Book Description

Your complete guide to the Joomla! content management system

Whether you use Joomla! to power a website, intranet, or blog, you'll need a good how-to reference on this complex, but not always intuitive, content management software. Joomla! Bible, Second Edition is that book. It not only brings you up to speed on the changes and extensions that are now part of Joomla! 3.0, it thoroughly covers functions and tasks, including installation, configuration, management, advanced modules, and extended coverage of two key extensions.

You'll learn how to obtain code and deploy it to a server; how to obtain, modify, and delete content; how to choose between the Joomla! Platform and the Joomla! CMS; and more. By the time you finish the Joomla! Bible, Second Edition, you'll be well prepared to build and maintain a Joomla!-based website.

  • Walks you through obtaining the Joomla! 3.0 code and how to deploy it to a server, configure the site, create content, and manage content and user hierarchies

  • Helps you get the most out of core modules that provide advanced functionality, including the Polls Module, the Banner Manager, Content Syndication, Newsfeed Aggregation, and others

  • Includes hands-on tutorials and real-world practical applications

Whether you're a content manager, website manager, developer, or do-it-yourselfer, make sure you keep Joomla! Bible, Second Edition on hand.
