3.0 out of 5 stars Good book with a few minor issues 9 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
The book reflects exactly what the title is talking about, that is building a job search/offer site with Joomla!, using a commercial component from InstantPHP. During site buiding, you can find a Joomla! wide shot to make the book understandable for who's not a Joomla expert. Moreover, last chapter is a bonus introducing SEO subject: how to optimize a Joomla! site for search engines.

*Target*
Intended target of this book is really restricted. It is not only about creating a job search/offer site, which is already a specialistic subject in itself; this book is particularly made for those who aren't Joomla! experts. In fact there's a large Joomla! tutorial part.
Anyway, if you already know Joomla! you can focus on the Jobs section, and if you aren't interested in it, you can read this book as a case study of a specialistic Joomla! site built with a specific extension.

*Evaluation*
The main problem is the vast number of topics: in the same book the author tries to introduce Joomla! to beginners, teach how to use a specific extension and explain SEO techniques. However the author find some acceptable solutions.
First of all, an extraordinary synthesis ability and a very good expressive clearness make every concept clear in a few lines, so that this books becomes a good tutorial for CMS. Same thing for SEO.
Moreover, Jobs component is presented in a complete and scientific way, creating a reference manual for all menus and functionalities, rather than a course based on practical experience.

*Conclusion*
I do suggest this book, but for different reasons from those which made the author write it.
For Jobs extension users, this is a very good manual, useful for InstantPHP too, software original authors.

3.0 out of 5 stars So Sorry, but I expected a better book 16 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
The book "Building job sites with Joomla!" concerned primarily only one issue, the construction sites with job offers. It's true that the author added some more general topics such as about SEO, but do not change the fact that it is addressed to a very narrow audience.
The first chapter I was very disappointed, as usual, several pages how to install Joomla! and ... how to install the commercial component of Jobs!. The author wrote only that it is commercial, and gave the address page. I wish I had made an effort to specify exactly why he chose this instead of another extension, because we have more than one (ex. JA Job Board) to build this kind of web page.
And was any word why Joomla! is the best possible CMS, the construction of such sites, because there is some scripts build ony for this.
Thus the impression that the subsequent chapters is simply advertising and documentation of this component, not a case study site, which is already working on this component.

Chapter 3 what about how build a template, it is quite chaotic and too little practical, looks like a rewritten documentation. There are a lot of unnecessary information, and is not the most important, being guided by building or selecting a template for such sites.

The next chapter is about the administration of a duplication of information from other books for beginners.
I think a person who reaches out for the title already knows the basics of CMS, therefore, considers it a waste of paper.

The last chapter of SEO - is also weak, the author mentions only one extension, as if forgetting the other, in my opinion, more useful for administration of Joomla.

Information were also taken notice, and where this whole marketing and HR coating? That's why I am slightly disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aimed at the beginner 21 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
Building job sites with Joomla! This book covers everything you need to know about Joomla 1.5 installation and configuration as well as its advertised Jobs! Pro component so it is targeted at the Joomla beginner.

Everything is there including installing XAMPP and Joomla, even the basics of Joomla template design.

The real meat of the book, Jobs! Pro, starts at Chapter 5 and from there covers all you need to know about this extension. If your a beginner at Joomla and haven't used Jobs! Pro before then this book is ideal.

The final chapter deals with Joomla Search Engine Optimization.

This is a book aimed at a very precise market, Jobs! Pro but a large portion of the book clearly explains all you need to know about Joomla itself so it can be recommended on that basis as well.
