Version Changes

Global Checkin was under the 'System' menu in Joomla! version 1.0.

Column Headers

  • Database table. The name of the table checked.
  • # of Items. The number of items checked out from the table.
  • Checked in. Whether the items were successfully checked in.

Typical Usage

When a user inadvertently leaves an item checked out, others are not able to edit it. Doing a global check-in releases all such items.

Quick Tips

Quick Tips Placeholder

Using the analogy of the previous section this is the sauce and condiments that go with the meat! Provide any one liners that may not normally be obvious. These may already be known to you or you may spot something within the forums or other publications. Just ensure they work and that the wording is consistent with the rest of the document and not a straight copy of the content from other sources. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Points to Watch

You should make sure nobody is actually editing any items before you perform a global check-in, as all items are checked in, including those currently being edited.

Dependencies

Dependencies Placeholder

Describe other screens that rely on the presence of this function or that this function relies upon, in order to work correctly for example: a Category depends upon the presence of a Section (up) and it must be in place before a Categorised Article (down) can be created. If there are no Dependencies either up or down for the particular screen just state None but do include the section. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices. It will probably be sufficient to just list these and provide links to the Help Screens relating to the dependency.
