Joomla is vast in documentation and versatile in functionality. Hence we would come across soon with new updates or fresh news snippets about Joomla. In the previous article (Part 2) we have seen and understood how Joomla’s Admin panel works, organizes and helps your online operations.

Use Joomla & Joomla Extensions to Build any kind of Website – Part 2

In the previous article (Part 1) we have understood Joomla, its essentials and how to install it on a local system of on hosting server. We have also gone through the basics of how to create different websites by installing the plug-ins and customization of the same. In this part, we will discuss further on some of the functionalities of Joomla that which enhance the overall appeal of websites, add little extra flavor to the aesthetics and get you the traffic that you are aspiring for. Many modifications, what we generally call as ‘customization’, of the features can be done by the Administrator through the control panel. To access this panel, you need to access it through a separate URL which looks something like this – www.yourwebsite/administrator. This page seeks your Admin user name and password which you have entered in the Main Configuration section during installation. Enter those details and there you are, just like Steven Spielberg engrossed in making Jurassic Park or Schindler’s List (whichever one you like!). Now, after getting behind the scenes, you need to call the shots “Start”, “Roll”, “Action” and you may won’t like to say “Cut” because action at Joomla never gets over. … Continue Reading…
