Easy Steps to Build a Joomla Website
Some Joomla website designers may try to complicate the process of designing websites powered by Joomla but it is not as difficult as it seems. All you need is just a few simple steps.

The following are the steps which you can follow and note that these steps are in sequential order. Since, you are not that professional to start building a Joomla site from anywhere, it is better you follow it step by step.

1.Install Joomla: First things first, install Joomla on your site. There are numerous ways to do that. One common way is to install CMS by using “Fantastico” on hosting account Control Panel. This takes hardly any time and is the easiest way to install Joomla. The other way is to install manually. You have to upload the Joomla installation package on the site and follow the instructions given there.

2.Configure Joomla: After you complete the installation part, you can login to the Joomla admin area or the Backend to configure it. The admin area directory is the administrator directory of the Joomla site. Once you login, click on the “Site” tab on the left side and select “Global Configuration” link. There will be instructions given on how to configure the site, server and system information. Follow the instructions and it hardly takes 3 to 10 minutes to complete.

3.Joomla content: The next step is to create the content categories, sections or pages. These sections are the widest divisions of content on the site. The categories are only the sub divisions of the content while the content pages are just pieces of content posted under each category.

4.Menus: The menu or site navigation system comes under several categories. Under each category there will be menu items. You can have the menu items point towards any links your want.

5.Customizing the site: With Joomla websites, you can easily customize and modify it as much or as little as you please. The customization can be done by installing new templates and modifying them as per your taste. You can also modify the default Joomla template, install new Joomla components, install or modify the modules and change the position.

The above steps are easy to follow and you can try out with no hassle. But, if you still think that these steps are way above your intelligence, you can always hire a Joomla web designer.
