A friend who volunteers at the Humane Society in St. Cloud mentioned that they needed help with their website. The office manager was getting desperate and was going to resort to building a new site from scratch. I noticed that they had an old Joomla site, and I offered to bring it up to date for them and give it a fresh look.
I uninstalled a bunch of unused features and then began a major upgrade to the Joomla core. The result was a vastly simplified site structure which retained all the useful features. We later added a storefront extension, and I've since done a second Joomla core update to bring the site to current standards.
One interesting thing about this site is that it gets about 800 visits per day from people in the area. It's certainly rewarding to know our work is useful to so many. Thanks to my colleague Clara Navin for help with the feature slider graphics.
