    Anyone struggling with Joomla might find the tutorials on lynda.com quite useful. It's worth the $25/month for them alone but there are 100's of other software tutorials on there as well. IMHO it's a great resource and can save you hours of frustration with 100's of software packages.

    New to the Joomla! scene thanks for the tip!! With little to no experience in code do you think I will be able to set up a forefront website for my small company without help.

    What advice would you give for Web Hosting Joomla! a basic website.

    I would like to have links to Videos, a few pictures, possible set up to a payment gateway down the line for coupons etc.

    Thanks

    You can get by without any knowledge of coding - with a decent template and a bit of thought decent sites can be devised from pre-packed modules which offer simple menu tweaking from the back end.

    It's when you want to start getting fancy that knowledge of coding and looking inside the files and altering them becomes necessary.

    I found the free basic course on http://www.buildajoomlawebsite.com good enough to get me going, and their regular emails contain useful tips too - The Australian accent will grate on some though!

    We've just been offered a package from BT for a redesigned website integrating a forum, 20 email addresses and that is based on Joomla, which I haven't used before (our current one is Word Press). It sounds good, they give us online training on how to maintain it once they've designed the site, they provide SEO and apparently Joomla is a lot easier to work with than Word Press.

    That remains to be seen, and I need to find out more about it, but initial impressions are favourable.

    The question you need to answer is why do you want to get a new site? Is it the design, the platform or a natual progression.

    Don't be bullied into moving platform if you're happy on WordPress. Joomla has a much longer learning curve than wp, and moving platforms can throw up some obstacles in regards to seo.

    Thanks for the info, will take that on board. I'm not actually driving this personally, but it would seem that there are good reasons for the change from what I have been told.
