I would like to show off the new Parliamentary Education website, you can view it at:
http://www.peo.gov.au/

The website is using CMSMS 1.11.9, should be upgrading to 1.11.10 very soon.

Modules used are as follows:

Calguys Module Extensions
Calguys Smart Image Toolkit
Extended Content Blocks
Form Builder
GBFilePicker
ListIt2
Frontend User Management
Template Externalizer
Product Manager
Quotes made simple
SEO Tools2
Site User's Guide
CGSimpleSmarty

Thank you to the developers of all these modules, they really make CMSMS an awesome product

The site makes extensive use of 'Calguys Smart Image Toolkit' and 'ListIt2', also if you are not using 'Template Externalizer' on your own sites you probably should start.

All content images (including the image library) on the site are handled by a module created with 'ListIt2', Images are resized using 'Calguys Smart Image Toolkit'. If you would like some help with setting up something similar I am happy to assist.

Also a big thanks to the guys at http://www.i-do-this.com/, who don't know me but I sure do appreciate the tips on your site.

Fantastic work!

I have been looking at different frameworks recently, e.g. Twitter Bootstrap. Is there any particular reason you choose Pure framework over any other?

I normally rename the /admin/ folder. If they can't find it, they can't hack in to it. ;D

But there exists a very easy way to find out the admin path...

Sent it in PM to me. I will let you know if it breaks forum policy.

The reason I chose Pure over Bootstrap is because I believe it is a much smaller framework.
I also didn't require all the additional enhancements Bootstrap seems to put in (eg. button and form styles).

I have thought about changing the admin directory, thanks for suggesting the change, I will do so. If there is an easy way to find it I bet it is going to be plugged in the next update :).

Also, if anyone notice any browser issues please let me know.

Thanks
TB
