    How can I create a Web learning site with joomla?

    hi

    I want to establish a web learning site (HTML , JS , ...) like:
    http://davidwalsh.name/mootools-12-tooltips-customize

    i want to put my contents something like this:



    I tried the filtering option but it doesn't help

    disabling the TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor is so bad because i want to put some formatting in my content!

    is there any way to have both of them?
    I meant using a WYSIWYG Editor for text formatting and putting some "tags and codes" (with highlight) in my content!

    is it possible?

    can you help me?

    I don't know about Joomla but that site is using Wordpress so why not just use that?

    Well that area your circled on the image is just made of of <div>'s <spans>, CSs for styling, and a bit of Javascript, so yes it should be possible in Joomla I would have thought.

    thanks

    I knew it

    i found some extensions for highlighting code in joomla but TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor Omit them!

    my problem is I want to have both of them! (showing HTML content and text formatting)

    and about:
    I don't know about Joomla but that site is using Wordpress so why not just use that?
    I don't have enough knowledge about Wordpress : Templates,Widgets , ...??!!
    but I'm familiar with joomla but i have a problem in this subject : "creating a web learning site with joomla" because of editors!


    I want to be sure is it possible to start that site with joomla or not?

    The object you circled looks like you'd want to use SyntaxHighlighter, which I can link to cause I'm still new (just google it)

    And to include it in your site all you need is to include it in the header stuff from the Joomla theme.

    As you can see, all you need to do is use a <pre> element with some classes. Any editor that lets you directly enter your own markup should permit this -- in TinyMCE this is the 'Edit HTML Source' button with 'HTML' written on it.

    Another option is to use the plain text editor, but use something like the Textile or Markdown mambot to make the formatting easier, and leave out the WYSIWYG editor. In Markdown you just construct your text like this:

    ## Hello there

    This is a *sweet* piece of **text!**
    When it's viewed on the frontend, Markdown converts it to:

    Code:
    <h2>Hello there</h2>
    
    <p>This is a <em>sweet</em> piece of <strong>text!</strong>
    Stupendously easy!

    Hey, it's easy to install joomla,

    just go to your domain cpanel and click on fantastico, select joomla and it will be installed on your site directory or sub domain just in 5 minutes.
    just try and reply me if any problem.
