Now that the module assignments are in place and the template is installed, it was time to inspect the layout. It all looked pretty ok! Until I noticed some weird thing with the submenu items. These were all in the wrong order. Somehow the conversion of menu-items doesn't work as planned because I now had to reorder every single submenu item ... That took me some time.
As you can see, the homepage is still pretty empty:
Time to install some additional extensions like Cache Cleaner, Modules Anywhere, Display News and JCE.
