CMS-like website

Provides a great starting point for using Django with Django-registration, Captcha, Bootstrap, and jQueryUI. Default base template provides a simple starting interface which you can expand on easily.

Provides a good base for a social community of some sort, where registration is available with Captcha along with a theme which most community sites use, a block-based theme.
