Hey guys, I need help cos I am really stuck. I am new with Joomla, but not new with CSS and HTML.

I cannot find any usual way to add solid images like head banners and image slideshow. Attached is a screenshot.
The website will be an estate agency website. On the other hand I think, if it is so complicated to add just simple images, what difficulties to live through, to get the complete website with specific search functionallity...

Thanks for your advices!
Regards from Turkey

Learning to use Joomla requires a completely different way of thinking than using just html and css. A template is somewhat similar except it uses php to place specific pieces of code in certain places on the site. If you want your images to appear on every page, then you can just code them into your template using html and css. If you want them to only appear on certain pages then you need to put them into custom html modules.

Learn Joomla Fast by Saurabh R. Bhide is a great tutorial for getting started in Joomla 1.5. This gives a very good overview of Joomla, tells how the various parts of Joomla all fit together and gives some solid steps to getting your first site up and running.

Note: This book is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 India License. This was published online at but that is no longer a valid link. I have now republished it at:

This is for 1.5 but for those new to Joomla much of the info is the same or similar. Beyond that, the free Joomla! 1-7 – Beginner’s Guide is available at: This book is fairly complete and has good solid material.

If you are just getting started, I would recommend that you go ahead and use Joomla 2.5. This is the new long-term release that will be supported through the next 18 months.

If the images that you are going to put are not dynamic, and are not going to require to be updated from a database, then you can go to your root folder, template, your template and and find adiv with an id which is logo.
From there play around with it to put your static images directly on the template.

For the slide images use an extension called djimage slider
thank you :laugh:
