What Is Joomla

Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS)

Basically a Content Management System (CMS) is a web based software program that allows you to edit, create and extend your own website. It separates design and layout from content, making adding a new page as simple as:

  1. Writing a document in a software program like Notepad++ and saving it
  2. Going to a menu screen and click 'New', then click a browse button to select a type of menu item - similar to the browse system for an attachment in emails
  3. Give the menu item a title
  4. Still within the menu item, browse to find the article you created in step one - exactly the same as attachments in emails or any other file browse system
  5. A one click option to select either a top level menu item (parent), or second/third level menu item (child) - displayed under the parent
  6. Click 'Save' - that's it.

You have now created an article and linked it to a menu.
