Joomla for a Community Website?

Post by TopKnot » Sun Feb 19, 2006 4:20 pm

I have never worked with Joomla but I am considering using it for my next website.  I currently have two websites.  The first is a strictly HTML site found at and is called the SVBN.  I provided the URL so you can see what type of site it is.  I'd like to change this site over to Joomla.
My second site is a XOOPS site that is basically the same type of site for another city.  What I like about XOOPS is the "Links" module in that is allows for ICONS for the Business Categories.  It sets off the Categories much better.  If you have any interest in seeing this site it can be found at

I have searched through many of the "Joomla Powered" sites and haven't seen one site that has ICONS for the Categories. 

My questions are:
1.  Can any one provide a link that shows a well organized but exciting looking Links section?
2.  Can you provide a link to a Joomla powered City/Community website?

I'd really like to try Joomla if there is an Links Add-On or Module that can do what my other site does.  I just don't want to go thru the work of installing and find that the software isn't quite right for my needs.

Thanks for any help or suggestions
