Nimbin Community Web Portal Project
Nimbin Community Centre Inc with the assistance of the Chamber of Commerce, applied for and secured the domain name nimbin.nsw.au and funding from NSW Trade & Investment to establish a web portal for the Nimbin Community.
The objective was to provide non-profit community services and organisations working within Nimbin and the surrounding region the opportunity for a free web-presence as well as enhancing the online profile of Nimbin.
As part of the initial phase of the project sub-sites are being constructed for the;
Chamber of Commerce, www.chamber.nimbin.nsw.au
Nimbin School of Arts, www.schoolofarts.nimbin.nsw.au
Nimbin Preschool, www.preschool.nimbin.nsw.au
The Nimbin Community web portal is built using the Joomla Open Source content management system, allowing authorised users to change their information, update details and blog/newsletter through a simple online interface requiring no prior knowledge or html skills.
Training and online manuals will be provided for those taking part in the project. Nimbin Community Centre Inc will provide all hosting costs, administration and support.
We would love to hear from any Nimbin Community groups (not for profit) and link in.
