Great tutorial, but your audio quality is really poor. the level is really low, it makes it hard to hear your commentary even with the volume turned all the way up. Could you repost?

never mind… I figured out the audio. My fault I need sleep! :)

merci pour tes video. le seul que j’ai trouve qui explique comment creer un site avec joomla de zero! car je connais parfaitement XHTLM/CSS moins PHP quoique ce vient, et faire un site sur un site deja code ca n’est pas du tout mon truc! je prefere le coder totalement moi meme. mais pour les personnes a qui je vais creer un site il leur faut un CMS afin qu’ils puissent le gerer. Et tes videos m’ont bien aidees! merci

If you saw that other comments I made were removed I did that because I was lost, posting questions, but I sorted myself out.

Thanks for the videos! I was able to stop less than half way through this third one and make my own custom template. I’m not able to express the appreciation. Anyone that complains about these videos, for any reason, has serious issues.

I am curious to know your thoughts on whether a template can be made for joomla using HTML, or maybe just the php file?
