    Total Noobie - Kind of embarassing

    Okay- so being a noobie here - I've turned off the 'School Term' box on my front page and for the life of me cannot work out how to get it back.

    I should read docs but I tend not to - instead preferring to get my hands dirty. I'm trying to get my head around how all the blocks fit together - modules/components/ etc

    Time to find the proper Joomla docs I think - although it is prolly easy and I'm just trying go avoid reading.

    Anyone fancy giving me a quick tutorial on the phone for 10 mins?

    If you're not prepared to find and read the docs when you get stuck, I don't see how you expect to conquer Joomla.

    I imagine you want to enable the module from the Modules section.

    Ok, do you have the Term Dates module enabled in the Module Manager and set to Published in the Article Manager.

    I think that Joomla is something you really need to get your head around before setting off and diving in. One really good thing I did was to get the tutorial from the Joomla website that helps you create a simple site using the Joomla base package and helps you to get the links between catagories, sections, articles, modules etc.

    If you need a copy I can mail one over.

    I totally agree with you which is what I said in my post. When I get two minutes - but sometime someone explaining is better.

    Remember there are different types of learner - I am a visual learner. What type are you? Ilearn best when shown.

    One of the main aspects of teaching now is recognising different types of learner.

    But I do take your point,
