  • ID. This is a unique identification number for this item assigned automatically by Joomla!. It is used to identify the item internally, and you cannot change this number. When creating a new item, this field displays 0 until you save the new entry, at which point a new ID is assigned to it.

  • Site. Shows the Languages available for the Front-end of the web site.
  • Administrator. Shows the Languages available for the Back-end of the web site. Note that the languages for the Front and Back end can be different.

Quick Tips

  • Users can use any Language from the list of installed Languages, either by having it assigned in the User Manager or by filling out a Menu Item Manager - New/Edit - User Form Layout at the Front end. This will cause the Joomla! system prompts to be generated in this Language just for this User. For example, if a User chooses Spanish as their language, then the Search Module will show with prompts in Spanish.
  • This User's choice is not affected by the Default Language set for the Front-end.
  • Changing a User's Language or the Default Language does not affect the web site's Articles and other content.
  • Important: Do not delete the default language files (for example, with FTP). This will create errors on both the Front-end and Back-end.
  • If desired, you can show the Front-end site in one Language and show the Back-end administration pages in a different Language. Also, individual articles can be configured to use a different language in the Advanced Parameter pane when editing the Article.
