I am new to Joomla! and I am trying to wrap my head around some of the basic concepts of creating Joomla! template from scratch. I looked around online, but I haven't found anything about this question yet. Maybe I am not looking in the right place.
I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of inside pages in a Joomla! template when it comes to file structure. I am creating a news website and there will be three different kinds of inside pages, category home, article page and a search results page. All of which need to have different module and banner spaces.
If I were to not use Joomla! and code a site from PHP I would use variables in the URL for an article.php to select an article out of a mysql database using the variables in the URL.
I don't really understand if that is the method that is used with Joomla! I was thinking to maybe create a article.php page that queries the Joomla! content database and selects all the information from the database with the URL variables and the has modules built in the sidebar.
Like I said, I am new to this.
