This Namespace has been archived - Please Do Not Edit or Create Pages in this namespace. Pages contain information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, will not be improved and its content may be incomplete.

I'm a newbie to creating extensions and really wish some info was here, so I'll take a stab at adding what I figure out in hopes of helping others.

Access the JFactory using the php code:

    $var = &JFactory::content();

Here are a few lines that are included in examples. They should each be explained.

    $database = &JFactory::getDBO();
    $document = &JFactory::getDocument();
    $uri = & JFactory::getURI();     
    $id = $row->id;

The following provides access to the logged-in user info. Read more here... Accessing_the_current_user_object

    $user =& JFactory::getUser();
