Former Joomla! – K2 site home page

Site re-build – first stage completed has now been converted from my web and graphics design site to a personal site that will showcase some of my manual and digital artwork, among other things.

The web and graphics design, now including custom templates and themes for Joomla!, WordPress, Drupal, HTML and DotNetNuke using Artisteer, along with tips and getting started guides for Joomla!, are now available at

First go-around with the K2 extension from Joomlaworks has been successful. This is a very powerful and complex addition to the Joomla! developer’s arsenal and I have here only touched the surface of it’s remarkable capabilities. As I get more familiar with it, I will be extending the functionality of it on this site and reporting about what I have done in my Blog.

Additionally, the Joomla! template that is in use on this site was created with Artisteer and slightly modified from it’s native build. The tweaks that were made on it will be documented both here and on shortly. As well, a few adjustments were made to the standard K2 stylesheet; these will be covered too.

  1. @Ann M – The family name is Irish, with it’s origin somewhere south-west of Dublin. There was a world-wide reunion held there in 1984, but we unfortunately could not attend as my brother was getting married that weekend 🙁 Cheers! Lyle

  2. The Chamneys came over to Ireland from Lancashire (County Louth) England in the 1600’s. My family tree stems from Wicklow county, south of Dublin…so we may be related. There is another family reunion slated for the summer of 2010. Murray Chamney – King City ON

  3. The Chamney family possibly came from Lancashire, around the Cartmel area as there was a large concentration of Chamney families there. Chamneys appeared in the early registers of Ulverston parish circa 1547. Entries for a Christopher Chamney’s family appeared in the St Peter’s Church of Ireland, Drogheda, Co Louth register from Apr 1654 to Apr 1659 and then the family disappeared. I’m still trying to connect our family (Murray belongs to my branch) to that of Lyle’s who lived north of our Chamneys in Wicklow. Cheers Deb Flanagan

  4. Hi I’m interested in any information on a Joseph C Chamney (Born South County Dublin 1870)Co. Dublin who married an Elizabeth Newman (not certain of this surname born in Wicklow 1876) circa 1899 and they had four children. Maria,Elizabeth, Edward (Emigrated Australia) and Alice. Anyone see any similarities with their own families. Regards Brendan

  5. I’m stuck at Edward Chamney who lived in Bardsea, Lancashire & had several children baptized there between 1779 & about 1788. Can’t trace him back before that, it seems. Some of his progeny lived at Hampton Court Palace (Thomas & his son William) & later Portsmouth (Marcus Mitchell Chamney), before immigrating to the USA. I have extensive records on some branches of the family, but could use help with the Lancashire part. Best regards to all!
