The Plugin Manager allows you to enable and disable Joomla! plugins and to edit a plugin's details and options. It is also useful for quickly enabling/disabling multiple plugins at once.

How to Access

Select Extensions  Plugins from the drop-down menu of the Joomla! Administrator Panel.



Column Headers

  • Ordering. Up-Down ArrowsHelp30-Ordering-colheader-icon.png User specified ordering, default is order of Plugin creation. When active, drag and drop ordering by 'click and hold' on the bars icon Help30-Ordering-colheader-grab-bar-icon.png then 'release' in desired position.
  • Checkbox. Check this box to select one or more Plugin's. To select all Plugin's, 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 Plugin or Plugin's. Many toolbar actions, such as 'Enable', can work with multiple Plugin's. Others, such as 'Edit', only work on one Plugin at a time. If multiple Plugin's are checked and you press 'Edit', the first Plugin will be opened for editing.
  • Status. A green tick or a red X showing whether the use of the component is enabled/disabled. Click the icon to toggle the Plugin between enabled and disabled.
  • Plugin Name. The name of the plugin.
  • Type. The Type of the plugin. Some possible types are: authentication, content, editors, editors-xtd, search, system, and user. These are also the names of the website sub-directories where the plugin files are located. For example, plugins with a type of 'authentication' are located in the website directory 'plugins/authentication'.
  • Element. The plugin directory name which contains the plugin's files. This directory will be located in the directory which corresponds to its type. For example, the 'Authentication - Joomla' plugin is of type 'Authentication' and element 'joomla'. So the website directory it is located in is 'plugins/authentication/joomla'
  • Access. The viewing Access Level for this Plugin. You can change an Plugin's Access Level by clicking on its name to open it up for editing.
  • ID. This is a unique identification number for this Plugin assigned automatically by Joomla. It is used to identify the Plugin internally, and you cannot change this number.

List Filters

The list of plugins which appears on this screen may be very large. You can use one of the available filters or any combination of them to limit the number of plugin(s) displayed to just the plugin(s) which match your filter parameters.

Filter by Partial Name

You can filter the list of plugin's by typing in all of part of its name. In the upper left corner just above the column headings is a Filter field and two buttons, as shown below:


If you have a large number of plugin's on the list, you can use this filter to find the desired plugin's quickly. Enter either all or part of the name and press 'Search' to display the matching plugin's. You can enter in whole words or part of a word. For example, 'ooml' will match all titles with the word 'Joomla' in them.

Filter by Status, Type, Element and Access

In the upper left area, are drop-down list boxes as shown below:
