Create Professional Quality Joomla! 1.5 Templates for your Website.

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 | News | Joomla!

Packt is pleased to announce a new book on Joomla! 1.5, which aims to help users debug, validate, and package templates. Written by Tessa Blakely Silver, Joomla! 1.5 Template Design is a complete guide for web designers to create unique website templates for Joomla! 1.5.

Joomla! is an award-winning Content Management System (CMS), which enables users to build websites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla one of the most popular CMSes available.  Joomla! 1.5 has a radically enhanced template system that is very different from that of Joomla! 1.0, and comes complete with the ability to create template overrides and customize "module chrome".

Joomla! 1.5 Template Design focuses squarely on the new enhancements to the Joomla! 1.5 templating process and walks web designers through the process of turning a working XHTML and CSS "mockup" into a fully functional Joomla! 1.5 template. It is designed to help users create effective and flexible templates and help them tweak their existing templates with Flash, extensions and JavaScript libraries.

Users will learn to set up a basic workflow for Joomla! template design and create  Suckerfish drop-down menus and dynamic forms for their website. They will also learn how to package finished templates in a ZIP file and use the W3C's XHTML and CSS validation tools. Additionally, they will also learn how to use the wrapper (Wrapper Menu Item) for fully working AJAX applications.This book is aimed at web designers who want to create their own unique templates for Joomla! 1.5. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.packtpub.com/joomla-1-5-template-design-2nd-edition/book
