5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 27 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Joomla! Explained: Your Step-by-Step Guide (Paperback)
I've been using Joomla for about a year now, self-taught and using the Joomla forums for help. I've produced some nice sites but always struggled with a bits and pieces and a few basic concepts. I thought I'd buy this book to try and fill the gaps and learn properly how to do things. I'm really impressed. This book is for beginners but people like myself with limited experience can also benefit. I like the approach taken: You install Joomla without any sample data and then you start building the site from the beginning, step by step. The author also has created a site where you can quickly copy content for articles, which allows you to concentrate on doing the important stuff - learning Joomla. The book is for Joomla 1.6 but I'm using Joomla 1.7 and to be honest, I haven't noticed any difference between versions. I would cerainly recommend this book.
