Component packaged with Joomla! 1.6 Core.

How to access

Select Site → Site Maintenance → Global Check-in from the drop-down menu of the Joomla! Administrator Panel.


Selecting this menu option will cause Joomla! 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.

At the top right you will see the toolbar:

  • Check In. Checks-in selected items. Works with one or multiple items selected.
  • Options. Opens the Options window where settings such as default parameters can be edited. See Options.
  • Help. Opens this Help Screen.

(Icons need 1.6 update)

Column Headers

  • Checkbox. Check this box to select one or more items. To select all items, check the box in the column heading.
  • Database Table. The name of the table checked.
  • Items to check-in. The number of items that are currently checked-out.

Quick Tips

  • Make sure no one is busy editing any items before you perform a global check-in. When a Global Check-in is done, all items are checked in, including those currently being edited.
