    Re: Do any of you know anything about Joomla

    I recently installed Joomla on a new hosting account and poked around. At first blush, its functionality was not obvious. When I get some free time, I plan to visit some other Joomla sites to figure out what features and add-ons I want to use.

    Re: Do any of you know anything about Joomla

    Agree I have just installed it and working through the starter manual, which guilds you through building your own site/Intranet.

    What I would like to know is how to change the main template. I not sure where to start!!!! If I design a template in Dreamweaver for example, how do I incorporate that in to joomla.

    Anyway we have much to learn from joomla, there forums is not very good, they never respond to posts.

    If you find any way of doing this let me know.

    Cheers

    Will

    Re: Do any of you know anything about Joomla

    I've never heard of this beast but being curious I've followed a few links and come across this, it might answer your question about changing template:
    http://help.joomla.org/ghop/feb2008/task033/033 - Create a document explaining how to modify the default Template.zip

    If The Lounge mangles that long link you'll find it about 3/4 the way down this page:
    http://docs.joomla.org/Beginners
    under 'Learn the Basics for Joomla! Templating, Minor Default Template Changes, How to modifiy the default Template.

    Re: Do any of you know anything about Joomla

    Thanks Ken that helped. The next step I would like to get in to is how to design a template in Dreamweaver and import that in to Joomla. There is not much help out there. I would prefer to design a template using Dreamweaver, because it does the coding for you.

    I will keep looking, but if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.


    Thanks.
