For a web developer, you should put some basic knowledge about HTML in your pocket so that your life will be much easier when building a Joomla website.

I strongly believe that during the process of building your Joomla website, you will need to add some custom HTML modules on your site, adjust the code of articles or modify your template, etc. At that time, you will realize how important basic HTML skills are.

As a web developer and provider, JUX team has received a lot of questions about custom products every single day and we also know a lot of customers do not know anything about HTML. It’s quite pity when you are building a Joomla site without any knowledge about HTML. So my advice is get back to the basic first before you continue with delicacy. You can start your lessons with W3 School – one of the most popular resource for learning the basics of HTML.
