  • Do you mean the one with the white background and woman in the parka?

    Where I show how the text size can be changed? That’s from JoomlaArt (I don’t recommend them anymore) and it’s called Antares

  • This is software you download but install into your website hosting account. You need a domain name, hosting space, a few web tools like FTP client and text editor and then you’re ready to go.

    There are installation instructions on Joomla’s site. Sorry, I can’t insert links here.

  • I started off hand coding in Notepad in 1999 so I hear you.

    Yes, content management systems (CMS) like Joomla are easy to use and much faster to update than hand coding.

    I am actually recommending that people try WordPress instead of Joomla for a new website.

    Both have showcases on their sites, check them out to find out what’s best for your needs.

  • Yes, building a site from scratch takes skills. A CMS like Joomla or WordPress, combined with a great theme/template can have you up and running quickly.

  • Thanks for that, your video helped get me started I’m still struggling with joomla but I’ve only been at it for about 3 hours. 🙂

    May I ask why you don’t use the themes from that website anymore ?

  • Do you know any templates that suite a theme of a wifi hotspot business.
    I would prefer a free one if possible ?

    Ive been looking but fail to find and nice simple clean ones.
    Any suggestions ?

    Cheers

  • Neat to make your own look..not have a cookie cutter like most out there. Helpful, workable, not cluttered is way way better than pretty and puffy and stuffy.

  • I’ve been out of the web technology for a few, well, several years now, do you think the Joomla for Dummies book is a good place to start?

  • I suggest the best place to start is at the Joomla website. Any book you purchase on website development, CMS’s or even social media will be outdated by the time of publishing.

    There is a TON of great info on the Joomla website. I would also encourage you to attend a local meetup with other people who like Joomla.

    Best way to brush up.

    I offer training as well but no Joomla until April 2010 🙁

  • I wish I was at home to give the book titles. I have two books. The main thing you want to look for if you are in a book store is does it show you how to write modules for joomla. I have written a few for work. If you reply to this I will get a notice and can reply when I’m at home.

  • @fatsotomuscles

    I got the book and i quite like it. It doesnt go into great detail, but for a nice overview it is a nice to have

  • Joomla is awesome. But i’d recommend a local install on XAMP or WAMP plus a good book to learn it’s slightly convoluted methods of doing cms before going live. It’s much easier that ftp bashing on a live site. Thumbs up for Joomla 1.5

  • I’m wanting to create a support group website and also add a really good recipe section. What do you or anyone else suggest to use? Joomla, WordPress, Dreamweaver? I can create websites, but I don’t know coding. I have always gotten by though. Thanks in advance

  • I’m going to make a website and I just gotta say that my host is awsome. It has joomla, drupal and more. 😛 Different blogs, forums and all stuff you can except 😛 It’s too easy with that package 😀

  • Adria I have two site I need to get up. One is a Videography site the other is a paranormal any suggestions for templates?

  • @GlobalDating yes, Joomla is free. It’s open source so that means it’s developed by the community for the community
