Anyone who knows me knows I have a bit of a sweet tooth and I'm a sucker for chocolate, cheesecake and ice cream. It's extremely hard for me to walk past the local gelato shop. As I yield to temptation, I'm affronted with an assortment of flavours and mix-ins. I can choose between standard or sugar cones or have it in a cup. I can tailor my order for the likes and dislikes of my family, and get serving sizes that are realistic for their appetite (or my budget). Decisions, decisions ...

This month I'll try to clarify how Joomla works for users without any technical knowledge. We will start by defining Joomla as a CMS (Content Management System). That means that Joomla does... what? It's easy: Joomla allows you to manage any "content" on the internet which covers just about anything you can think of.

I sometimes come across Joomla sites that are built only for blogging. There are a lot of possibilities: you can use Joomla native , K2, and all sorts of CCKs. Today I decided to test an extension from the community choice extensions poll from several months back. Let's put EasyBlog from Stackideas on the bench...

Tra le tante nuove funzionalità rilasciate con la versione 3.2 di Joomla!, forse una delle meno pubblicizzate ma sicuramente molto utile per amministratori ed interessante per gli sviluppatori, è la cosidetta "post-installation messages", informa l'amministratore del sito circa l'avvenuta installazione di estensioni e funzionalità che richiedono la sua attenzione, vediamo nel dettaglio le sue caratteristiche e come usarlo.
