John's tips to help you build a great, Joomla! powered website

Joomla Tutorial Sites

It takes a while to learn to think like Joomla thinks.

Fortunately, everything you need to know is available on the internet. There are some wonderful resources available online to help you get through the initial learning curve of this powerful system.

And, I've put several of my favorites and most recommended tutorial sources below.  Some of these sites are free. Others have a very reasonable charge.

JoomlaTutorials.com

logo_joomla_tutorials_1There are a lot of very good Joomla tutorials available on Joomla Tutorials.  This site by Brad Baker, one of the Joomla Core Team and a principal of Rochen, a premiere Joomla hosting service.
