How to access

You can access the Notes Category Manager by clicking on the 'User Note Categories' item in the Users menu in the back-end.

Description

This screen allows you to look at a list of your user note categories and sort them in different ways. You can also edit and create user note categories and access levels.

Column Headers

In the table containing the user note categories from your Joomla! site, you will see different columns. Here you can read what they mean and what is displayed in that column.

Click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value. The list will be sorted in order by that column and a sort icon will show next to the column name, as shown below.

Click a second time to reverse the sort to high-to-low. The sort icon will change to high-to-low, as shown below.

  • Checkbox. Check this box to select one or more items. To select all items, check the box in the column heading. After one or more boxes are checked, click a toolbar button to take an action on the selected item or items. Many toolbar actions, such as Publish and Unpublish, can work with multiple items. Others, such as Edit, only work on one item at a time. If multiple items are checked and you press Edit, the first item will be opened for editing.
  • Title. The name of the item. For a Menu Item, the Title will display in the Menu. For an Article or Category, the Title may optionally be displayed on the web page. This entry is required. You can open the item for editing by clicking on the Title.
  • Status. (Published/Unpublished/Archived/Trashed) The published status of the item.
  • Ordering. The order in which to display items. You can sort the list by order number by clicking on the Ordering label in the column heading. If the list is sorted by this column, you can change the order by clicking the arrows or by entering the sequential order and clicking the 'Save Order' icon. This is shown in the screen below.

    Note that the ordering is only defined within a single category. For this reason, it is easier to re-order the list if you use the Category filter to select one category.
  • Access. The viewing level access for this item.
  • Language. Item language.
  • 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.
  • Display #. This list box shows at the bottom of the screen, below the list of items. You can select the number of items to display on one page. If there are more items than this number, you can use the page navigation buttons (Start, Prev, Next, End, and page numbers) to navigate between pages. Note that if you have a large number of items, it may be helpful to use the Filter options, located above the column headings, to limit which items display.

Toolbar

At the top right you will see the toolbar:

The functions are:

  • New. Opens the editing screen to create a new note category.
  • Edit. Opens the editing screen for the selected note category. If more than one note category is selected (where applicable), only the first note category will be opened. The editing screen can also be opened by clicking on the Title or Name of the note category.
  • Publish. Makes the selected note categories available to visitors to your website.
  • Unpublish. Makes the selected note categories unavailable to visitors to your website.
  • Archive. Changes the status of the selected note categories to indicate that they are archived. Archived note categories can be moved back to the published or unpublished state by selecting "Archived" in the Select Status filter and changing the status of the note categories to Published or Unpublished as preferred.
  • Check In. Checks-in the selected note categories. Works with one or multiple note categories selected.
  • Trash. Changes the status of the selected note categories to indicate that they are trashed. Trashed note categories can still be recovered by selecting "Trashed" in the Select Status filter and changing the status of the note categories to Published or Unpublished as preferred. To permanently delete trashed note categories, select "Trashed" in the Select Status filter, select the note categories to be permanently deleted, then click the Empty Trash toolbar icon.
  • Rebuild. Reconstructs and refreshes the relevant table. Normally, you do not need to rebuild this table. This function is provided in case the data in the table becomes corrupted.
  • Options. Opens the Options window where settings such as default parameters or permissions can be edited.
  • Help. Opens this help screen.
