Does OR integrate with Joomla?
If so, how is it to be achieved? Is it something to do with the CMS integration template?

OR is starting to have it's own CMS implementation... a few tweaks, some contact info, an easier way to create leads and it will satisfy most of the needs...

Thanks, but that doesn't really tell me much does it?

OR v3 is a standalone application and does not directly integrate with joomla.

True enough, the best you can do is to write a bridge between the 2 apps. It can be an addon for OR, Joomla, or a standalone app connecting and transferring data between the 2 apps.

Ok, thanks Meki and Sandking.
I'm not a coder so for now I'll just leave it. I didn't know whether OR was designed to connect to Joomla as standard. Would that facility not open OR up to a much wider market??

Thanks

As far as I can see it wouldn't. Joomla is a module based CMS, it can be almost everything, but it is a standalone app like OR.
The wider market you speak about would be to have the option for connecting CRM systems, but a CRM is being built into OR, so it's being taken care of...
If OR manages to evolve into an all-a-round R(eal)E(state)M(anagement)S(ystem), then there won't be any need to have Joomla integrate it.
