My GHOP task is to analyze 10 free Joomla! templates, find commonly used PHP statements and document it. I'll be obtaining Joomla! templates from various free websites and doing my analysis. I'm also planning to make a "Template Quick Reference" Cheatsheet which will help new and experienced designers alike for quick reference.
Code: Select all
One line summary Write a document on PHP essentials for template designers. Description Many web designers and casual website owners are not conversant with the PHP language in which Joomla! is written and since Joomla! templates usually contain PHP statements it is necessary to understand at least a little of the language in order to be able to create or customise templates. For this task the student will analyse a range of at least 10 templates from a variety of free sources and determine which aspects of the PHP language are used most frequently. The student will then write a document describing, in simple terms, how to use each aspect of PHP in the context of a Joomla! template. For example, a simple explanation of the PHP if-then-else syntax using extracts from a template for illustration. The document should comply with current Joomla! Editorial Style Guidelines and guidelines for the Template Tutorials Project. Documentation written for this task must be made available under the Joomla! Electronic Documentation License. Skills Needed Difficulty Basic. Work Product Document as described above. Extra Credit (optional) Time Limit 1 week.
