Online Administration

Managing Joomla is done through a web browser meaning you can manage your site from anywhere in the world.

All of the website content is stored centrally in a database. You can create, edit, publish, unpublish, archive or delete articles using the user friendly Joomla interface. Joomla’s powerful content editor has similar editing capabilities to Microsoft Word, i.e. what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG). The Joomla system gives you total control over your articles.

  • Upload Images, Documents and Videos to your articles.
  • Organise your articles into Sections and Categories.
  • Define Publishing and Unpublishing dates.

As all of the content is stored in a database users can search through all pages on the website to quickly find what they need.

  • Users can also rate articles
  • E-mail articles to a friend
  • Subscribe to new content using their favourite RSS Reader

Once you've created your articles, there are a number of pre-installed modules to show the most popular articles, latest new items, newsflashes, related articles, and more.

Menu Management

The Menu Manager allows you to create as many menus and menu items as you need. You can structure your menu hierarchy (and nested menu items) completely independent of your content structure and create just about any navigation system you can think of. Also automatic breadcrumbs are generated to help users navigate your site.

User Management

Joomla has a registration system that allows users to create accounts and configure personal options. There are nine user groups with various types of permissions on what users are allowed to access, edit, publish and administrate.

Template Management

Templates in Joomla are a powerful way to make your site look exactly the way you want. You can use a single template for the entire site or a separate template for each site section. The outstanding benefit of having the template management system is down the road when you want to freshen up the look of your website; you can simply install a new template without having to purchase a completely new system.

Components & Extensions Management

The true power of Joomla is in its extensibility i.e. it is very easy to integrate additional functionality into the system. Joomla’s vast community of developers have created thousands of commercial and open-source extensions which make it easy to extend the functionality of your website. Example Extensions and Components: Forums, photo galleries, contact forms, online shops, business directories, community builders.

Other Features

Language Manager There is international support for many world languages. If you need your Web site in one language and the administrator panel in another, multiple languages are possible.

Integrated Help System Joomla has a built-in help section to assist users with finding what they need. A glossary explains the terms in plain English, a version checker makes sure you're using the latest version, a system information tool helps you troubleshoot, and, if all else fails, links to a wealth of online resources for additional help and support.

System Features Speedy page loads are possible with page caching, granular-level module caching, and page compression. Administrators can quickly and efficiently communicate with users one-on-one through private messaging or all site users via the mass mailing system. Joomla is a search engine friendly content management system with build in functionality create search engine friendly URL’s and access to set Metadata for individual article pages.
