Learning Joomla

Joomla makes it easy to keep your site current!  We show you how.

Many types of websites can be built and maintained more easily using a content management system (CMS) such as Joomla. A CMS provides a web-based interface for creating and organizing content. The content is stored in a database, then consistently presented according to a set of templates and preferences, which eliminates the need to handcraft each page in HTML. Joomla! is a popular, easy-to-use, open-source CMS built in PHP. It has near-limitless functionality, thanks to its community of extension developers.

Accordingly, once a Joomla site has been created, the site owner can easily keep it fresh and current. Indeed, changes to the site can be made directly over the internet with any browser! No need for any other software.
