Working on Your Site

Here are some basic tips for working on your site.

  • Joomla! has a 'front end' that you are looking at now and an 'administrator' or 'back end' which is where you do the more advanced work of creating your site such as setting up the menus and deciding what modules to show. You need to login to the administrator separately using the same user name and password that you used to login to this part of the site.
  • One of the first things you will probably want to do is change the site title and tag line and to add a logo. To do this select the Template Settings link in the menu which is visible if you log in. To change your site description, browser title, default email and other items, select Site Settings. More advanced configuration options are available in the administrator.
  • To totally change the look of your site you will probably want to install a new template. Go to System, select Install - Extensions from the list and the extension installer will open. There are many free and commercial templates available for Joomla.
  • As you have already seen, you can control who can see different parts of you site. When you work with modules and articles, setting the Access level to Registered will mean that only logged in users can see them.
  • When you create a new article or other kind of content you also can save it as Published or Unpublished. If it is Unpublished site visitors will not be able to see it but you will.
  • You can learn much more about working with Joomla from the Joomla documentation site and get help from other users at the Joomla forums. In the administrator there are help buttons on every page that provide detailed information about the functions on that page.

New feature: Workflows

Workflows manage the stages your articles must go through until they are published.
We have activated a workflow for the sample data blog.
In the administration process your articles through the different stages.
