Описание: When planning what should be in a book about Joomla!, we thought haul about the process we go through when building Web sites and when helping others build sites. We decided that this book should be about building a Web site using joomlal rather than how to use joomlal to build a Web site. Even though you can make aWeb site using loomla! in a few hours (or less), most likely it won't be a great site, and it won’t allow you take advantage of the power of Joomla! The focus should always be on how you envision your site, the goals of the site, and the audiences you want to reach rather than on the technology used to create it. Fortunately, with its combination of power and ease of use Joomla! lets you keep your focus on the big picture of your site and the small details of your content and not on mastering a complicated set of processes. This is why we start with a thorough discussion of things to think about you start building your site. We've also built a set of very simple sample sites that will give you a good idea of the initial process of thinking about and then building sites for various purposes.We hope that you'll follow along with the construction of those sites so that you understand the process that site developers use. If you do these tasks first, you will be ready to build your own site with confidence and a good plan. In addition, we try to help you have a basic understanding of how Joomla! really works “under the hood" so that when you are ready to take advantage of the power that comes with its extensibility, you will have the knowledge to do that in the right way. We think that, like us, you will want to steadily increase the sophistication of your site and your knowledge and understanding of Joomla! So, we've written this book with the idea of giving you a strong foundation for the future of your site and other sites you may build in the future. Free and open source software is empowering, but you need to have solid knowledge of the fundamentals to take advantage of it. We're passionate about Joomla!, and we hope that you will be, too. That's why we take time in this book to introduce you to the joomla! project and the joomla! co1mnunity. We hope that you'll want to become an active participant in the Joomla! world. And we hope that you enjoy building your site so much that you end up building other sites for the friends, family members, organizations, or causes you care about.
