that allows you to overcome that limitation but
    the site developer was afraid to add it for fear it would screw things
    up. I chose to ignore the warning, added the mod myself, and all is
    good. PHP now works, although you do have to make some changes in order
    to get it to function. So keep that in mind if you ever get to that point.
