Description

With the help of the Front Page Manager you can set the display order of the articles visible on the Home page of your site.

Version Changes

  • In Joomla! 1.5 the filter field was completed with Go and Reset buttons.
  • The Select State drop down filter is a new feature as well. You can narrow the list for the published/unpublished articles by selecting the appropriate option.
  • The Access column is renamed to Access Level.
  • The icons of the Reorder column are moved to the Order column.
  • The columns can be sorted ascending/descending by clicking the column header.

Column Headers

Column Headers Placeholder

Enter details of any specific Column Headers definitions that are unique to this function alone. Do not include this section if not applicable. There is no need to go into major detail in this section unless it is appropriate to do so. Use your judgement or discuss with other team members. Use definition term (dt) and style (dt15) for the name of the Column Header and definition description (dd) and style (dd15) for the explanation of the term.

Typical Usage

When you enter the administration back-end, the shortest way to open the Front Page Manager is clicking its quick icon in the Control Panel. Later you can access it from Content -> Front Page Manager menu item.

The items can be moved up/down by clicking the arrows in the list, or they can be renumbered by entering a value in the field next to the arrow. In this case the order should be saved by clicking the floppy icon.

The four drop down lists make you easier to narrow the list of your choice, or you can enter a string in the Filter field and only the matching articles will be listed.

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

Points to Watch Placeholder

Highlight known issues or easy traps that can be fallen into when using this function. Include references to known solutions rather than repeating the solutions here, unless considered essential. Even if there are none immediately apparent leave this section in the Help Screen - this message for future reference. Just replace this message with None Known at this Time. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.

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.
