Book Review: "Joomla! Explained" by Steve Burge

Book Review: "Joomla! Explained"  by Steve Burge

This month’s featured book is "Joomla! Explained — Your Step-by-Step Guide" by Steve Burge. The book is a great learning tool for newbies and an excellent everyday reference for Joomla! content publishers and managers. It’s equally valuable as a training resource for the website builders who want to use select chapters as standalone tutorials for their clients, and can serve as a sustainable hands-on knowledge management component for any organization that has deployed and is using Joomla! to establish and grow its web presence.

Review "Joomla! 1.5 Top Extensions Cookbook"

Review "Joomla! 1.5 Top Extensions Cookbook"
Like the Joomla! Site Blueprints we reviewed earlier the Joomla! 1.5 Top Extensions Cookbook contains a step-by-step approach. With over 80 recipes for taking control of Joomla! extensions, this is a great book for getting to know many extensions. Again, I do recognize this is about J! 1.5 - 1.6 is out, but even today we see new extensions for 1.5 appearing in the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Review "Joomla! 1.5 Site Blueprints"

Review "Joomla! 1.5 Site Blueprints"

Yes, I have heard the rumors. Joomla! 1.6 is out. So why review a book on 1.5? My main two reasons are: 1.) If you want a “production” site working now with a stable version of Joomla! and stable versions of the extensions used. 2.) This book is a great starting point to get into Joomla!. Yes, it is called “Joomla! 1.5 Site Blueprints”, and even author Timi Ogunjobi states that this book is not an introduction to Joomla!, nor an in-depth manual for using Joomla!; but... it's the book I wish I had picked up when I first got started with Joomla!.
