hey, try this lesson

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/chords/barre_chords.html

if you have any questions after that, I'd love to help you out!

edit: okay well I guess this bit isn't explicitly stated in that lesson (that I saw), so:

for each chord, bar the respective fret with your index finger to play it (these are all based on the E string - the one closest to your face lol):
F is at the first fret
G is at the third
A is at the fifth
B is the 7th
C is the 8th
D is the 10th
and E is the 12th

The chords with sharps and flats are found between the ones i listed. I can list those too, if you need it? I don't know if i'm explaining this very well or not.

It'd be helpful also if you learned some of the notes on the fretboard. That way, you can know that you're playing an A or a B bar chord, not just the chord that starts on 5th fret, or 7th fret.

It's very helpful for when you are playing with other people and they ask you to play different chords. Plus it's much easier to play with other people if you know some music theory.

Edit: check out chordfind.com or other similar websites. You can hover over the frets and it will show what note that particular fret is.

One more thing; try to learn all the positions of chords so you don't sound too repetitive. This way you'll be able to switch around positions and it will keep you and others interested in your playing.

I'm not a guitar player, but I think the CAGED theory thing might be what you're looking for. Different barre chord shapes is important.
