This book is a fast paced tutorial to creating a website using Mambo. If you’ve never used Mambo, or even any web content management system before, then this book will walk you through each step in a friendly and accessible way. From installation, to initial set up and content entry and then on to customization for your own look and feel, this book will get you to a stable and working Mambo based web site fast. You don’t have to be an experienced web developer or designer to get a great looking site with a full set of functions using this book and Mambo. This book will guide you through every step.
The book begins by introducing Mambo and concepts behind content management. Then the installation of Mambo, and its supporting software [Apache/MySQL/PHP] is covered clearly and simply. Once you have the installation up and running, we then take a tour of Mambo as it appears out of the box, to familiarize ourselves with how it works and what is what. As you take the tour, your own ideas for what you need in your new website begin to crystallise around what you can see Mambo is capable of.
We then build our web application, using the features of Mambo that are essential to our purpose. We try not to spend time on things that don’t matter at this point. Once we have a base version of our site up, we then learn how to change its appearance and feature set to suit our particular requirements, including bringing it into line with an established corporate identity. At the end of the book we show how, if you have the skills and the need, you can add your own extensions to Mambo.
