• Extensions ( 0 )

      The Joomla! content management system lets you create webpages of various types using extensions. There are 5 basic types of extensions: components, modules, templates, languages, and plugins. Your website includes the extensions you need to create a basic website in English, but thousands of additional extensions of all types are available. The Joomla! Extensions Directory is the largest directory of Joomla! extensions.

        Component ImageComponents are larger extensions that produce the major content for your site. Each component has one or more "views" that control how content is displayed.In the Joomla! administrator there are additional extensions suce as Menus, Redirection, and the extension managers.

    • Park Blog ( 1 )

      Here is where I will blog all about the parks of Australia.

      You can make a blog on your website by creating a category to write you blog posts in (this one is called Park Blog). Each blog post will be an article in that category. If you make a category blog menu link with 1 column it will look like this page, if you display the category description (this part) displayed.

      To enhance your blog you may want to add  extensions for comments, interacting with social network sitestagging, and keeping in contact with your readers.   You will also enable the syndication that is included in Joomla! (in the Integration Options set Show Feed Link to Show an make sure to display the syndication module on the page).

    • Photo Gallery ( 0 )

      These are my photos from parks I have visited (I didn't take them, they are all from Wikimedia Commons).

      This shows you how to make a simple image gallery using articles in com_content.

      In each article put a thumbnail image before a "readmore" and the fiull size image after it. Set the article to Show Intro Text: Hide.
