A Bible for Joomla!

My newest title, the Joomla! Bible, is out today — here’s the press release:

Global publisher John Wiley & Sons has released the newest title in their Bible series — The Joomla! Bible. The title, authored by Ric Shreves, provides the most comprehensive documentation yet released for the award-winning Joomla! Content Management System (CMS).

The Joomla! CMS is one of the world’s most successful Open Source projects with more than 200,000 community members and users. Shreves adds, “Joomla is an advanced content management system and a complicated software package. While the system is easy enough for most people to attain a basic proficiency without extensive coaching, it is hard to reach the full potential of the system without additional guidance.”

Wiley’s Bible series strives to present comprehensive coverage of topics, and this book is no exception. Weighing in at well over 700 pages, and loaded with illustrations, the book provides thorough coverage of Joomla! 1.5, supplemented with preliminary information about the much-awaited Joomla! 1.6 release. The book covers everything from installation and configuration, to customization and extension of a site. Also discussed are popular enhancements, including the VirtueMart ecommerce system and the JomSocial social networking system.

“Joomla! has rightfully earned a reputation as a great system. Our goal was to create a book that will help users snd developers tap into the full potential of that system,” notes Shreves.

The book was released on 12 January and is currently available through most booksellers. The Joomla! Bible can also be purchased online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers. You can view more information about the book at http://www.facebook.com/JoomlaBible

If you would like to order it online, here’s a direct link to the book on Amazon.com.
