Book Description

Joomla! is a powerful CMS used to build all kinds of websites. But when you're urgently tasked with building a specific kind of site, it's not always obvious which extensions to use or where to begin. Imagine how easy it would be if you had some simple directions to create Joomla! websites for personal or business use within a day. Would you be interested?

This book will give you a competitive edge by helping you to rapidly implement prototype web projects for personal and business use. With this book almost anyone with just a bit of Joomla! knowledge can build a useful web application and tailor it to his or her needs.

This book is a project-based guide to developing web applications with Joomla!. It will take you through all the steps to build different types of Joomla! websites and guide you to get your new site up and running in a couple of hours without employing a developer. It should enable you to take full advantage of the powerful core features offered by the Joomla! framework together with the many available contributed modules and themes to develop applications within hours. You will be guided, by means of illustrated hands-on example projects, to build foundation projects that you can easily adapt or enhance to create even more powerful web projects. If you want to develop exciting web applications for profit or pleasure this book is for you.

However, this book is not an introduction to Joomla!, nor an in-depth manual for using Joomla!; and even though it partially covers some basics such as installation and how to create articles, this is only done in the process of building the featured projects. Readers should; therefore, already have an understanding of the basic Joomla! terminologies, how to access and to use the administration pages, and also how to customize by uploading and engaging new templates. The book's appendix also offers plenty of useful advice and references on this.

When you have completed each project, you will have the knowledge and confidence to apply the techniques you have learned to create your own custom web application. You may also combine projects from several chapters to create your own killer web application.
