WYSISWY Editor

Images

Using the fields behind the Images and Links tab you can browse your website folders or upload images directly from your computer for use in your article.

Article Title

Give your article a catchy title.

Categorisation

Select a category for your article. Pages can be setup to display content from any or all categories.

Contextual Toolbar

This is your toolbar. The buttons indicate the actions available to you at any one time. The button configuration will change depending on where you are in the admin area.

Edit HTML directly

If you like to modify HTML directly just turn off the editor and go for it.

If you have content that is only for logged in users or administrators you can set the access level here. This kind of access control is available for all content including articles, categories, menu items and sidebar modules.

Easy to use

Edit your own content using familiar tools

Joomla makes it super easy to create new content using a WYSIWYG editor similar to what you use in a desktop application. Create your content, upload images, set publishing dates all from a single simple interface.

Do all this without writing a line of computer code.

Linking your articles to a menu is trivial and you can also control what is displayed in sidebars and footers with just as much ease.


Custom applications

It's kind of what we excel at :)

One of the features of Joomla which has contributed to it's phenomenal growth is it's underlying code framework.

Joomla is built on a highly modular, extendable codebase. It's a programming concept called Object Oriented Programming (OOP) and a code structure called Model-View-Controller (MVC).

For developers it means we can extend the codebase with our own modules, plugins or overrides. For bigger projects we can quickly build an entire new component with backend and front end functionality. All the code required to interface with the database, manage users, access control, categorisation and CMS functions is already written and part of the Joomla Framework.

For our clients it means we can build what ever you need to meet your requirements.

Why don't you give us a call? The coffee's on us.
