Basic Content Management Print E-mail

Once your Joomla! CMS site is setup, here is a basic example of what steps are needed to edit or create new content.  When you are ready to add or modify content, just login to the Adminstration portion of your website, for example (replace with your domain name).  You'll see a login screen like this...


Joomla Login

Enter the Username and Password that were supplied when your account was created. (Leave the Language as "Default").  Click on the "Login" button.  You will be presented with the Administrators Control Panel as shown. Click on the "Article Manager" icon which is highlighted below (or select Article Manager from the Content menu). 

Joomla Control Panel

On the Article Manager screen you will find a list of all the articles that make up your site.  From here you can manage which articles are published/unpublished, on the front page or not and as your site grows you can filter articles by Section, Category or Author.  For now we just want to edit a page, so we will find our article in the list and click on its title, in this case "Sample Article" as noted below.

Article Manager

You will now be presented with the Editor screen (shown below).  Here you can make your changes much like you would edit a document with Word.  You can also assign the article to a particular Section and Category.  In the upper right hand corner you will find buttons that allow you to Preview, Save, or Close your article as you edit it.  There is much more you can do, but that covers the basics.


Once your content has been updated, just remember to Logout using the Logout button in the upper right hand corner of all of the Administration screens (see below).  You can just as easily manage other elements on your site like Menus, Users, Advertisements, Polls, etc..  You don't have to worry about transferring files, or waiting for your designer to get back to you - you are in control! To try this out for yourself, contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
