The Joomla content management system is the workhorse of most online businesses. It makes use of powerful components such as modules, templates, menu tools, plugins, modules and many more. When the components are put together well, the functionality of the website can be improved to provide maximum functionality. The components that comprise the system are optimised to provide the correct information to the user, and the menus and toolbars are optimised to provide a user-friendly user interface.
Most of the Joomla components are designed to work with other components and not stand on their own. This is achieved by using the integration techniques provided by the Joomla framework. This means that many of the components available on the internet are quite hard to use in their default state.
With such functionality and a compatibility checker the Joomla components are easily adaptable to the task at hand. If one component was not working as it should, the compatibility checker will not throw up a warning and will not disable the component.
In this way, all of the components is a given of general guidelines that are easy to use. This makes it simple to add new features or change existing components. The updated components are then kept updated on a regular basis and the components are generally tested thoroughly before being released.
These general guidelines are not, however, the only way of organising the website, but they provide the foundation for the website, and are used by the website’s designers and developers to build upon. This foundation is then used to add more features and components when it is required.
The website needs to be easily navigated, and therefore some of the most important components need to be free form based components. This will help users to navigate around the website and to find the information they are looking for. It will also help users get to other areas of the website.
Not all websites need to have a content management system in place, but the system is needed in order to update the website. Updates can be done manually, but using the system with its default settings will ensure that all updates are performed automatically.
Most users of the content management system have trouble accessing certain components. If the website has been made more accessible, then these components need to be put on display. This can be achieved by using some image overlays on the website.
Some of the images can be animated and the animations will make it easier for the user to access the components. The webmaster can then have the images automatically run for various parts of the website, and the user will not have to continually scroll down to see what the page is all about.
Joomla Components should also have components that help users to add products to their shopping cart. Users will not be able to access the content management system if they cannot add a product to their shopping cart. This can be achieved by having a component that adds products to the shopping cart.
Joomla components are designed to be simple and easy to use, and will not require any maintenance for the first few months. Eventually the components will become a part of the website and will need to be manually updated or replaced.
