If you hang out in the IRC channel for Joomla, you'll often see Dr. Digital hanging out there. He's a good guy to get help with Joomla—just make sure your site is updated before you do! Anyways, I was reading his website and he has an article about using HTML and Javascript with modules.

Sections and Categories are perhaps the most difficult concept to learn in Joomla. Other people have done a much better job than I ever could at explaining what they do, so if you're not sure what they do, read up.

Once you get the concept down and you've worked out your sections and categories, it's not unusual for a large site to have five to ten different sections with the same number of categories.

  1. Click Section Manager
  2. Click New
  3. Type a Title
  4. Click Save
  5. Repeat for each Section
  6. Click Category Manager
  7. Click New
  8. Type a Title
  9. Select a Section
  10. Click Save
  11. Repeat for each Category

Often this can be extremely time consuming. Luckily, there's help.
