All About Joomla Layouts


This month's topic is all about Joomla Layouts! We'll look at examples of the many different article & category layouts that are built into Joomla. How and when to use them, and how to create custom layouts.

The meetup starts at 7pm with introductions. Followed by a demonstration of our featured topic for about an hour. The remainder of the meetup is open discussion on any topic that you suggest. Wrapping up by 9pm. Bring your laptops and your Joomla questions!

    What's the name of the station on the hanzomon line I have to get out of?

    I'll have a bunch of beginner questions, particularly on what plug ins or modules people have found work well for slide shows.

    And for that matter, how is a plugin and a module really different? In terms of functionality, they seem the same.

    Feel free to unconfuse me.

      Hi Antonio. Our other members have suggested this topic from the last meetup. But since our meetups are 2 hours, Only the first hour will be about the weekly topic. And the next hour will be an open discussion, where you can ask your questions. Please do come this time!
