Sorry for the delay in coming back and thanks for your replies, looks like a "maybe" from kc0maz and I'm not sure what Tom meant by "If you feel you may now of made the wrong choice, then I'd be inclined to agree with you" then giving me good reason to stick with it.

I "toyed" with Mambo some time back and recently had a stab at Joomla. I really don't have time to extensively test all possible options, as it's only a small part of my life - my late night pizza and coffee pot days are long gone.

I chose XOOPS because it looked straightforward and I easily got a grasp of the basic architecture. I have no real gripe with the core, it seems stable and fairly secure, (I'm not storing data of any great worldly import so this was not a major issue). I wanted to be up and running fairly quickly.

What I was looking to deploy were :-
1.) An events calendar (settled on ExtCal)
2.) A simple report writer (now News)
3.) A Forum (now ForumEx)
4.) A photo album (now MyAlbum-P)

My overall experience has been really positive, although I've done a fair amount of hacking to standardise things like "Submit/Go/Save/Send etc." but the language structure makes this fairly easy. I also find that there are often too many options for my fairly non-technical users, but better than too few.

The concern I have is the third-party - the core development seems to be moving apace, but the Module repository is looking a little dusty and there are a lot of dead links in the comments and forums.

Anyway, having spent more time writing a user guide for my non-technical administrators than I did building the site, we are ready to launch. - Maybe the first of many

Having recently started deploying XOOPS for a community website, postings like this make me a little uneasy.

This isn't helped by the buggy nature of some of the modules and the lack of recent modules.

Have I made the right choice or should I have tried harder with Joomla?

Being short of time, I did this quick hack to layersmenu.js:-

else {
if (DOM) {
document.getElementById(menuName).style.visibility = "hidden";
} else if (NS4) {
document.layers[menuName].visibility = "hide";
} else {
document.all[menuName].style.visibility = "hidden";
}
}
Effectively making it always hidden.
