The best way to add Joomla to a website is to go for the use of Joomla components. Although it’s a bit of a hassle to install them manually, this can become a daunting task if you don’t know what you’re doing. Below are the basic steps you need to follow in order to add the most desired Joomla components.
To install the first set of components that you will need, you will need to visit the Joomla website and look for the “Tools” tab. Here you will find all the necessary components that you need in order to get your website up and running.
One thing you’ll need to do is choose the “Install Components” option. This will automatically install the necessary modules on your computer. If you want to add other modules to the package, just click on the corresponding link on the top right corner of the “Tools” page.
The second step will be to select the modules that you want to install and finally install the components that you have selected. All you need to do is to put in the required information and then click on the “Install Components” button. You can also install themes and modules individually if you don’t feel like using them.
The third step will be to see if the module or component that you have selected is actually available for download. This is very important as you wouldn’t want to start using the component and end up having to reinstall it because it’s not available. To make sure you’ll be able to successfully download and install the component, simply look for the button that says “Download Selected Component.”
After clicking this button, it will take some time before it downloads the module or component. As long as it’s the one you wanted, you can then start using it. A message box will appear with a progress bar showing how much time you need to wait until you can access the component.
The next step you’ll need to do is to install the extension that you want to use. In order to do this, you’ll need to go back to the “Tools” page and click on the “Extensions” tab. Then, click on the “Install Extensions” button. This will automatically install the extension that you’ll be using.
You’ll be prompted for the type of setting that you would like to use for this extension. The settings vary depending on the type of browser that you are using. However, the main settings are basically the same.
After installing the extension, it will be ready to be used. To add a new component to your website, click on the “+” icon on the toolbar. On the left-hand side of the screen, you will see a list of components that you can add.
Adding a new component to your website will require that you click on the “Add” button at the bottom of the page. At this point, you can choose which component you would like to use and the name of the component. This will then make it available to the user.
To use the component, simply insert the component code and then click on the “Go” button. The information that the component contains will be available in the Joomla control panel.
After you have installed all the required Joomla components, you can then add as many components as you want. Make sure that you select the most preferred one from the list so that it will be easy for you to manage.
