Joomla! Getting Started Manual

I am writing using the idea of presenting a lot of 'hands-on' instructions and notes on 'How To - - do things'.
Version 1.5 released on Joomla! site at http://docs.joomla.org/Getting_Started_with_Joomla!_1.5

There are two versions in common use.

  • Version 1.5 is well established and widelt used. It is indicated by this icon:-Joomla 1.5
  • Version 1.6 was released early in 2011. It is indicated by this icon:- Joomla 1.6



These are links to help with ver 1.6


Skill levels: - Readership

A simple word for each group is too simplistic.

The descriptions are intended to define rough target areas of expertise.
Clearly, each group has different needs and some can be let loose on other docs on the site.

The notion of 'levels of expertise' implies that it becomes harder as you move beyond adding content. But it might be harder for someone who is used to adding to static websites to learn to think-Joomla! than for someone who has not had so much experience programming. So I am trying to avoid notions of levels of difficulty.

A lot more to this than meets the eye.

This is me in my dinghy - nothing to do with Joomla!

Things I want to keep

The difference between authors and publishers

  • Authors can create and alter articles but they cannot 'publish' them - which means that they do not display until someone with publish permissions has ticked the right box for them to be published.
  • Publishers can see the Publish tick-box when they edit or create an article - so they can publish their own articles.
  • Publishers can edit documents that they did not create.

To get it published depends on the way the site is managed. Publishing is normally done by the site adminstrator or someone with publish permissions. You are likely to need to send an email asking for it to be published.
