Transcript of "Joomla! 101 - Getting started & Finding help (level: Beginner)"

  1. 1. Joomla! 101: Getting Started & Finding Help 18-19 October 2013
  2. 2. What is Joomla! • Joomla! is an award-winning Content Management System (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla! the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla! is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone. 18-19 October 2013
  3. 3. What's a content management system (CMS)? • A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. • A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to. 18-19 October 2013
