Create a new Joomla! v 1.5 website for a not-for-profit organization. This
could include a place of worship, a club, a humanitarian or missionary
site, a non-profit organization in your community, or for your school. It
is preferred if the site uses all three SEF URL options and several
extensions created by Joomla! GHOP contestants.

When the site is complete, prepare an overview of the website, sharing
lessons learned, site highlights, pictures of the website, and
comments/quotes from those who will use and maintain the site. This
overview can be written or video based. It should be developed in such a
way that it could be used by others considering if Joomla! might meet their
needs for a similar site and purpose.

The contestant is expected to be in close contact with the Joomla! GHOP
judges and community by posting in the Joomla! forums every few days to
share project status information, request assistance, and share ideas with
others. It is important to engage the community and include appropriate
feedback into the project, as well.

After a Joomla! GHOP judge acknowledges you have claimed this task, please
read http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,239201.0.html and respond in
the Joomla! forums. Your first post should announce who the site will be
built and confirmation that a Joomla! v 1.5 site is not already available
for this purpose.

Resources:

    * Install XAMPP and Joomla! -
http://developers.facebook.com/get_started.php
    * Backup and Restore a Database using phpMyAdmin -
http://code.google.com/p/google-highly- ... tail?id=50
    * Configuration SEF URLs -
http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,240302.0.html

Skills needed:

    * Communication skills to talk to those who will use the website
    * Design and logic skills to make end user requirements into an easy to
use site
    * Creativity and problem solving skills

Difficulty
Simple

Work Product
    * Functioning Joomla! v 1.5 website, updated to the newest release (RC
or final) based on ending date, accessible on the WWW Licensing

    * All code must be created using the GNU General Public License version
2. http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-license ... .html#SEC4


Documentation written for this task must be made available under the
Joomla! Electronic Documentation License.

Extra Credit

This task can be done very simply, with limited functionality, or, the
developer can create a fully functional environment of some complexity. The
presentation of the site in written or video form is also an important part
of the judging of this task. The depth of implementation will be the extra
credit opportunity for this task.

Time Limit
4 weeks


I am going to make a website with Joomla for a club called My Study Club.  My Study Club is a club formed by students and for students to discuss study subjects.  The club is a based in Silicon Valley, California.  I will inform the progress of the website here.  Thanks for your support.

Hi Android93,

How is your website coming? Do you want some feedback? What is the basic design you have in mind?

It's the code.google.com page that is already setup for your issue, where you first claimed this task.

There is nothing on http://code.google.com/p/google-highly- ... ssues/list and Task 154 was deleted from http://code.google.com/p/google-highly- ... =100&can=1 .  I followed Joomla's rule to finish the task and posted on Joomla's forum as the rule indicated.  What happened?

I just posted the links at google.  The video is in wmv format and it can be played by using Windows Media Player or latest Real Player (Version 11).  I will convert it to a MPEG format in case you can't open it. 
Thank you all for your help.

It seems that http://docs.joomla.org/GHOP_Contest_Tasks has not been updated.  I have converted the summary into a pdf file so it will be easier to read.  The pdf file is available at http://www.mystudyclub.org/ghop/MyStudyClub.pdf .
