Overview

Component packaged with Joomla! 1.6 Core.

How to access

Select Site → Site Maintenance → Global Check-in from the drop-down menu of the Joomla! Administrator Panel.

Description

Selecting this menu option will cause Joomla! to perform a global check-in of all currently pending or locked items. It then shows the results of the Global Check-in. This is useful, for example, if an Article is locked by a User who opened it for editing and never finished the editing session. In this case, other Users are not able to edit this Article. Performing a Global Check-in releases all such items.

  • 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. A green check-mark indicates that the table was checked in successfully. A red X indicates that the table was not checked in correctly. An empty column indicates that there were no items to check in.

Quick Tips

  • Make sure no one is busy editing any items before you perform a global check-in. When a Global Check-in is done, all items are checked in, including those currently being edited.
