In Joomla! an Article is a piece of content consisting of text (HTML), possibly with links to other resources (for example, images).

Articles are the basic units of information in the content system and the bottom level in the content hierarchy. Since Joomla! 1.6, each Article is in exactly one Category, and Categories can be in other Categories. It is also possible to have Uncategorized Articles that exist without being associated with any Category.

In Joomla! 1.5 and earlier versions, an Article was the third level in the hierarchy Sections -> Categories -> Articles.

Articles are maintained using the Article Manager (help screen) which can be reached in the Administrator (Back-end) by clicking on the Content menu, then the Article Manager menu item.

A component is a kind of Joomla! extension. Components are the main functional units of Joomla!; they can be seen as mini-applications. An easy analogy would be that Joomla! is the operating system and the components are desktop applications. They are usually displayed in the center of the main content area of a template (depending on the template).

Most components have two main parts: an administrator part and a site part. The site part is what is used to render pages when being called during normal site operation. The administrator part provides an interface to configure and manage different aspects of the component and is accessible through the Joomla! administrator application.

Joomla! comes with a number of core components, like the content management system, contact forms and Web Links.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is the most widely used stylesheet language on the world wide web. It is standardised by the W3C and can be used to style any kind of XML document, including XHTML, SVG and XUL.

It was conceived to ease the separation of content (written in XML markup) and presentation (written in CSS) of documents. CSS can be used to define and alter almost all presentation aspects of a document, like colours, font sizes and types, text direction, element sizes and positioning, etc.

Joomla provides many class- and id-attributes in its XHTML output, which can be used to alter its presentation through the use of CSS definitions for said classes and ids.

CSS can also be used to improve accessibility of documents. It also provides mechanisms to present the same XML markup in different ways, optimized for different devices like screen-readers, speech-synthesizing browsers, printers, and Braille-based, tactile devices.

An extension is a software package that extends your Joomla! installation in some way. A small selection of extensions is included with the default Joomla! installation but many more are available from the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

The term extension is generic and the following specific extension types are available (listed alphabetically):

  • Component – adds custom functions to your site that can be selected from menus
  • Language – defines an additional language for your site
  • Library  – provides functions to be used by other extensions
  • Mambot – modifies content in articles
  • Module – shows nonessential data in a side box, possibly on multiple pages
  • Package – bundles related extensions
  • Plugin – modifies content in articles or provides functions to extend other extensions
  • Template – define the look, feel, and navigation capabilities of your site

For an overview of the most important extension types and the functionality they provide, see Extension types (general definitions).

Hosting requirements

Installing Joomla! for the first time is very easy.
Joomla!’s built-in installer makes setting up your new site a breeze.

Before we start installing Joomla!, there are a couple prerequisites that need to be met to install successfully:

  • Hosting – whether you have a dedicated server, or shared hosting plan, you’ll need some sort of web hosting that meets the following requirements:
    • PHP v. 5.2+
    • MySQL 5.04+
    • Apache 1.3
  • MySQL Database – you’ll need access to a MySQL database, as well as the following credentials.
    • DB Name
    • Host Name
    • Username
    • Password
  • FTP Client – for transferring files to your server. If you don’t already have an FTP client that you use, we recommend Filezilla (ensure transfers are set to Binary)
  • Latest Release of Joomla! 2.5.X – you can find that here Download .

Installation

With these requirements met, and resources in place, we are ready to install Joomla

To begin our installation, we’ll first need to move our Joomla installation package to the server. This can be accomplished by simply moving the downloaded package to your server, then unpacking it. Or you can unpack the files on your local computer, then move the Joomla installation over to your server. Either way, the Joomla installation needs to be unpacked in the root of your site.

Caution – if you unpack the files on your own computer, then copy them to your server, be sure to move only the files contained INSIDE the Joomla package. If you transfer the Joomla folder as well, your site will be accessed at yoursite.com/Joomla instead of yoursite.com.

The Joomla installer now makes it very easy to install Joomla. With the files transferred to your server, access the Joomla installation through your web browser by entering the address of your site, for example http://www.example.com.

If you’re just getting started, take a look at the Absolute Beginners Guide to Joomla!. There are a great many conceptual ideas there that you need to understand.

There are five parts to setting up your frontpage.

  1. Choose a desirable template for your site. Install it, and get it basically working. The template determines the column layout for your site.
  2. Choose and configure your modules, so your frontpage displays the right menus, etc. Modules are those things like menus, login forms, banner-ad positions, “Breaking News” boxes, etc., that show up on the pages of your site.
    • Use Extensions/Module Manager in your backend menu to do this. Edit each module in turn to place it in the correct spot on your template (for example, right, left, breadcrumb, etc.)
    • You can disable the modules you don’t want to see, enable the ones you do, position them within your template, and control their order from the Module Manager. When you’re doing this, make sure you have not enabled caching.
    • If caching is enabled, it may look like your changes are not taking effect, which can drive you crazy.
    • Use the Preview button on the backend (upper right), and Shift-Reload on your browser, liberally to make sure you have things right. Change one thing in the backend, then view the frontpage again.
    • Note well: all modules in 1.5 are controlled from Extensions / Module Manager, even the ones that aren’t really extensions.
  3. Make sure your frontpage is configured so that the front page manager can control the order of articles in your front page. You need to set certain advanced parameters correctly.
  4. Use the Content Manager to enable certain articles to be published on the frontpage. Only enable the ones you want on the frontpage.
  5. Use the Front Page manager to set the order of articles on your frontpage.

A plugin is a kind of Joomla! extension. Plugins provide functions which are associated with trigger events. Joomla provides a set of core plugin events, but any extension can fire (custom) events. When a particular event occurs, all plugin functions of the type associated with the event are executed in sequence. This is a powerful way of extending the functionality of the Joomla! Framework. It also offers extension developers a way to allow other extensions to respond to their actions, making extensions extensible.

The Joomla! plugin architecture follows the Observer design pattern. The JPlugin class is derived from JObserver and provides the means to register custom plugin code with core or custom events. The JEventDispatcher class, derived from JObservable, is an event handler which calls all plugins registered for a particular event, when that event is triggered.

Prior to Joomla! 1.5 plugins were known as mambots. Mambots were able to change content only and were based on certain signal words. Since then their scope has been stretched and extended to such an extent that to enhance the meaning of the new functionality the developers decided to change the name from mambots to plugins. Joomla! 1.5 includes legacy support for Joomla! 1.0 mambots.
