Joomla! is all about allowing you to create a site that matches your vision. The possibilities are limitless; this sample site will get you started.

There are a few things you should know to get you started.

Every Joomla! website has two parts: the Site (which is what your site visitors see) and the Administrator (which is where you will do a lot of the site management). You need to log in to the Administrator separately with the same username and password. There is a link to the administrator on the top menu that you will see when you log in.

You can edit articles in the Site by clicking on the edit icon. You can create a new article by clicking on the Create Article link in the top menu.

To do basic changes to the appearance your site click Home, Site Settings and Home, Template Settings.

To do more advanced things, like edit the contact form, manage users, or install a new template or extension, login to the Administrator.

Some quick tips for working in the Administrator

  • To change the image on all the pages: Go to the Module Manager and click on Image Module.
  • To edit the Side Module: Go to Extensions, Module Manager and click on Side Module.
  • To edit the Contact Form: Go to Components, Contacts. Click on Your Name.

Once you have your basic site you may want to install your own template (that controls the overall design of your site) and then, perhaps additional extensions.

There is a lot of help available for Joomla!. You can visit the Joomla! forums and the Joomla! documentation site to get started.

New Old Art

As promised, I am keeping the 2.5 people who read my website informed of new artwork. Well, I have posted some more art, it's not new, but it is now back on the site now after the rebuild.  You can view the pieces in the gallery in the Colored Pencil and Pen & Ink sections.

I'm working on getting more images from the old version of the site and I have a few ideas for some new pieces, so keep your eyes peeled.


And So It Begins...Again

After having my site hacked and having to start from scratch I have rebuilt the site.  It took a bit of time, but anything worthwhile is.  I still have several images to to get uploaded onto the site, but when I do I'll let you know.  So now I invite you to have a look around the gallery and have see all that is there for your pleasure.
