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

I got this book on time and in a perfect condition. I always go back to this book when I am trying to develop or enhance a JOOMLA based website.

This is indeed a great book. Most importantly, its explanations of things are incredibly clear and to the point. It's also comprehensive, covering the basics from installation of Joomla and getting started with articles, right through to where to get extensions and templates. The book is written for Joomla 1.6.2, but I still found it usable for Joomla 3.0.3. It's amazing how quickly software moves on. I pity the authors of technical books, who have to revise their work every twelve months to keep it reasonably up to date.

Save yourself some money and just read tutorials online. You will get the same or more out of it.

The book also goes over and over the same material, 'practicing' what you just read. The book could convey the same info in 1/4 the pages.

All in all, I read though it but never picked it up when working with Joomla. It is just not useful at all as a reference.

Gave it 2 starts because the cover is nice and I didn't find any typos.

Having attended Ostraining classes in Atlanta, I have a very high regard for the author Steve and his team. This book is written with examples from Joomla 1.6, which carry over to 1.7 and is very helpfull even to experienced users, as a reference to many things that have changed a bit from version to version. I recommend it for all, especially the new user.
