When I wrote the post about common Joomla misconceptions, I forgot one myth. A lot of people seem to think all Joomla sites look alike. They’re saying it pushes you to fit a certain design concept. But every now and then you see a site that proves them wrong. In the end, the creativity of the designer is the only limit. You can’t blame your canvas if your painting sucks.
The new “Know Your Rights” website by the United Nations is one such site that shows beautiful Joomla design. People keeping up with the news on the Nooku.org site, probably already saw this, but I felt it was worth cross posting it.
It’s even more amazing when you know that the site was originally made in Flash. This caused some issues: it was hard to make changes, and the languages were hardcoded. It didn’t fit the UN’s workflow. By rebuilding it as a Joomla + Nooku site, they can now easily add languages when the translation is ready.
