HOW TO BE A JOOMLA DEVELOPER?
To be a Joomla website developer, you need to know the types of Joomla developers. There are three kinds of Joomla developers, and each kind has different functions. You can choose to be a particular kind of developer but may also perform the tasks of all three types at once.
Site Builder: A site builder has proficient knowledge of Joomla extensions and templates and uses this knowledge to build websites. Sometimes, a site builder is also skilled in graphic production and is capable of making minor design changes to the website. Site Builders are highly suitable for small businesses and business enterprises because of their limited knowledge and expertise.
Template Skinner: Such a developer knows HTML and CSS, along with knowing extensions and templates. A template Skinner can "skin" a template out somebody else's design. He or she can turn this design into a new and useable design. A Template Skinner is best suited for graphic designers. He or she can help a graphic designer put their design work into a Joomla website.
Web Designer: Such a developer has the same skills that a Template Skinner has. Additionally, he or she can create custom designs for a website and can make changes to existing designs as well.
Extension Developer: An Extension Developer is a highly skilled developer with the best technical skills and qualifications. He or she can create custom extensions for Joomla websites. He or she can also solve function related problems and ensure that the site is running smoothly and efficiently.

HOW TO DEVELOP A WEBSITE WITH JOOMLA?
Building a Joomla website for the first time may seem daunting. But these step-by-step procedures will guide you in making a complete website.
STEP 1: The first step is to register for a domain name as well as a web hosting service. You can easily find them on various online platforms. If you already have your domain name and web hosting, you can skip this step.
STEP 2: Install Joomla. You can install Joomla using Bluehost quick install services or manually install it. After you have installed it successfully set it up by opening the application.
STEP 3: Familiarise yourself with the basics. You must know some of the shortcuts and the menu items. On the left is your shortcut to frequently used admin area parts like changing menu structure, creating new articles, and so on. On the right, you will find all the essential information about your site. On the top is the taskbar where you will find the "menus" option.
Here's what you'll find in the taskbar:
System: System will give you access to the control panel, cache clearing option, site setting, system information viewing option, and so on.
User: Here, you can manage all your users, user groups, their levels of access, user logs, privacy queries, and so on. You can also send mass emails to all your site members.
Menus: Here, you will find all you need to create and manage menus.
Content: Content will give you options to add articles, taxonomies, and so on. You can also choose your featured content for the site and manage all your site's media files.
Components: With Components, you can create and manage banners for your website, add news feed, and so on. You can also access post-installation messages and manage all your tags.
Extensions: With Extensions, you can install extensions. You can also update, configure and troubleshoot all your extensions. You can also see your database and update your site.
Help: Here, you can find essential help topics to help you.
STEP 4: Select and install a Joomla template. You can choose a template from the Templates option. You do not need to code for installing templates. However, Joomla does not have a templates directory. So you need to purchase them from places like Joomlart, Joomdev or SiteGround. You can try out a trial version of a template if you do not want to buy it. Once you download a template, you will receive it as a zip file. Upload this under Extensions and Install it.
STEP 5: Customise the design of your website. Most templates come with options to customise them. You can change the colour, font style, font size, and so on to make your website more personal.
STEP 6: Use modules. Modules are small units of content that help you create different designs. They appear in many places on a website page. If you are building a page from scratch, you should enable the preview mode. It will tell you where you can add modules on your page. To enable this, click on Systems>Global Configuration>Templates. Enable Preview Module Positions, save and close. Now go back to your template list and click the Preview button. You will be able to see all the available module positions. Turn off the preview option when you have finished assigning modules.
STEP 7: Assign the modules. To assign modules, go to Extension>Modules. Here you will be able to see all active modules on your website, their positions, pages, languages and users to which they are assigned. To add some text on your site check where the module will go. Then go to the modules menu and create a new one. Choose the type as Custom to create your custom content block. Once you are done, save it and check if the Status is set to Published. Now go to Menu Assignment and choose the pages where you want to show your module. With this method, you can also insert banners, images, menus, and so on into your pages.
STEP 8: Create new pages or "Articles" and assign them to the navigation menu. In Joomla, you create pages in one place and make them appear in another place because they won't show up on your site automatically. To create them, go to Content>Articles>Add New Article. Once you have created your article check and see if the status is set to Publish. Then save your article.
Now that you have created a new page, your visitors must be able to view it. To enable this option, you must assign your page to the navigation menu. Go to Menus>Main Menu>Add New Menu Item>Article>Single Article. Select your content and add a Menu Title. Save it and close it. You can also change the order of your menu items.
STEP 9: Assign a blog section. Go to Content>Categories>Add New Category. Input the name "Blog" and save it. Once again, assign the category to the menu section by following the previous procedures. Choose a category for your blog.
STEP 10: Install extensions to your website. Extensions will help you add more features to your site and make it more functional. You can find extensions in the official Joomla Extension Directory. Go to Extension>Install. You can install from the web. This option you provide you access to everything that you can find in the Joomla Directory. Select the extension you want and click on the Install button twice. Your extension will load automatically. Now go to Extensions>Manage to active the parts of the extension that are not already activated. You can also deactivate/uninstall the extensions you do not need. Your website is now ready
