Book Description


Today, millions of websites rely on Joomla - from personal sites to those of huge organizations like Nintendo, Peugeot and famous people like Michael Phelps. Now, using Joomla 3, you too can create websites that are mobile-ready, responsive, flexible, powerful, and secure - even if you're an absolute beginner.

In Joomla 3 Explained, top Joomla trainer Stephen Burge teaches you everything you need to know to build a Joomla site. Burge has taught thousands of Joomla newcomers and thousands more who've experimented with Joomla but haven't mastered it yet. Nobody knows more about guiding you up the Joomla learning curve.

Burge and the OSTraining team make learning fun. Like their online training, you learn by following enjoyable, step-by-step instructions. OSTraining books are written in plain English and are supported by plenty of online documentation and videos.

You'll master Joomla 3 hands-on, through a complete case study, crystal-clear visuals, simple explanations, and on-target analogies, all extensively tested with real Joomla beginners.

Burge walks you through installing Joomla 3, planning sites that are easy to use and manage, adding content, and incorporating powerful site features without programming. Finally, Burge shows you how to run your site securely and efficiently, no matter how big or popular it becomes!
