I just spent the better part of two hours downloading an unzip program that would do .rar and then figuring it out, unraring a joomla download, and then rezipping a Joomla template because joomla insists on a .zip file apparently, and then installing it only to find out that the file I needed was buried way down in the .zip "package". Okay start over, I know how now...
Send it up again and the damn index.php has an error in it! ARRRRRRRRGGGGGHH!
Because I'm so damn broke, I have to learn everything the HARD way. Is there a market for these short DIY guides if they're pretty reasonable? Say in the $3-5 range?
I know the first time I installed an autoresponder with CPanel and MySql and changed the permissions and.... It took me two days of trial and error to do it! But I had a great sense of pride at the end!
This is the part about the ethics...
If I did report on say..."Downloading Wordpress to Your Webserver, Installing Themes and Plug-Ins" and directed people outside the .pdf to other resources that were basically freely available if they just looked hard enough , would that be unethical or a 'rights' infringement since I would be profiting from sending people to their site?
I realize I'm rambling a bit, but after putting all that effort into that one template and then it wouldn't load, I've taken joomla completely off that site and decided to do it with WP!
Not to mention cracked a few cold ones!!
BTW, anyone want a report on "How to Jump Through the Hoops of Adding a New Template to Their Joomla Site"! I might write it when I sober up!
Seriously though, I could teach a lot of new guys how to do the mechanics while you teach them your (Insert Product Here).
You could even bundle it with your (Insert Product Here).
Oh Hell, I'm gonna wake up in the morning to 5 WSO's offering this very same thing!
I better print this post and mail it to myself by certified mail! HEHE
Seriously, If you're better at it then me, go for it! I would have given that last six pack of Silver Bullets for a 'detailed' step-by-step guide to what should be such a simple thing.
Thanks for reading, had to let off some steam and maybe carve a niche. Gotta' go watch football and drink those other 3 beers...
