Joomla! Official Documentation

Reader profiles

Find the profile that most accurately describes your role and you will find the documentation that you need more quickly. These are the most frequent profiles...

None of the above? Then look for more user profiles.

Getting started

If you have only recently starting working with Joomla you will probably have experienced the pain of learning a new system. New terminology, new ways of doing things, perhaps even the web itself may be new to you. Then let these guides relieve some of that pain.


You don't need to register here if you just want to read the documentation.

You should only register if you want to make changes to the information contained here. Also note that registration on this wiki is entirely separate from registration on our other sites, such as the forum.

Coming soon

The Joomla Platform is a separate release of the framework on which the Joomla CMS is constructed. The next release of the Joomla CMS, codenamed "Bowerbird" will most likely be based on the 11.1 release of the Platform.

Joomla Platform 11.1

The anticipated launch date for Platform 11.1 is 30 April 2011. Development will be time-based with a three-month release cycle.

Quick links for Administrators
Joomla! 1.6

Joomla! 1.6 is the current version of Joomla. The following pages will get you started with Joomla 1.6.

For more information see the Joomla 1.6 category page.

Quick links for developers
Joomla! 1.5

Joomla! 1.5 is still widely used and will continue to be supported until April 2012.
