But my-oh-my doesn't the way the internal navigation get to ya! It's hard to read because you can't get a feel for the context.
Take a search for the term 'backup' for example. Kindle finds 66 matches. Triffic! But which one do you need? Hmmmm. Each search result has a location number attached to it. So you have to scroll through as many as your patience will stand ... what's the difference between location 388 or 6652? To the average user ....its meaningless.
How about listing a breadcrumb trail for each location.... like this...
66 matches, location 388, location 6571 (etc.)
66 matches location> Introduction> page 3> Time for action> Point 1
I run my Kindle stuff on a PC, a Tablet and a phone. I promise you, it isn't easy to find your way around.
Authors need to learn the skill of writing for screen-based devices. Kindles aren't books. Invert the message. Start with the key points and then explain. (Standard usability guidance available all over the Internet). Trouble is, it's cheaper to 'Kindle-ise' a book than it is to think about the reader-experience in detail.
Joomla 3 for beginners by Eric Tiggeler covers just about everything. It starts off with a gradual introduction to what Joomla is and what sort of projects it is most suitable for. The book runs through the details of installation and setup of a dummy project. It then moves on towards the setup of articles, categories, navigation links and templates. Topics like SEO and security are also covered. Within just a few chapters, the book is already teaching you how to build quality websites and discussing lots of advanced features in Joomla.
Like many other Packt books, the book is well structured and laid out throughout. The 'have a go hero' and 'pop quiz' sections provide opportunities to practice what you've read and revise things again if you're unsure about something.
I don't have anything negative to say about this book. Speaking as someone who has only touched the surface of Joomla a few times in the past, I thought the book was excellent and covered everything someone new to Joomla would need to know. I suspect that despite this being branded as a 'beginners guide', there is also a lot of information contained within, useful for existing users or users seeking a quick Joomla recap.
I use a mix of almond oil and castor oil
To cleanse, followed by rose hip or coconut to moisturise.
I'd reccomend this castor oil. Great quality and A bargain. In sure there are other uses for castor oil too but I haven't tried anything else yet!
The content of the book is organized perfectly:
- A good presentation of each topic.
- Next instruction how to practice the given topic.
- Then explanations what you have just done.
Eric Tiggeler is not just a Joomla guru. He knows how to teach!
- Background information about what Joomla! is, how it works and what it can be used for, things you can build with it etc.
- Detailed instructions on installing Joomla! on your web hosting server
- Finding your way around the Joomla! editing interface
- The principles of building websites with Joomla!, including content, links and themes
- Creating new webpages, organising content efficiently and improving your overall workflow
- Search engine optimisation, website security, multilingual support and other topics
All-in-all, this is a very complete guide to Joomla!, which covers a range of topics for both novice and more experienced users. Like many other Packt publications, The Joomla! 3 Beginner's Guide is organised into different chapters, with numerous illustrations throughout.
