The Site application, also known as the Front-end, is the main part of a Joomla website. This is where the general traffic occurs: when a visitor uses your site, he will be using the Site application. You can manipulate this (add/remove content, switch templates etc.) from the Administrator application. Users with appropriate access levels will also be able to edit some aspects of the site from the Front-end.

The Site application is implemented in the JSite class, which is a subclass of the generic JApplication. The JSite object can be retrieved in all versions that support JSite using the following code. The variable $app will be a JSite object when this code is run in the Site application.

$app = JFactory::getApplication();
