Components Finder Manage Content Maps Joomla 2.5

This screen shows the content maps currently in the Smart Search index. Content maps allow you to cross-reference your indexed content (articles, etc) to related meta information such as the category in which it resides. Each content item that is indexed by Smart Search is added to one or more content maps that can be used as filters when searching the index.

Content maps are split into two parts:

  • Branches: These are super-containers for a particular type of information. For example, a branch could be "Section", "Category", "Event" or "Author".
  • Nodes: Nodes are the actual values for the meta information in a particular branch. The nodes are, for example, the names of the categories or authors.

These branches and nodes are what make up the advanced search panel available on the front-end. For each branch there can be a drop-down select list and the nodes are added as values to the respective list. More advanced site builders can override the default layouts and use multi-select lists or checkboxes instead.

It's important to note that branches and nodes from different content types are merged into the one list. A Joomla article in a category called "News" and a news feed or contact in a category named the same are mapped to the same node in the same branch. This is a little like tagging different types of content with the same label. The effect is that your site visitor does not have to know how your content is classified in order to set the correct filters to find it.

The content maps screen shows all the branches within the Smart Search index together with a number indicating the number of nodes within that branch. Clicking on a branch title allows you to see the nodes within that branch together with the number of content items that belong to that node. A content item can belong to multiple nodes within a branch as well as to multiple branches.

      • Find "Smart Search" in the list of plug-ins shown.
      • If there is a green tick in the Enabled column for Smart Search then the Smart Search plug-in has been enabled. If there is red circle then the Smart Search plug-in is currently disabled.
    • To enable the Smart Search plug-in:
      • Click on the red circle. This should change to a green tick indicating that the Smart Search plug-in is now enabled.
  • Click on the Index toolbar icon. This will open a window to show the progress of the indexing operation. The indexing operation may take some time depending on the number of content items on your site and the number of search words and phrases contained in each content item. A progress bar will indicate how much of the indexing process has been completed so far. Do not close this window until indexing has been completed. On sites with a large amount of content this may take a long time (tens of minutes).

You do not need to set any of these options. Your Joomla site will work with the default settings.

Article options are divided into nine groups as follows. Each controls the appearance of the listed type of layout.

  • Articles: Articles in Single Article or blog layouts.

Categories are the second level of organization underneath Sections. Every Section contains one or more Categories. The special Section 'Uncategorized' has a special Category also called 'Uncategorized'. These are built into Joomla!.

Screen.content.categories.edit.15 Joomla 1.5

This is where you can add a new Category to a Section or edit an existing Category. Categories are used to organize the Articles within a Section. Sections and Categories allow you to display related Articles together on a page and to filter Articles in the Article Manager. All Articles are assigned either to a Category that you create or to the special Category called 'Uncategorized'.

Screen.content.edit.15 Joomla 1.5

This is the back-end screen where you can add and edit Articles. The same screen is used for adding a new Article and editing an existing Article. You can also select the Section and Category for an Article and indicate whether or not it is Published and if it is selected to appear on the Front Page.

The Article's content is edited using the default editor selected in the User Manager - New/Edit. The Joomla! default editor is called TinyMCE.

A number of Parameters can be set for the Article. Metadata can also be entered.

Screen.frontpage.15 Joomla 1.5

The Front Page Manager is the place where you control which Articles are displayed on the Front Page and in what order they are displayed. The Front Page is often the Home page of a web site, but it can be any page in the site. The Front Page is created using a Menu Item with the Front Page layout.

Screen.sections.15 Joomla 1.5

Articles in Joomla! are organized into Sections and Categories. Sections are the top-level of organization and Categories go under Sections. The Section Manager is the place where you can edit existing Sections and create new ones. For example, a web site might have the following organization:

  • People
    • Volunteers, Staff, Board Members
  • Projects
    • Major Projects, Small Projects
  • Events
    • Local Events, National Events

In this example, 'People', 'Projects', and 'Events' would be the Sections. The sub-topics under each Section (for example, 'Volunteers', 'Staff', and 'Board Members') would be the Categories for each Section. When an Article is added, it would be assigned a Section (for example 'People') and a Category (for example, 'Board Members').

You can have an many or as few Sections and Categories as you need. Joomla! has a built-in Section and Category called 'Uncategorized'. This allows you to create Articles without creating or assigning any Section or Category. You just assign the Article to the 'Uncategorized' Section.

Sections are used for two reasons. The first reason is for organizing Articles on your web pages. The Section Blog Layout and Section Layout allow you to display multiple Articles on a page for a given Section. So, in the example above, you could have a page for 'People' that shows Articles related to this Section. A second reason to use Sections is to help manage your Articles in the back-end Article Manager. If you have a large number of Articles, you can filter by Section so you only see the Articles from one Section.

Screen.sections.edit.15 Joomla 1.5

There is where you can add a new Section or edit an existing Section. Sections in Joomla! are used to organize Articles. Sections are the top-level of organization, and each Section contains one or more Categories. Sections and Categories allow you to organize your Articles and display related Articles together on a page. All Articles are assigned either to a Section you create or to the special Section called 'Uncategorized'.

Extension Management Help Screens‎

Help Screen Version Description
Extensions Extension Manager Database Joomla 2.5

This screen checks that your database table structure is up to date with your Joomla programs and lets you try to fix any problems that are found.

In a normal Joomla version update, changes to the database table structure (also called "schema") are done automatically to keep the database version synchronized with the Joomla version. If an update is done manually, or if some part of an automatic update fails, the database schema might not be updated to match the version of the Joomla program files. In this case you will see a list of database problems on the screen. You can normally fix any problems by clicking on the Fix button.

Extensions Extension Manager Database Joomla 3.0
Extensions Extension Manager Discover Joomla 2.5

This screen allows you to discover extensions that have not gone through the normal installation process. This provides a method to install large extensions which are not possible to install using the normal process. For example, some extensions are too large in file size to upload using the web interface due to limitations of the web hosting environment. Using this feature you can upload extension files directly to your web server using some other means such as FTP or SFTP and place those extension files into the appropriate directory. You can then use the discover feature to find the newly uploaded extension and activate it in your Joomla! installation. Using the discover operation you can also discover and install multiple extensions at the same time.

Extensions Extension Manager Discover Joomla 3.0

</translate> <translate>

This screen allows you to discover extensions that have not gone through the normal installation process. This provides a method to install large extensions which are not possible to install using the normal process.</translate> <translate> For example, some extensions are too large in file size to upload using the web interface due to limitations of the web hosting environment.</translate> <translate> Using this feature you can upload extension files directly to your web server using some other means such as FTP or SFTP and place those extension files into the appropriate directory.</translate> <translate> You can then use the discover feature to find the newly uploaded extension and activate it in your Joomla! installation. Using the discover operation you can also discover and install multiple extensions at the same time.</translate>

<translate>

An extension can be installed with the discover function by doing the following steps:</translate> <translate>

  1. Upload the uncompressed extension files to the appropriate directory in your Joomla installation. For example, if you wanted to upload a site template extension to your Joomla installation you would create a directory for the template extension in the /templates sub-directory of your Joomla installation. Then you would upload the template extension files into that directory you created.</translate>

<translate>

  1. After you have uploaded the extension files, go back to the Extension Manager Discover screen and click the Discover button in the toolbar. This will initiate the search function which will search your Joomla extension directories looking for uninstalled extensions.</translate>

<translate>

  1. If the extension you uploaded is compatible with Joomla 3.x and is not already installed, it will appear in the listing of discovered extensions in this screen.</translate>

Extensions Extension Manager Install Joomla 2.5

Extensions are add-ons that expand the functionality of Joomla!. Extensions are used to add capabilities to Joomla! that do not exist in the standard package. Hundreds of Extensions are available for Joomla!, with more being developed all of the time.

Extensions are categorized into five types, as follows:

  • A Component is a mini-application that renders the main body of the page. Examples of Components are Contacts, the Front Page, and News Feeds.
  • A Module is a smaller Extension typically used for rendering a small element that displays across multiple pages. Examples of Modules include Menus and Related Items.
  • A Plugin is a section of code that runs when a pre-defined event happens within Joomla!. For example, editors are Plugins that run when an edit session is opened.
  • The Language Extension allows for the Front-end and Back-end of Joomla! to be presented in any language for which a language Extension exists. This way, Joomla! can be released in a new language with no changes to the core program.
  • A Template controls the way the content of a web site is displayed, including the location and layout of elements, colors, fonts, and so on. Templates allow the appearance of the web site to be separated from its content.

Download one or more archive files (normally ".zip" or "tar.gz" format) from the Extension provider's web site to a local directory on your computer.</translate><translate> Note: Some Extensions are installed as one file (for example, one Component or Module) while other Extensions might have two or more files (for example, a Component and a Module). If there are two or more parts, each one will have its own archive file.</translate>

<translate>

  1. Choose one of the methods describe below (usually 'Upload Package File')</translate>

<translate>

  1. When it is finished, the screen will display the message "Install Component Success". If the installation is not successful, an error message will display.</translate>

<translate>

  1. Depending on the Extension, it may be necessary to enable the Extension (for example, in the Module Manager or Plug-in Manager).</translate>

Extensions: Discover Joomla 3.0

</translate> <translate>

This screen allows you to discover extensions that have not gone through the normal installation process. This provides a method to install large extensions which are not possible to install using the normal process.</translate> <translate> For example, some extensions are too large in file size to upload using the web interface due to limitations of the web hosting environment.</translate> <translate> Using this feature you can upload extension files directly to your web server using some other means such as FTP or SFTP and place those extension files into the appropriate directory. You can then use the discover feature to find the newly uploaded extension and activate it in your Joomla! installation. Using the discover operation you can also discover and install multiple extensions at the same time.</translate> <translate>

An extension can be installed with the discover function by doing the following steps:</translate> <translate>

  1. Upload the uncompressed extension files to the appropriate directory in your Joomla! installation. For example, if you wanted to upload a site template extension to your Joomla! installation you would create a directory for the template extension in the /templates sub-directory of your Joomla! installation. Then you would upload the template extension files into that directory you created.</translate>

<translate>

  1. After you have uploaded the extension files, go back to the Extension Manager Discover screen and click the Discover button in the toolbar. This will initiate the search function which will search your Joomla! extension directories looking for uninstalled extensions.</translate>

<translate>

  1. If the extension you uploaded is compatible with Joomla! version and is not already installed, it will appear in the listing of discovered extensions in this screen.</translate>

<translate>

  1. Click the check-box to the left of the discovered extension and then click the Install button in the toolbar. This will install the extension into your Joomla! installation.</translate>

<translate>

Extensions: Install Joomla 3.0

This screen allows you to update installed extensions that provide an update server. Live update of the extension occurs without the need to manually upload and install the updated extension files. They are obtained from the remote update server using standard HTTP connection methods.</translate> <translate>

Information: Database Joomla 3.0

</translate> <translate>

This screen checks that your database table structure is up to date with your Joomla programs and lets you try to fix any problems that are found.</translate> <translate>

In a normal Joomla version update, changes to the database table structure (also called "schema") are done automatically to keep the database version synchronized with the Joomla version.</translate> <translate> If an update is done manually, or if some part of an automatic update fails, the database schema might not be updated to match the version of the Joomla program files. In this case you will see a list of database problems on the screen. You can normally fix any problems by clicking on the Fix button.</translate> <translate>

Screen.installer.15 Joomla 1.5

Extensions are add-ons that expand the functionality of Joomla!. Extensions are used to add capabilities to Joomla! that do not exist in the standard package. Hundreds of Extensions are available for Joomla!, with more being developed all of the time.

Extensions are categorized into five types, as follows:

  • A Component is a mini-application that renders the main body of the page. Examples of Components are Contacts, the Front Page, and News Feeds.
  • A Module is a smaller Extension typically used for rendering a small element that displays across multiple pages. Examples of Modules include Menus and Related Items.
  • A Plugin is a section of code that runs when a pre-defined event happens within Joomla!. For example, editors are Plugins that run when an edit session is opened.
  • The Language Extension allows for the Front-end and Back-end of Joomla! to be presented in any language for which a language Extension exists. This way, Joomla! can be released in a new language with no changes to the core program.
  • A Template controls the way the content of a web site is displayed, including the location and layout of elements, colors, fonts, and so on. Templates allow the appearance of the web site to be separated from it's content.

This screen is organized into six sections as follows:

  • Install: Allows you to install all types of Extensions.
  • Components, Modules, Plugins, Languages, Templates: Allow you to enable, disable, and uninstall Extensions of each type.
Screen.languages.15 Joomla 1.5

In the Language Manager you can set the default Language for both the Front-end and Back-end of your Joomla! web site.

Screen.modules.15 Joomla 1.5

The Module Manager is where you add and edit Joomla! Modules. In Joomla!, Modules are used to display content and/or media around the main content.

Module Facts:

  1. All Joomla! websites require at least 1 Menu Module
  2. All Other Module Types are Optional. (Examples: News, Banner, Latest News, Polls)
  3. Every Menu is accompanied by a menu module. (Example mod_mainmenu)
  4. Multiple occurrences of similar module types.
  5. Some Modules are linked to components. For example, each Menu Module is related to one Menu component. To define a Menu in Joomla!, you need to create the Menu and Menu Items using the Menus screens and then create the Module for the Menu using this screen. Other Modules, such as Custom HTML and Breadcrumbs, do not depend on any other content. See Module Manager - New/Edit for information about the different Module Types.

The Joomla! installation is accompanied with 20 module types, additional 3rd party modules can be located at the JED.

Screen.modules.edit.15 Joomla 1.5

This is where you create new Modules or edit existing Modules. This screen has two links in the upper left: Site and Administrator. The Site link is selected by default. The Site link allows you to work with Modules that will be visible on your web site's Front-end. This is where you will place most of your Modules.

The Administrator link allows you to work with Modules that show on your web site's Back-end. In many cases, it is not necessary to modify the back-end Modules for Joomla!. All of the standard Joomla! administrator functions are available with no modifications here. You only need to make changes here if you want to change the standard administrator functions.

When you create a new Module, you will select the Module Type. This will determine what type of content this Module can display. If you edit an existing Module, the Module Type will already be determined. Note that you cannot change the Module Type of an existing Module.

For detailed information about each Module type for your web site, see the Modules Site screen. For detailed information about modifying the Modules for the back end of your site, see Modules Administrator.

All Modules have two sections that are the same: Details and Menu Assignment. The Parameters are different for each Module Type.

Screen.modulesadministrator.edit.15 Joomla 1.5

This is where you will add new Modules or edit existing Modules for the back end of your Joomla! web site. When you install Joomla!, 16 built-in Modules are available for use in the back end of your web site.

This is where you will add new Modules or edit existing Modules for the front end of your Joomla! web site. When you install Joomla!, 20 built-in Modules are available for use in the front end of your web site. Some Modules, like the Menu Module, are used in every Joomla! web site. Other Modules are optional.

Note that all Module Types have the same fields in the Details and Menu Assignment sections. These are documented in the Module Manager - New/Edit screen. Each Module Type has different Parameter fields. These are documented for each Module Type below.

Screen.plugins.15 Joomla 1.5

The Plugin Manager allows you to enable and disable Joomla! Plugins and to edit a Plugin's Details and Parameters.

Screen.plugins.edit.15 Joomla 1.5

This is where you can edit details and parameters for Plugins. Some Plugins have several parameters, while others don't have any.

Screen.templates.15 Joomla 1.5

The Template Manager is where you assign a default Template to your Joomla! web site. You can also edit and preview Templates here.

In Joomla!, the visual layout of both the Front-end and Back-end of your site is controlled by the Template. Templates are extensions that contain layout and style information that tells Joomla! exactly how to draw each page of your site.

When you first install Joomla!, one Back-end Template and two Front-end templates are included. Other Templates can be installed from third-party developers as Extensions.

If you want to use the same Template for all of the pages on your site, you just assign one Template as the Default Template. You can also assign different Templates to different pages.

This is where you can preview a Template, edit a Template's HTML and CSS files, and set parameters for a Template.

Menus Menu Manager Joomla 2.5

Menus allow a user to navigate through the site. A menu is an object which contains one or more menu items. Each menu item points to a logical page on the site. A menu module is required to place the menu on the page. One menu can have more than one module. For example, one module might show only the first level menu items and a second module might show the level 2 menu items.

The process for adding a menu to the site is normally as follows:

  1. Create a new menu (using this screen).
  2. Create one or more new menu items on the menu. Each menu item will have a specific menu item type.
  3. Create one or more menu modules to display the menu on the site. When you create the modules, you will select which menu items (pages) the modules will show on.

Maintenance: Clear Cache Joomla 3.0

</translate> <translate>

Clears cache files from the cache folders if enabled under the Site Global Configuration settings.</translate>

<translate>

Cache files are temporary files that are created to improve the performance of your site. If you have made significant changes to your web site, such as changing your Template or Language, your cache files may be out of date. To avoid any problems caused by out of date cache files, you can delete all of the cache files.</translate> <translate>

After deletion of all Cache files the website may be a little slower until the cache files are re-created with use.</translate> <translate>

Maintenance: Global Check-in Joomla 3.0

</translate> <translate>

Allows Administrators to perform a global check-in of all currently pending or locked items. It then shows the results of the Global Check-in. This is useful, for example, if an Article is locked by a User who opened it for editing and never finished the editing session. In this case, other Users are not able to edit this Article. Performing a Global Check-in releases all such items.</translate> <translate>

Site Maintenance Clear Cache Joomla 2.5

This tool will delete all Cache files from the cache folders - including current ones - from your web server. As admin functions are cached too, some cache folders might appear as if they were not cleaned because they get recreated before cache content is rescanned after this action.

Cache files are temporary files that are created to improve the performance of your site. If you have made significant changes to your web site, such as changing your Template or Language, your cache files may be out of date. To avoid any problems caused by out of date cache files, you can delete all of the cache files.

  • Because this process deletes all Cache files, the website may be a little slower immediately after running Clean Cache. Once this process is complete, users lose the benefit of using the cache files until they are re-created by Joomla! to be up to date with your current site.
  • In contrast, the Purge Expired Cache option will check each Cache file individually for being out of date, but the process is slower and requires more system resources. However, the website should perform close to the same speed for users visiting your site, since all up to date files are still available for your current Joomla! site.

  • Because this process has to check each cache file individually, it is slower and requires more system resources. Once the purge process is complete there should be no loss in speed for your users, because all up to date cache files are still available for your current Joomla! website.</translate>

  • In contrast, the </translate>[[Help4.x:Maintenance:_Clear_Cache/<translate>

However, the website may be a little slower immediately after running Clean Cache, since all cache files -- including current ones -- are removed, so users lose the benefit of using the cache files until they are re-created by Joomla! to be up to date with your current site.</translate> <translate>

  • If you have a large number of cache files and your server setting for 'max_input_time' is set to less then 60 seconds, you may receive a PHP warning message saying that the process exceeded the maximum time allowed. In this case, no harm is done but all of the files may not have been purged. It is ok simply to re-run the process.</translate>

The Template Manager is where you assign a default Template to your Joomla! web site. You can also edit and preview Templates here.

In Joomla!, the visual layout of both the Front-end and Back-end of your site is controlled by the Template. Templates are extensions that contain layout and style information that tells Joomla! exactly how to draw each page of your site.

When you first install Joomla!, one Back-end Template and two Front-end templates are included. Other Templates can be installed from third-party developers as Extensions.

If you want to use the same Template for all of the pages on your site, you just assign one Template as the Default Template. You can also assign different Templates to different pages.

This is where you can preview a Template, edit a Template's HTML and CSS files, and set parameters for a Template.
