Overview

The Joomla! Bible, Second Edition provides a complete guide to building and managing websites with the Joomla! open source content management system. The book covers the process of obtaining the code, then deploying it to a server. The set-up portion of the text also covers configuring the site for various purposes and how to create and manage content and user hierarchies. Content management is dealt with in detail. Users are shown how to create, modify and delete content items. The text explains the many varied options that are available to content managers and how to minimize and manage site complexity. Included in the Joomla! core are a number of modules that provide advanced functionality, including the Polls Module, the Banner Manager, the Media Manager, Weblinks, Content Syndication, and Newsfeed Aggregation. All of the basic and extended core functionalities are covered in full detail, including tips for getting the most out of each. The Joomla! Bible, Second Edition will also help users understand the differences between the Joomla! Platform and the Joomla! CMS and how to select the appropriate system for their needs. Readers will be able to extend their learning beyond the book by gaining an awareness of the online Joomla! resources, including the Extensions site, where users can find and download extensions that add additional functionality to their Joomla! site. With more than 8,000 extensions listed in the directory, the site contains literally too many choices for most users. In the text we will identify the most useful extensions for common functions like site maintenance and enhancement of the core functionality (e.g., Galleries, Newsletters, etc.). While the book will only touch on most extensions, considerable space will be spent discussing two systems: JomSocial and VirtueMart. JomSocial is a complex extension that turns Joomla! into a web 2.0-type community website platform. This is a complex extension - virtually a system all its own. Similarly, VirtueMart is a complex extension that adds multiple functionalities, in this case, to turn Joomla! into a full ecommerce and catalog management system. Both of these important extensions are explained in detail, including installation, configuration and management.
