I'm trying to be proactive and create a whole series of videos covering the questions people regularly ask me.

These will start off covering basic tasks, and things you might not have known about Jojo.

If you would like a short 5 minute video tutorial made for any particular aspect of Jojo, please make your request here. I can't promise to action all requests, but all other things being equal, it makes sense to start by covering the material that people want covered.

Some of the things already on my list are...
  • How to create a plugin (in progress)
  • Optimising a Jojo page for the search engines (complete)
  • Adding your own options to Jojo
  • Adding templates within body content
  • How to use BBCode
  • How to create navigation
  • Creating a basic theme
  • How to do database queries in Jojo
  • Semi-randomizing content for Google
  • Explaining some of the options
  • Quick Jojo features overview
  • Random header images (complete)
  • Adding custom sidebars (complete)
  • Image handling & resizing
  • Adding flash to your site


These are in no particular order, but if a certian video is requested, then I'll make that one sooner.

Harvey.

HMM I like the video tutorial idea a lot... I was looking at the basic seo one from the right sidebar and it froze in the beginning where you said "This heading that we are talking about" right after filling in the page heading info..

Maybe it is just me, but take a look

There was an error with the original upload, but I fixed it after someone else pointed out the issue.
Give it another go, that video covers the basics quite well.

Thanks.

Hmm maybe it's cached the broken copy. I have renamed the file, so try again please. Sorry about this, I'm still a video noob but trying to learn :)

I would like a video that covers the program flow that a request takes through the jojo system, particularly when the uri request is for a plugin. the articles plugin would probably be the best example as it incorporates hooks etc.

My next preference would be on how to produce a form admin interface for adding / editing / deleting / updating product items for a particular product.

Can only agree, the system isn't exactly intuitive at this early stage of development, it has caused me a few headaches.

Sorry folks, the source for that video is on a laptop that's being repaired - I'll have it fixed soon as I'm able to (or as soon as I can make a new video).

@user: If there is anything specific you would like explained, just ask - we are happy to help. In the meantime, we are busy developing the system further (currently the shopping cart plugins).
