Joomla.org Official Forum
Forums are considered as the best way to discuss an issue you're experiencing, or idea about a specific topic. Before start spending your hard-earned money on a so-called premium support service, visit the Joomla! Forum to seek out help and advices.
Joomla community is the backbone of this CMS and users on the forum are always eager to help you out and solve your question. There, you not only ask questions but also check other threads on similar issues.
Till now, the Joomla! Forum has more than 750,000 registered users and has 770,000+ topics. From these stats, you can assume the activeness of the forum.
Joomla Facebook Group
Joomla has a Facebook Group too. An alternative support channel where you can post the issues you're facing and get them solved by the community members. The Joomla Facebook Group is the most active group I have seen in among other Joomla related groups as it has more than 25,000 active members and your question is most likely to be answered in just a few minutes!
Like in every Facebook Group, there are guidelines to keep the group spam-free and productive. So, just make sure, you are not spamming with your services or products, otherwise, you will get banned immediately without any prior intimation.
Joomla Official Documentation
The Joomla documentation site is an online collaborative community manual where you can learn how to install Joomla, report a bug, help with the translations, secure your website and even learn how to develop a Joomla extension. If you are a beginner and want to do a masters in Joomla, this is your place.
Right now, Joomla docs consist of 8K+ pages which are translated into more than 30 languages. It’s very likely you can find the tutorial you’re looking for in your native language.
Joomla Video Training
Joomla is not only offering you the community support, but it is also providing you Joomla training videos for free. In the Joomla! Video Training site, you can learn from everything from the basics to more advanced topics such as creating a multilingual web site and keeping your site up to date and secure.
Right now, they have 5 classes which are covering all the topics from basic to advanced level. And each class has around 10+ videos. So if you are looking for video content to learn about a specific feature, this is your place.
Local Joomla Meetups
