Joomla 2.5 Tutorials

Joomla 2.5 is a complex content management system that is extremely powerful and versatile. Joomla 2.5 is being used by individuals, small and medium sized businesses. I created my first Joomla website way back and found no documentation, so I started to create my own.  See my Joomla 2.5 tutorials on how to use :

  • User Manager

Also on how to create articles, create modules, add banners, and all the other functionalities of Joomla.  Below is my Joomla 2.5 repository of Joomla documentation and tutorials that I created for you.
