Joomla! Tutorials and More
The way Joomla! is designed separates out the key tasks involved in producing a website for efficient maintenance of the software. One of these tasks is to create the aesthetic (the look, feel and layout) of the site.
In some cases it may not be possible to use the Extension Manager: Update method to update your site. One reason for this might be that you are using a non-standard distribution (for example, a distribution with a different default language installed). Another reason might be that your don't have a reliable enough internet connection to support automatic installation.
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.
By default, the Joomla! template available module positions. However, in some cases you want to add some other module positions. In this tutorial we will create a module position located just below the main text of the site.
In Joomla!, submenus can be shown either as one menu with two or more levels or as completely separate menu modules. To show how to do this, we will step through creating a two-level menu and then see how to show it either as one large menu or as separate parent and child menus.
After you upgrade from Joomla! 1.5 to 1.7, the old template of Joomla! 1.5 can not be used anymore and you have to reinstall the template is compatible with the new version of Joomla. But if you want to use your old template with Joomla! 1.7, you can try converting them to be used with Joomla! 1.7
