Joomla is a free content management system that has a strong niche community of passionate users. Since we have used this space to talk about WordPress a great deal, we thought we’d mix it up a bit.
If you’re already using Joomla and have some other tutorials that were helpful, put them in the comments section!
Also, if you ever want to see a certain topic covered in the HostNine blog, let us know in the comments as well!
1. Best of Joomla
This site is packed full of information from multiple users. There are blog-style entries and links to video tutorials. And you can see just how hot a particular post is because the site puts the information in large green boxes at the front of each entry. Looking for the most important and useful information, just click on the higher ranked tutorials.
2. Rocket Theme
Rocket Theme has a more basic layout than Best of Joomla, but the information is great, all the same. You can start off by looking at the featured videos and written entries. Once you’ve seen the most popular information you can then open it up to all of the tutorials. And all of the lessons are set up so that you can look at only those things that are relevant to your needs. There is a lot of information here, without all the bells and whistles.
Web3Mantra has over 30 video tutorials! These videos range from basic installation to managing global configuration. All 31 videos are in a list on the main page. Just click anything you’re interested in.
This site has a great deal of information from a number of amazing instructors. There are videos and written tutorials, but it’s the video that really wins the day. Lynda is set up so that the tutorials are actually courses in a particular subject. There are a few free courses, but most of the information on Lynda.com must be paid for.
