I've downloaded and installed the LAMP stack, and the template meetGavern. I've got everything up and running, I ran the install procedure and now I can load up the meetGavern template site.

Now, I wish to get started morphing this template into my own personal website. I have no idea where to begin, this is my first time using Joomla.

I understand this is a broad question but oddly my searches are not giving me any direction, every resource I find seems to assume in-depth knowledge of Joomla.

This depends on the requirements for your "own personal website", What exactly
you need integrate into the template?

Also you have this useful guide: https://docs.joomla.org/Portal:Beginners

  • I don't think it's important what specific type of website I want to design, those details are out of scope here. I just want to know how I can get started modifying the template, even if its just removing / adding some blocks to get the hang of it. Commented May 15, 2016 at 15:44
