    This review is from: Joomla! Template Design: Create your own professional-quality templates with this fast, friendly guide: A complete guide for web designers to all … Joomla! 1.0.8 PHP Content Management System (Paperback)

    Joomla! Template Design covers a wide variety of topics in Web design and development, but fails to thoroughly cover the topic of the book. The topics covered range from coding to animation, with less than 10% about Joomla! templates.

    As stated, the book is targeted at Web designers, yet the author does not appear to be a designer, as the design of the template example lacks any modern design techniques or style. The single template example was not custom, as the book description promises, but a modification of the basic template that comes with Joomla!.

    It is clear that the author is passionate about Web development and the Web standards movement. Unfortunately, the book is unfocused and fails to fulfill expectations.

    I grabbed this book with great expectation, and hopeful to get started with Joomla! 1.5 template design, but after a few page turns this book turned out to be a big disappointment.

    There’s no 1.5 template coverage! The author gives an excuse regarding joomla 1.5 being in beta, and that you should never use beta software. Hum!?

    It is filled with fluff and though there are a few useful tips, and tricks the same information is available for free on blogs and articles about Joomla!

    This book gives you no bang for your buck. It is riddled with inaccuracies and half-though methodologies, looks rushed and incomplete.

    I do not recommend this book. However it’s not totally the author(s) fault. What the heck did the reviewers and the editor had in mind to print a book in this state?

    If you want to support Joomla! you better donate the money to the Joomla! foundation or documentation team!

    Amazon is still selling this for ver 1.0.8?

    Sorry, but Joomla is now at 1.5.10 and ver 1.5.x is TOTALLY different from ver 1.0.x.

    May have been a good book in its day, but now belongs in the bin with “Guide to Windows for Workgroups 3.11”
