Lacking in Introductory Material?
on October 29, 2012
Not coming from a 'joomla' background I found this book to be very lacking in introductory information. New constructs are introduced such as on page 73 where a 'tpl_' value is prepended onto the template name without any explanation of what it is or where it is coming from.
Very confusing. It is only later that you learn that the tpl_ is a naming convention for language files.
To be fair, it may have been mentioned prior to page 73 but I can't find it anywhere in the index.
The book is a pretty tough go for me.
Best of luck in your reading / parsing of this text.
