Installing and configuring a Joomla! CMS is relatively easy even for the beginner. However, installation is only the beginning if you are planning a complex site. The art of configuration and integration will be key to a successful implementation. Remember there are over 7500+ extensions for Joomla and for the newbie you will need to involve yourself in extensive research to make sure you make the right choices when it comes to selecting your components. The reason for this is that you have to be careful to make sure your components are supported and compatible with the particular installation of Joomla and other associated extensions.
For simple sites if you have the time and inclination you can get a good Joomla book from someplace like www.packtpublishing.com and sign up at a good hosting provider that would be willing to help with tech support on your hosting for a joomla environment (NOTE: most do not provide support for applications such as Joomla running on their servers).
The reality is that with anything beyond simple, if you want to interact with your site in a simple way or lack the technical expertise to program around version changes and security patches, then you are going to need a professional team such as CNP Integrations to help you manoeuvre through the complexities, train and mentor you in the basics and be there to support you throughout the process.
Call or email the team at CNP Integrations for more information on how we can help you achieve your business goals for an effective implementation of a Joomla Content Management System.
