Joomla is a CMS (Content Management System) that has been around since 2005. It’s used by many people all over the world for both personal and business websites. The Joomla community is very active in creating plugins, extensions, templates and other items to help make it easy for people to use the platform. As with any popular software, there are some terms you need to know before using it so you don’t get lost! In this blog post we will discuss some of these terms, which should be enough for anyone who wants to start using Joomla today!
- Aricles: Articles are the main content on your Joomla website. You can use articles to create blog posts, pages for static information, or product descriptions! Categories and menu items let users navigate through these articles with ease.
- Categories: A category is a way of grouping related things together so they’re easier to find. Articles live within categories which allow you to organize them by type (e.g., “Articles”), author (“by Jon Doe”) or any other classification that makes sense for your site’s layout and design
- Template: A template is a pre-made design that you can customize to match your website. Templates are usually sold by third party providers, but there are many free templates available for users who want to build their own themes or modify the ones they already have. Joomla has its default “template” which cannot be changed unless you modify the code.
- Extension: An extension is a piece of software that you can use on your Joomla website to do something specific, like adding an online shop or social media integration for example. Extensions are usually created by third party developers and they get plugged into the site with just a few clicks. There are even extensions available which allow users to add more templates!
- Menu: The navigation menu is where all of your articles and content are found! You can use this area as a homepage for your site or create individual pages that link to other posts within the category. This is what users will see when they first visit your website so it’s important not only to make it easy to find information but also appealing.
- Navigation: Navigation refers to how people move around on websites using buttons located at the top of webpages – which appears like links from desktop computers – such as Home button or Articles/Blog Posts . These items should always include a back arrow just in case people want to go back and change their mind, as well as a search bar so they can find something quickly.
