-- Written by Remo Laubacher , this book helps readers familiarize themselves with all of Concrete5's features.
Concrete5 is an open source content management system (CMS) for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets. It enables users to edit site content directly from the page. This makes the platform easy to use with a minimum of technical skills. Concrete5 also allows users to edit images through an embedded editor on the page.
Concrete5 Beginner's Guide guides reader’s right from the installation stage to the deployment process, thereby making it the only reference that they will need to create their new Concrete5 site. Developers will also learn how to install add-ons and themes to make their website aesthetically pleasing.
Through this book readers will learn how to use Concrete5 blocks to add pictures, extend the dashboard to add functionality to blocks as well as navigate around the toolbar and dashboard in order to edit their website.
Those who want to build their first website with Concrete5 and have little experience in PHP, MySQL, or HTML will find this book to be an interesting and beneficial read.
