As a website administrator you might be concerned about the visual appearance of a website but will pass responsibility for making changes and improvements to a web designer. Similarly, when changes to functionality are required you will contract a web developer to do the necessary work. As a website administrator you are responsible for the day-to-day operation and maintenance of the website. Activities might include ensuring that the site is properly backed up; managing user access; possibly installing extensions. You will also have responsibility for maintaining the security of the website.

Joomla! Administrator's Manual

Note from the Doc Team: At the present time we are assembling an outline "content plan" for this document. What you see is not complete and is subject to change as we re-organise stuff and develop our thinking of what should be included and where it should be placed. The intention is that the list of topics you see below should be goal-orientated and not a "feature list" for the Administrator back-end. The items should address real and common activities that an Administrator will need to perform from time to time. Please feel free to help us by adding items you think should be included or amending items already present if you think they can be improved.
