Book Review Building Websites with Joomla by Hagen Graf

Guest Author - Diane Cipollo



Author: Hagen Graf
ISBN: 1904811949
Publisher: Packt Publishing
323 pages
Published: Jan 2006

Joomla is a free, open source content management system and this book, by Hagen Graf, will show you everything about how to install and use Joomla for your website. The only thing you need to get started is PHP, Apache and MySQLR. Joomla's modular structure allows the user to customize and extend the basic setup to meet their needs.

Graf begins by discussing Joomla's various features and gives a general overview of how the program can be applied in real world situations. He then begins to give step-by-step instructions for how to install Joomla. Because the purpose of Joomla is content management, Graf explains in detail the program's structure and how to enter and organize your content.

After covering the default setup, Graf talks about extensions components, modules and mambots which are three ways to extend and customize Joomla. There are many of these extensions available on the web that can be used with or have been written specifically for Joomla. Graf discusses a few of his favorites. First, he talks about the Simpleboard component and accompanying modules which will add a forum to the Joomla base program. He also covers the Events Calendar component and accompanying modules. Next, he discusses the gallery component called zOOm Media Gallery and the E-Commerce component called VirtueMart.

You can customize more than just Joomla's functionality and Graf explains how to create your own webpage templates to customize the appearance of your site. You can even use Adobe R DreamweaverR to create these custom templates. Finally, for those readers who have a special need that has not yet been addressed, Graf shows how to create your own extensions.

Hagen Graf has been programming since the late 70's and now works in his wife's consulting company as well as many other projects. He has written three computer books in his native German language and two have been translated into English.
