Turns out, it can be pretty hard! With the Joomla project in a transition period before its latest version (coined 1.5), I was trying to write a book about a moving target. The code base was changing and the version evolving.
After over a year in development, the have-to-have book about 1.5 is finally hitting shelves and shipping from the publishers and Amazon.com.
The stable version of Joomla 1.5 is weeks away, and I am very pleased to announce the availability of my book to go along with this momentous occasion.
I think that this book offers amazing value and I have packed it along with some great downloads you get with the book:
You get free access to the companion site, www.joomlabook.com. This site features:
- an active forum where you can ask questions specific to chapters from the book from a Joomla expert (well, me anyway)
- 5 fully functional Joomla 1.5 live follow-along examples from the book. You can browse the sites and their backends live online.
- downloads of 5 free sample chapters and files for Joomla 1.5. These are SQL dumps you can import to instantly give you a completed Joomla site. This means you can create a school, blog or small business site instantly!
- 4 free tutorial templates and 3 free templates from joomlashack.com including our popular commercial template – JS Aqualine!
