      Wide selection 3rd party software, both open-source and commercial
    • Learning the Lingo: Joomla Style
      Joomla websites are comprised of components, modules, plugins and templates.
      Component: Application that exists in the main body area. Examples: shopping carts, articles, directories, photo galleries,
      Modules: Boxes of information displayed around the main content. Examples: menus, custom text, banners, dynamic content.
      Plugins: psuedo-applications that extend underlying functionality. Examples: eMailcloaker, extended search, additional security.
      Templates: Overall presentation of content and components.
    • Learning the Lingo: Joomla Style
      Content Model – Imagine a file cabinet with drawers, folders and files.
      Sections: The drawers. You can have many sections
      Categories: The folders. Can place many categories within sections.
      Articles: The files. A file can only be placed in one category at a time.
      Note: Joomla also allows for uncategorized articles.
    • Putting it all together
      Define the functionality
      Blog, Portal, Shopping Cart, etc.
      Make an outline.
      What topic(s) will you be addressing?This will help you in accommodating articles into categories and sections.
      Choose a template: There is a plethora of free and commercial templates available at a nominal cost.
    • What is Joomla good at? Bad at?
      The Good:
      Corporate websites: presenting information
      Custom Development. Utilize the Joomla CMS for presenting articles while delivering customized applications to users.
      The Bad:
      The data model, just like Hebrew, takes a little getting used to.
      If you need a full-on blog, use Word Press. If you need a full-on shopping cart, use Magento.
      WYSIWYG is flaky for copy/pasting content.
