Joomla!
 
Fast!
 
For
 
version
 
2.5.4
 
Preface
 
The
 
original
 
'Learn
 
Joomla!
 
1.5
 
Fast!'
 
was
 
a
 
great
 
introduction
 
to
 
Joomla!
 
1.5
 
by
 
Saurabh
 
R.
 
Bhide.
 
This
 
is
 
a
 
re
write
 
for
 
version
 
2.5.4
 
with
 
corrections,
 
updates
 
and
 
additions
 
by
 
Tinus
 
van
 
de
 
Wouw.
 
Thank
 
you
 
for
 
deciding
 
to
 
read
 
this
 
book.
 
We
 
have
 
written
 
this
 
book
 
for
 
you
 
to
 
learn
 
Joomla
 
2.5
 
as
 
fast
 
as
 
possible.
 
This
 
book
 
is
 
meant
 
to
 
be
 
read
 
cover
to
cover,
 
and
 
all
 
you
 
have
 
to
 
do
 
is
 
read
 
a
 
page,
 
do
 
what
 
it
 
says,
 
and
 
go
 
ahead.
 
After
 
completing
 
all
 
the
 
tasks
 
in
 
the
 
book,
 
you
 
will
 
be
 
a
 
fluent
 
Joomla
 
user,
 
ready
 
to
 
make
 
typical
 
content
 
websites.
 
When
 
I
 
first
 
came
 
across
 
Joomla,
 
I
 
found
 
it
 
easy
 
to
 
install,
 
but
 
a
 
bit
 
difficult
 
to
 
learn
 
the
 
administration.
 
Even
 
more
 
difficult
 
to
 
learn
 
was
 
how
 
to
 
customize
 
the
 
site
 
as
 
per
 
my
 
requirements.
 
There
 
were
 
many
 
tutorials
 
out
 
there
 
that
 
explained
 
different
 
tasks,
 
but
 
not
 
a
 
single
 
one
 
that
 
explained
 
how
 
to
 
install,
 
modify
 
and
 
administer
 
a
 
Joomla
 
website
 
as
 
per
 
my
 
needs.
 
Hence,
 
I
 
learned
 
Joomla
 
the
 
harder
 
way
 
by
 
trying
 
out
 
different
 
tutorials,
 
experimenting
 
different
 
buttons
 
in
 
the
 
administration,
 
and
 
seeing
 
what
 
happens.
 
I
 
gradually
 
became
 
fluent
 
in
 
making
 
and
 
administrating
 
Joomla
 
websites.
 
However,
 
the
 
bad
 
part
 
is
 
this
 
whole
 
process
 
took
 
6
 
months!
 
Now,
 
we
 
have
 
written
 
this
 
book
 
in
 
such
 
a
 
way
 
that
 
you
 
will
 
learn
 
all
 
that
 
within
 
a
 
single
 
weekend,
 
or
 
2
 
days.
 
If 
 
you
 
have
 
started
 
reading
 
this
 
book
 
this
 
morning,
 
you
 
will
 
be
 
able
 
to
 
make
 
any
 
type
 
of 
 
Joomla
 
websites
 
by
 
tomorrow
 
evening.
 
So,
 
tell
 
everyone
 
you're
 
busy,
 
order
 
some
 
pizza
 
and
 
drinks,
 
and
 
learn
 
Joomla!
 
Note:
 
To
 
improve
 
readability 
 
we
 
removed 
 
the
 
'!' 
 
 from
 
 Joomla!
