I think I may have missed one or more emails in this series. So, I apologize
if this is repetitive.
When the NTR out reach program was first launched. I set up this Joomla site
with Community builder components as a thought for tracking the project.
It has not been touched in a while so probably needs updating, but I could
add RSS feeds, gallery components, calendar, other
administrators......basically I am happy to modify it for your use, and
transfer to whatever server you would like. It is on my development site
Another thought is:
Have you looked into the google apps suite to solve some of these issues.
Education edition is free for non-profits, and hosting is included on google
servers. There is room for several admins, and both public and private
pages, as well as docs, calendars, email etc.....
Let me know if I can be of assistance in anyway.
