Well Laid Out And Informative,
This review is from: The Official Joomla! Book (Joomla! Press) (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I first saw the Joomla Book, I was not sure what to expect. Although the book has no color photos or illustrations, the book is very well laid out.
There is great history, a chapter that helps you outline your purpose for using Joomla, how to install and set up Joomla, use templates, SEOs, search engine optimization, navigation, how to use Joomla for business, how to call attention to your site, using Joomla for education, non-profit, and schools. There is information to streamline sites and control what people can do and see on your site.
The glossary and index are well laid out and set up and easy to use.
Although I have not used the book extensively yet, I found it to be very helpful and interesting for basic web site construction, but it is always useful to have some knowledge of web site construction and internet, which I do. I am not sure if this book would be as easy to use for someone who does not have internet experience or web building.
I like this book and plan to use it more in the future.
