The Hornshadow districts

Hornshadow is divided in 5 districts. For each of them, you'll have the name of their official local representatives and the complet list of the activities available in this aera (shops, associations, utilities, education, religion, etc.).


Slightly elevated from the rest of Hornshdow, this neighborhood quickly became the choice of the bourgeois and the local aristocracy. The houses are opulent there and the streets are wide and safer than elsewhere. Greathook is maybe more expensive but its a very nice and charming district for living.

Hotwell is a suburb of Hornshadow which extends beyond the city walls in a south-easterly direction, along the Dearborn Road. It is still a poor neighborhood, populated mainly by hunters, peasants and families who have recently arrived in Hornshadow. The houses are modest but the population is increasing.

Most of the descendants of the Hornshadow pioneers today live in this northern part of town. Populated mostly by traders and farmers, Northgate has experienced very low population growth. Nevertheless, it is an important entry point that connects the city to the north of the country.

The surroundings

The area around Hornshadow is mostly composed of cultivated fields (to the northeast) and prairies (to the west and south). The river that crosses the city is not navigable and only serves to feed the population. In fact, there isn't much of interest for miles around. Trust me!

Language override + override of "/html/mod_whosonline/default.php"

Why this website?

First, I had the idea to create a site to collect and display the overrides that I was going to create during the Joomla Overrides Challenge. Then, the idea of creating a site that is only done with overrides gained ground. I wanted this site to be inspirational for the Community and beyond, to show that it is easy and fun to play with Joomla and overrides. I encourage everyone to play with the overrides :)

The explanations about the overrides created for this site are mainly posted on my website and/or on my blog.

I love the middle ages and medieval times. So I took this opportunity to imagine and create the site of a medieval town thanks to (thank you Cloudaccess). However and even if it's not the point here, I do not guarantee the authenticity of the information and illustrations contained in this site :)

If you have any ideas for improvement, please do not hesitate to contact me.

monkAbout the Joomla Overrides Challenge

In association with Viviana Menzel, we've created the unofficial Joomla Overrides Challenge.

The final goal of this partnership is to show how Joomla can be really powerful with the overrides. Of course, we also have fun and we increase our Joomla skills. There is nothing to win and the participants have nothing to lose.

Each month, we create an new override based on an extension or on an project. That's why I've created this website to display some of my overrides created in this challenge. Whatever is your Joomla level, if you want to join us and participate you're very welcome. Don't hesitate to contact Viviana or me :)
