pakct.joomla.1.5.blueprint  A warm thanks to PACKT publishing for having sent me this book free of charge for review!

The author of the book recounts the examples of how to quickly create a variety of web projects using CMS Joomla!. From the book you will learn how to edit menu, set extensions, work with the extensions, setting up the comments and maps from Google Map’s and much more.


I will offer this book randomly to one of my twitter follower!!!! more details in next post.



It present how to build 10 different sites with more or less complexity. Something that will greatly help the beginner that is starting without any prior knowledge.

In fact the eleven chapters are covering

  1. Installation and configuration
  2. Business page
  3. Club page
  4. On-line magazine
  5. Events web page
  6. Social networking
  7. Shop
  8. Directory
  9. Gallery
  10. Google maps
  11. RSS web page

This book is clearly targeted at beginner, programmer of the CMS wont learn anything new, Except mainly to know a solid book to offer as a start to your relatives (In fact I will surely win a lot of time, as it covered all the basics, a lot of areas that take time to explain over and over to my friends).

Picture and illustrations are of a good size, and all steps are well documented. It will certainly be of a great help to many people that are wanting to build their first site using Joomla!
