    NO! A business with absolutely no contact information, no information who is responsible for that biz (law), no telephone, no street, even not a country or location CAN’T be ‘…the best template provider on the internet…’! Serious guys are not hiding contact informations in the wild.

    Custom, what a stupid thing you just said. What’s the importance if you have address or not, it’s important if they offer good products and services. Anyone can write a fake address, and you will think that it’s serious business right?

    frog cms is great. very simple, if that’s what you need. i use wordpress and frog cms, depending on the needs of the site. imo joomla isn’t a good choice at all – if you want to learn something other than wordpress i wouldn’t go with joomla. i’ve downloaded expression engine and cannot wait to try it out. everyone i know that uses it says it’s worth the small price (the download is free, though, to get started).

    City Portal is the best. It loads fast and clean design.

    I had the same menu issue.. tried the global cinofg settings, the menu settings, all over the place finally found out:Extensions / Module Manager / main menu set the position to i_mainmenu and all published menus should be shown.

    Templates are horrible – maybe use a CMS that doesn’t force you to use templates then you can do what you want.
