20 Useful Resources for Joomla Beginners

December is a busy month for me where one of the toughest task, probably is to recreate my company’s portal. This is when I finally started to read up and try on the powerful Joomla CMS.

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. Click here to understand more of its features.
Here are 10 tutorials on the Joomla fundamentals that I think are important for beginners like myself. You will need to understand the relationships between sections, categories, articles and modules before learning how to make a Joomla site.










After learning the basic theories, I bet most of us will want to get some free downloads and find out how to customize Joomla templates better. Unfortunately, most of the free Joomla templates available are not really as high quality as those we see from WordPress. I managed to compile 5 of my personal favorites here.





If you have some budget to work with, followings are some places to get the beautiful commercial templates. Make sure you visit RocketTheme!

      At first I didn’t think Joomla is good either due to its complicated interfaces. But I am beginning to like it as I go along learning how to use its functions.

  8. I’m not a fan of Joomla but this seems a solid collection.
