Explanation of the table

In the table with all users from your Joomla! site displayed, you will see different columns. Here you can read what they mean and what is displayed in that column.

Checkbox: You can select this square to select an article. You will need to do this for several actions, for example editing and deleting.

Name: The (full) name of the user. When you click on this name, you'll go to the edit page of this user. You can find the help screen of this part of the User Manager here: [1].

Username: The username of the user is displayed in this column. When a user wants to log in, he has to fill this username into the username field.

Logged in: In this column you can see whether the user is logged in or not. A green 'v' sign is showed when the person is logged in. The column is left blanco when the user is logged out.

Enabled: In this column you can see wheter the user is enabled or disabled. A green 'v' sign is showed when the user is enabled, a red cross sign when the user is disabled. A disabled user did not activate their account by clicking on the link in the e-mail sended after registration. A disabled user could also be a user who was blocked by an Administrator or a Super Administrator. Click on the icon to toggle between enabled and disabled.

Group: The group of the user is displayed here. This can be: Registered, Author, Editor, Publisher, Manager, Administrator or Super Administrator.

E-Mail: The e-mail address from the user is displayed here. When you click on it, your Mail Program will open and you will be able to send the user an e-mail.

Last visit: Here you can see the date on which the user last logged in.

ID: Here you can see the ID number of a user. You can not change this number. The ID of the Super Administrator created during installation has the ID number 62.

You can sort the rows of the table in different ways. You can also decide to only show the users for a particular group or only users who are logged in right now.

Version Changes

The only differences between the Joomla! 1.0.x User Manager and the Joomla! 1.5 User Manager are about the sorting of the users. In the Joomla! 1.0.x versions you could not click on the column headers to sort the users by the specific column, ascending or descending.

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

Typical Usage Placeholder

This is the most important new section in these Help Screens. This is the meat on the bones of the Help Screen. This should represent the typical basic usage of the screens' functionality in normal use. Write it as a guide not just as a sequence of instructions - except when this is required. Include links to other screens that are needed to complete the function effectively. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

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.

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.
