How to Joomla!
There are many static websites on the Internet, you won't be able to tell immediately if it is static, but the chances are, if the site looks basic and is for a smaller company, and simply delivers information without any bells and whistles, it could be a static website. Static websites can only really be updated by someone with a knowledge of website development.
To allow Registered Users submit an article/news on the Joomla! Front Page, we must create a menu item with function submit article/news on the Front Page. This Menu Item is shown only after users have logged. If you install the sample data, this Menu Item is already available in User Menu.
Joomla! allows you to create many menu, each menu is a group that contains many menu item. The menu will be displayed on the front page through the module menu. By default Joomla! already have a menu called Main Menu, you can use this menu or create other menus.
Upgrading a live website is not something to be undertaken lightly so please read the Upgrade Instructions carefully. The instructions may appear complicated because there are many different configurations that need to be considered, but we have tried to write them so that you need only select a single path from the many available depending on your particular circumstances.
When you saved a Menu Item, this will save the new item and place it as the last element (or sub-element, in case of sub-menu items) in the menu. You can use the green arrows in the Order column to change the item position within the menu.
After installation, Joomla starts out with one Super Administrator. To add or edit users, you must be at least a manager. To create admins, you must be a Super Admin. For a small organization with one web master, much of this may be unnecessary.
Super Admin is a user with the highest powers in the management of the site. In some situations, you can not login with Super Admin acount. For example, your site may have been "hacked" and had the passwords or users changed. Or perhaps the person who knew the passwords is no longer available. Or maybe you have forgotten the password that was used.
The following tutorial will show you how to create a new Menu Item that points to the article. Based on this information you will be able to add a new menu item to any of your defined menus pointing to any article you have previously created for your site.
