Joomla! Official Documentation

Reader profiles

Find the profile that most accurately describes your role and you will find the documentation that you need more quickly. These are the most frequent profiles...

None of the above? Then look for more user profiles.

Quick links
Documentation all together.jpg
Getting started

If you have only recently starting working with Joomla you will probably have experienced the pain of learning a new system. New terminology, new ways of doing things, perhaps even the web itself may be new to you. Then let these guides relieve some of that pain.

Important

You don't need to register here if you just want to read the documentation.

You should only register if you want to make changes to the information contained here. Also note that registration on this wiki is entirely separate from registration on our other sites, such as the forum.

Coming soon

With Joomla 2.5 safely released the focus of development is shifting to 3.0, currently scheduled for release in September 2012. This will be the first of a new series (3.0/3.1/3.5) and maintaining backwards compatibility with 2.5 will not be required.

Joomla Platform

The Joomla Platform is available. Development will be time-based with roughly a three-month release cycle.

Quick links for Administrators
Joomla 2.5 Joomla! 2.5

Joomla! 2.5 is the current LTS version. The previous LTS version, Joomla 1.5, is still widely used and will be supported with security fixes only until September 2012.

For more information see the Joomla 2.5 category page.

Quick links for Developers
Joomla 3.3 Joomla! 3.3

Joomla 3.3 is the latest STS version after Joomla 2.5. Support for Joomla 3.3 is still active.

For more information see the Joomla 3.3 category page.

Helping with the documentation effort
Documentation Projects

You don't need to join the Documentation Working Group to help us improve the documentation. Just register on this wiki and get started. Feel free to fix any errors you find; take a look in the Cookie jar; or consider helping out in one of our mini-projects...

Joomla! Beginners Tutorial Project
The aim of the Beginners Tutorial Project is to construct useful, easy to follow Tutorials aimed at Joomla! Beginners. Topics will include helpful 'how to's' for the benefit of those new to Joomla!
Joomla! Developer Tutorials Project
This project is aimed at creating consistent, easy-to-follow Tutorials for Joomla! Extension Developers, written by Joomla! Developers.
Joomla! Help Screens Project
This project focuses on the administrator Joomla! 2.5 Help screens and Joomla! 3.3 Help screens. Unless a Joomla! Installation is modified, all core component Help screens are being served from this wiki. The summary status of each Joomla! Help screen can be found in the previous links.
