Naming conventions

From Joomla! Documentation

I changed the previous utterly long title to something less dramatic. The old title will still be available and redirect to this page. --CirTap 19:21, 28 January 2008 (EST)

Needs correction

Component files for the site are located in site/ and administrative files are located in admin/. After the component has been uploaded and installed through the Extension Manager, the site files will reside on the server at site/components/com_{componentname}/ and the administrative files will be at administrator/components/com_{componentname}/.

This one is incorrect. You should write wwwroot/components/com_{componentname}/ and wwwroot/administrator/components/com_{componentname}/ or {Joomla! base directory}/ instead of wwwroot/

Reserwed words

I added a little section with information on reserwed words. It must be expanded with full list of words, but I don't know them. :-( That information is extracted directly from sources (see reference).

Also does anybody knows what's wrong with wiki references and how to use them (see "Reserwed Words")? Stilgar 21:57, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

View class name

As I understand, it contains not a {ComponentName}, but {ControllerName}. I didn't change it because I don't know enough about how that works. Stilgar 22:10, 2 March 2010 (UTC)


I don't know whether this is appropriate for a talk page but just wanted to say thanks for the author(s) for writing this as it was really helpful.
