Getting the most from Joomla with Video Tutorials

This area contains a number of user guides that I have written as well as some that I have copied from and enhanced with a focus on features used most heavily in websites developed by Websites With Purpose.  This includes user guides and video tutorials for extensions that I commonly use.

New guides and video tutorials are being added all the time so bookmark this page.  As well as Joomla tutorials there are also tutorials on commonly used tools such as Gimp.  Basically I create tutorials as I get requests from users.

Introduction to the Joomla 1.5 user access levels

Joomla has a lot of flexibility in allowing users access to write, edit and publish articles. In Joomla terminology an article is a page in your website. In other words, if you can use an email editor like Outlook Express you can publish pages to your website....but only if the Administrator gives you access.

Within Joomla there are various access levels that restrict who can add content or access restricted information such as a download page. The access levels are as follows:
