Joomla is a great product for the right audience and this book is perfect for them!
I was really looking for some more in depth information about how to get Joomla to perform some functions to solve my needs.
This text does not (nor was it design to) explain the modules & extensions. I am using the Chronoforms, JEvents, PHP & MySQL to make a complete solution. I need something which could tie it all together.
As far as discovering the issues with Joomla, this book does a great job.
This is a shame. This 'Bible' does not have a single line of PHP code inside.
It is big because it has big illustrations of webpages - impossible to see what on it anyway.
Helpful for new users or the Joomla curious but clever Admins can manage without.
