Sample text

Although the widgets demonstrated in this chapter are only a very small sampling of the large number available on the Internet, you can download most widgets that are available and activate them using the same steps as you will follow here. One of the most widely helpful widgets is the addition of a calendar to a web site. A calendar is useful if your Joomla site represents an organization, a user group, or a special interest group (such as gardening, chess, bicycling, and so forth). If you have a personal landing page, you can share personal events with your visitors.

To create a good dynamic template, you will need to create the HTML so that it is flexible enough to accommodate all of these different page types. For example, the goal of the home page is to entice the visitor into the site, which may be best served by having a single column layout with impressive graphics or animation. In contrast, the goal of an article page is to convey information, so it may favor a standard three-column layout. The template should adjust itself to the needs of the different page display types.

Chapter 2 ■ Customizing Joomla with Widgets Surveys can be one of the most useful feedback tools for improving a web site if they are well constructed and short. By using the Survey Monkey widget, you can add surveys to your Joomla site easily and obtain a variety of insights into how your user base looks at your site. Adding a Related Content Module to Your Site When a visitor comes to your site from a search engine, they will likely land on a specific page more often than the home page. That means they’ve already shown interest in the particular subject of document and it is likely they might also want to read other documents on your site that have related content.
