As I said, I'm a total newbie to Joomla...Went to Joomla.org downloaded v1.5.17 (newest) and xampp...set it all up using the quick start guide from Joomla.org, running as a local host, in the guide they have you set up a fake site about landscaping, it was fun for learning...but now I'd like to make my own sites/sites...Here comes the dumb Q...how do I get rid of that site and create mine?...I know it sounds dumb, but for someone coming over from dreamweaver, where you hit a create new site button..joomla is a little tougher! please help if you can stop laughing long enough.. :hysterical:

Remember this: "It is not bad knowing what you don't know, but it's bad not knowing what you know. Nobody was born smart. There is no stupid question, there are only stupid answers."
Sumo sumare, don't be affraid to ask.

Now, back to the topic.

Delete all sections and categories and create new.

Install new modules and plugins.

Get some free or buy the template.

Joomla is a completely different application than Dreamweaver, with a completely different purpose. Fortunately Joomla is well documented. I would suggest starting with the beginner's guide.
