Visual QuickStart Guides are now even more visual: Building on the success of the top-selling Visual QuickStart Guide books, Peachpit now offers Video QuickStarts. As a companion to the book, Peachpit offers more than an hour of short, task-based videos that will help you master Joomla’s top features and techniques; instead of just reading about how to use a tool, you can watch it in action. It’s a great way to learn all the basics and some of the newer or more complex features of the program. Log on to the Peachpit site at www.peachpit.com/register to register your book, and you’ll find a free streaming sample; purchasing the rest of the material is quick and easy.
This task-based guide is the perfect tool for those just starting with Joomla. It shows how to create, customize, and maintain a dynamic Joomla 1.6 website starting with fundamental concepts, and then going through essential features. You'll learn not only the functions of Joomla—such as adding content and structure, creating categories and menus, and using the media manager, modules, and templates-but also how each function works with the whole.¿
