Product description

From the Back Cover

Master Joomla! hands-on, step-by-step, through easy, practical examples!


Joomla! now powers tens of millions of websites of every size and type. But many beginners find it confusing, and most Joomla! books are too complex to help. Joomla! Explained is the solution. Top Joomla! trainer Stephen Burge teaches everything beginners need to know--and nothing they don’t need to know!


Joomla! Explained requires absolutely no experience with Joomla! content management, website construction, programming, scripting, or even HTML. Stephen Burge has taught thousands of beginners--and thousands more who’ve experimented with Joomla! but haven’t mastered it yet. Nobody knows more about guiding Joomla! users up the learning curve--from confusion to results!


You’ll master Joomla! one easy step at a time, through a complete hands-on case study. Burge presents crystal-clear visuals, explanations, and analogies--all extensively tested with real Joomla! beginners. This book’s quick, easy coverage includes


• Understanding what Joomla! does and how it works

• Installing the latest version of Joomla

• Navigating your site’s visitor and administrator areas

• Mastering workflows that make site creation easy

• Adding text, images, links, and formatting

• Creating efficient, usable navigation

• Providing contact forms, ad banners, and link directories

• Using modules to enable site registration and search

• Adding voting and other smaller “plug-in” features

• Quickly changing site designs with Joomla! templates

• Finding, choosing, installing, and using extensions

• Building both business and personal sites, step by step

• Giving customized access to different types of users

• Managing site versions in multiple languages

• Efficiently administering, backing up, and updating sites
