Overview

As a major force in the world of affordable, advanced web site deployment, Joomla! has become the most important noncommercial Content Management System (CMS) in the world. The number of Joomla! downloads and add-ons continues to grow at lightning pace, spurring the need for a resource that explores the diverse needs of professional Joomla! developers. This book fills that void by covering the two main areas of the Joomla! field--development and deployment--with a focus on the new Joomla! version 1.5 and all the features it provides.

Seasoned author Dan Rahmel walks you through the process of creating all three types of Joomla! extensions (modules, components, and plug-ins), explains how best to use Ajax technology, and shows you how to adopt design patterns and incorporate source code control. You'll examine the underlying technologies (PHP, Apache, etc.) that can be tuned to offer the best system performance, and you'll explore interfacing with outside content, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) setup, and much more. You'll even delve into the internal structure of the Joomla! framework, and obtain a unique behind-the-scenes education so that you can modify and extend Joomla! to meet the needs of you and your customers.

What you will learn from this book

* How each server of a Joomla! system can be installed and configured for maximum performance
*

    Please avoid this book

    I'm a web programmer tasked with learning Joomla while moving an existing static web site onto it. I understand PHP, CSS, and the MVC pattern quite well. This book was less than useless -- it was a time-waster that set me back at least a day on the project and taught me almost nothing.

    From their buzzwords "Professional" and "programmer-to-programmer", I expected to learn something about the detailed inner workings of Joomla -- how the interface works and how it directly relates to code in modules, components, and templates. Most of this information simply isn't there, and anything useful you can find is brief, disorganized, buried in irrelevant filler content, and even a little confusing.

    The author spends several paragraphs on the topic of IE not being standards compliant; and he spends several PAGES on how to create a rounded-rectangle appearance using CSS and Photoshop (I found this to be nothing less than an insult); and several CHAPTERS on how to build a successful web site and community -- important topics, but having very little to do with PROGRAMMING.

    It's clear that Wrox slapped this thing together with enough filler to make it look substantial. That's deceit for you. Avoid this book. I'm returning it today.
