29000 Sunsets

Yes, I write a lot! This is just one of the many spots I write. I have written several novels, they can be purchased or viewed here!

No, this is not a travel sales site, but perhaps it should be. Nor is it a site that professes that one religion is more credible than another (but maybe it should be there too). Instead this is a site that explores the personal rantings of a man fascinated by passion and how it can play a part in our everyday life.

It would be awesome if we could talk, and learn and you could start to see into my very cluttered and always active mind, but since we can’t, I invite you to take a moment and read some of the thoughts that roll through my mind.

Not interested? That’s OK! Not impressed? That’s OK too, but please, spend your time wisely as you may only have 29,000 sunsets, it is up to you to enjoy them.

 Purpose of the site:

  • To pass on a little sunshine before the sun sets
  • To pass on a smile when the frown is winning
  • To help people see the mirror inside themselves  that can be hard to see (Even for me)
  • To keep me writing each and every day. 

Lastly it is a goal for us all. If we know we should get at least 29,000 sunsets there is a finite goal in front of us, and as we pass beyond, perhaps we can realize that each day is a gift to us, and treat it even more specially.

Got a suggestion, feel free to send it in to nomatterwhat@29000sunsets.com

Working on Your Site

Here are some basic tips for working on your site.

  • Joomla! has a “front end” that you are looking at now and an “administrator” or “back end” which is where you do the more advanced work of creating your site such as setting up the menus and deciding what modules to show. You need to login to the administrator separately using the same user name and password that you used to login to this part of the site.
  • One of the first things you will probably want to do is change the site title and tag line and to add a logo. To do this click on the Template Settings link in the top menu. To change your site description, browser title, default email and other items, click Site Settings. More advanced configuration options are available in the administrator.
  • To totally change the look of your site you will probably want to install a new template. In the Extensions menu click on Extensions Manager and then go to the Install tab. There are many free and commercial templates available for Joomla.
  • As you have already seen, you can control who can see different parts of you site. When you work with modules, articles or weblinks setting the Access level to Registered will mean that only logged in users can see them
  • When you create a new article or other kind of content you also can save it as Published or Unpublished. If it is Unpublished site visitors will not be able to see it but you will.
  • You can learn much more about working with Joomla from the Joomla documentation site and get help from other users at the Joomla forums. In the administrator there are help buttons on every page that provide detailed information about the functions on that page.
