PowerPoint Presentation:

Joomla is so much more than just a powerful content management system. Here is a list of features "out of the box," but the true power of Joomla is in its extensibility. User Management Joomla has a registration system that allows users to configure personal options. There are nine user groups with various types of permissions on what users are allowed to access, edit, publish and administrate. Authentication is an important part of user management and Joomla support multiple protocols, including LDAP, OpenID , and even Gmail. This allows users to use their existing account information to streamline the registration process. Media Manager The Media Manager is the tool for easily managing media files or folders and you can configure the MIME type settings to handle any type of file. The Media Manager is integrated into the Article Editor tool so you can grab images and other files at any time. Language Manager There is international support for many world languages and UTF-8 encoding. If you need your Web site in one language and the administrator panel in another, multiple languages are possible. Banner Management It's easy to set up banners on your Web site using the Banner Manager, starting with creating a client profile. Once you add campaigns and as many banners as you need, you can set impression numbers, special URLs, and more.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Contact Management The Contact Manager helps your users to find the right person and their contact information. It also supports multiple contact forms going to specific individuals as well as groups. Polls If you want to find out more about your users, it's easy to create polls with multiple options. Search Help navigate users to most popular search items and provide the admin with search statistics. Web Link Management Providing link resources for site users is simple and you can sort them into categories, even count every click. Content Management Joomla's simplified three-tiered system of articles makes organizing your content a snap. You can organize your content any way you want and not necessarily how it will be on your Web site. Your users can rate articles, e-mail them to a friend, or automatically save a PDF (with UTF-8 support for all languages). Administrators can archive content for safekeeping, hiding it from site visitors. On public Web sites, built-in e-mail cloaking protects email addresses from spambots . Creating content is simple with the WYSIWYG editor, giving even novice users the ability to combine text, images in an attractive way. Once you've created your articles, there are a number of pre-installed modules to show the most popular articles, latest new items, newsflashes, related articles, and more. Syndication and Newsfeed Management With Joomla, it's easy to syndicate your site content, allowing your users to subscribe to new content in their favorite RSS reader. It's equally easy to integrate RSS feeds from other sources and aggregate them all on your site.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Menu Manager The Menu Manager allows you to create as many menus and menu items as you need. You can structure your menu hierarchy (and nested menu items) completely independent of your content structure. Put one menu in multiple places and in any style you want; use rollovers, dropdown, flyouts and just about any other navigation system you can think of. Also automatic breadcrumbs are generated to help navigate your site users. Template Management Templates in Joomla are a powerful way to make your site look exactly the way you want and either use a single template for the entire site or a separate template for each site section. The level of visual control goes a step further with powerful template overrides, allowing you to customize each part of your pages. Integrated Help System Joomla has a built-in help section to assist users with finding what they need. A glossary explains the terms in plain English, a version checker makes sure you're using the latest version, a system information tool helps you troubleshoot, and, if all else fails, links to a wealth of online resources for additional help and support. System Features Speedy page loads are possible with page caching, granular-level module caching, and GZIP page compression. If your system administrator needs to troubleshoot an issue, debugging mode and error reporting are invaluable. The FTP Layer allows file operations (like installing Extensions) without having to make all the folders and files writable, making your site administrator's life easier and increasing the security of your site. Administators quickly and efficiently communicate with users one-on-one through private messaging or all site users via the mass mailing system. Web Services With Web services, you can use Remote Procedure Calls (via HTTP and XML). You can also integrate XML-RPC services with the Blogger and Joomla APIs. Powerful Extensibility These are just some of the basic Joomla features and the real power is in the way you customize Joomla. Visit the Joomla Extensions Directory to see thousands of ways to enhance Joomla to suit your needs.

Joomla-History:

Joomla -History Joomla! is an open source content management system written in PHP. Its purpose consists in publishing content on the World Wide Web (WWW) and intranets. Furthermore Joomla! stores data in MySQL and includes various different features such as RSS feeds, blogs, polls, page caching as well as an overall search and a helpful support for language internationalization. Concerning the history of Joomla! it has to be said that this the existence of this special open source content management system results from a fork of Mambo by the Joomla! development team in August 17, 2005. Strictly speaking the Joomla! development team created a site called OpenSourceMatters. The aim of this website consisted in distributing information to a so-called ‘mass-market’ composed of users, developers, several web designers as well as the whole community in general. Fact is that more than one thousand people had joined the site OpenSourceMatters.org within one single day. The majority of these people immediately started to post words of encouragement and support. So the website OpenSourceMatters.org received the so-called ‘Slashdot effect” as a final result. Miro CEO Peter Lamont responded to the development team in a special article titled “The Mambo Open Source Controversy – 20 Questions With Miro”. This resulted in a controversy within the free software community regarding the definition of the expression ‘open source’. Consequently discussions were started in many forums filling up with postings both for and against the actions of both sides.

Joomla-History:

Joomla -History On August 18, 2005 the project team leader Andrew Eddie, AKA “ MasterChief ”, called for community input regarding various suggested names for the open source project. The core team announced that the team itself would be responsible for the final decision for the project name based on community input. After several discussions and meetings the core team eventually decided on a name that, however, was not on the list of suggested project names provided by the whole community. On September 1, 2005 the team announced the new name of the open source content management system: Joomla! Strictly speaking Joomla! is the English spelling of the Arabic word ‘jumla” which means “all together” or “as a whole”. Example: The content management system Joomla! is perfectly qualified for websites such as shops, platforms, and informational pages that present detailed aspects and briefings about products (cars, tinte , toner, candles, windows etc.), services (consulting, etc.) and persons. Strictly speaking Joomla! makes it possible to present products, services and persons in a very structured way. Furthermore Joomla! is easy to handle, especially for a wide range of lists of products in connection with images and photos.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Pro's & Con's of Open-source What open source can offer and when to use such solutions Advantages to Using Open Source Software No cost to acquire the software and no licensing fees Software has been perfected by a community of developers worldwide and usually runs very smoothly and has very few problems. Since it is a "free" software, money for a project can be devoted to customization and implementation and results in a more complete solution Open source software are often much easier to customize than commercial software because the source code is readily available and therefore can be adapted to perfectly suit the users needs. The source code is not available when using proprietary software as the code is kept secret for competitive reasons. Therefore such applications have limitations in terms of their flexibility and capacity to be tailored exactly to your needs. Open source software are constantly being updated and adapted to today's market providing you with a well rounded software Open source systems are often developed using open tools such as PHP and Perl preventing you from being locked-in with specific vendors or software packages. There is also more support available for open tools. Many open source software were designed with integration in mind and are therefore usually much easier to integrate with other applications than the typical commercial software. The extensive community of developers involved in open source software provide online support that cannot be matched by a single company developing a commercial software Problems that arise with open source software are often rectified very quickly through postings in the online forums where developers worldwide work to resolve the issue. Commercial software companies often take anywhere from 6-12 months to create a patch to resolve or debug any existing problems.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Disadvantages to Open Source Software Open Source Software do not come with the same 'out of the box' deployment as typical commercial applications and therefore the service cost may be higher. However, in most cases, this cost is offset by the fact that Open Source Applications do not have licensing or acquiring fees attached to them. The appropriate solution should be discussed with an experienced consultant prior to making a choice on which path to take. Most open source software are targeted to small and medium sized businesses and may lack many of the options provided by large corporate commercial software. Although the online support for open source software is quite large they do not come with your typical guarantee and one-on-one support expected with commercial applications. Open source software do not come with any sort of manual or documentation on how to use or customize them whereas most commercial applications will provide basic steps on their implementation and tend to be more user friendly. Open source applications were designed by developers for developers and therefore usually require more experienced staff than if you were to use commercial applications.

5 myth about joomla:

5 myth about joomla There do exist some myths about the free content management system Joomla!. We have already examined them very carefully and will consequently present you our results. So if you are interested in finding out a few tricky details about Joomla!, just check our five main points about Joomla! as one of the most popular content management systems. “Joomla! is free. Joomla! is something for beginners. Joomla! is inappropriate for … . Joomla! is insecure. Joomla! is not user-friendly.” These are just a few out of a broad variety of statements about Joomla!. As you can see arbitrary claims about Joomla! have developed in the course of time. Nevertheless the truth actually turns out to be very different. myth I: Joomla! is free You may have to pay any money for Joomla! as a content management system, but in spite of all it still has its own and individual price: time. Working with Joomla! takes time, especially in the event of using it professionally. The power of Joomla! consists in the fact of initially investing much time in order to have later the possibility to concentrate on the basic and important things.

5 myth about joomla:

5 myth about joomla myth II: Joomla! is something for beginners Joomla! is now available in version 1.5. In the past there was one core development team working for the so-called Mambo project. These members formed a new and independent team in order to create Joomla!. Consequently the entire know-how which the members gained by developing the general Mambo project was flowing into the first version of Joomla!. In other words Joomla! 1.5 represents a professional and mature version that is suitable for almost any Internet and web project. myth III: Joomla! is inappropriate for … … web and online shops, blogs, news portals with more than 50,000 articles, community sites with thousands of users and visitors, general intranet platforms, portfolios, complex business pages as well as project pages including project management tools. This claim is definitely wrong! Joomla! is together with professional extensions suitable and appropriate for all already mentioned examples.

5 myth about joomla:

5 myth about joomla myth IV: Joomla! is insecure Fact is that security does not represent a state but a process. No matter which content management system is used, as long as the administrator keeps it always up to date, it is definitely safe and secure. Consequently, the safety and general security of a Joomla! website primarily depends on its administrator. Updates that are published within regular intervals should be recorded promptly. If there are additional enhancements and extensions for Joomla! available, the administrator of the respective website should also mind their regular updates. myth V: Joomla! is not user-friendly Joomla! is becoming from version to version more user friendly. The main aim of Joomla! actually consists in creating a so-called user-optimized system that offers an easy start for beginners as well as a very good development environment for professionals – nothing more, nothing less. Besides, it can be mentioned that the trend is always more developing towards greater simplicity.

Create joomla:

Create joomla Joomla! is a 100% free content management system (CMS), strictly speaking a so-called open-source CMS that proves to be freely downloadable. This content management system makes it possible to quickly and easily create websites without having the need to spend plenty of money in web programming, web design or a web agency in general. However, this article will offer lots of interesting information, advices and tips in order to create an attractive and professional Joomla! website. First of all it has to be mentioned that creating a web page by means of the open-source content management system Joomla! does not require programming skills or general programming knowledge. The only thing you are asked to know is being able to work with a computer. If you are not very practiced or skilled in working with a computer in general, it is advisable to read books about Joomla! or use different Joomla! tutorials and forums in the internet. The internet provides a great offer of helpful tips, information, manuals as well as instructions that will teach you how to work with Joomla!.

Create joomla:

Create joomla As already mentioned Joomla! represents a content management tool that is very easy to use. In order to create a Joomla! website, you have to sign up for a so-called hosting account, strictly speaking a web space, and need to have the content management system Joomla! itself successfully installed. The website SiteGround.com for instance provides the possibility to get a free as well as professional Joomla! installation with your personal Joomla! hosting account for which you will have to sign up in advance.

Create joomla:

Create joomla After having finished the Joomla! installation on your personal hosting account, you can immediately start adding content, images, photos, text, etc. In this case Joomla! proves to be very easy to use and handle. Strictly speaking Joomla! is the perfect, nearly the best, content management system considering the general creation of the structure of a website. Within the next step you are asked to manage and think about the constitution of your website. Concerning this matter Joomla! uses sections and categories. A section represents a main menu item; a category, however, can be part of a section and represents a sub menu item. In other words both sections and categories are responsible for the whole and general structure of a Joomla! web page. After having created sections and the respective corresponding categories you can begin adding content to both elements. Consequently your web page will transform into a comprehensive web presence including images, photos, etc. Concluding it has to be mentioned that you get offered a wide range of different Joomla! templates in order to give your page an attractive and appropriate design. Every single template is downloadable; many are free, others, however, are liable to pay costs.

Open source websites: All change on the internet:

Open source websites: All change on the internet Wikipedia www.wikipedia.org Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia of more than 2.3 million articles in 180 languages. It is currently the most used reference site on the internet. What makes it all the more startling is that the site is built by and maintained by its volunteer readers. Anyone who uses the site can easily and quickly update the content on any entry. This has created one of the most vibrant, informative and accessible information systems in the history of human knowledge. Firefox www.mozilla.org/products/firefox A web browser is the software you use to view a website. Most people use Microsoft's Internet Explorer, but it has been criticised for security flaws. There is an alternative; Firefox is an innovative piece of software created by a handful of people working in a non-profit foundation, but incorporating internet experience from users all over the globe. Their efforts have successfully created the main rival to the megabucks Microsoft - and it's free and easy to use. Open Office www.openoffice.org Essential to any modern office are the dull but vital "paper-pushing" tools - office software. Open Office is a free, easy-to-use system that does what it says on the box. Its openness to different file formats makes it invaluable; for example, it can save and read Microsoft Office file formats, and save documents as PDFs. Given that the alternatives to Open Office are often expensive and feature-heavy office suites, this is a great tool that also saves you money.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Bittorrent www.bittorrent.com Bittorrent lets you download files, be they music, electronic books, videos or anything. It is what's known as a "peer-to-peer application" - the kind that's scaring the music and film industries. It allows people to exchange files easily, and is an efficient method of using a computer network, such as the internet. Bittorrent breaks up larger files and makes use of every cranny of transfer space - which means that the greater the demand for a file, the quicker you can get it. MediaWiki www.mediawiki.org/wki/MediaWiki Wiki is a collaborative document system that allows lots of people to work on the same document regardless of geographical location. It's a powerful tool for enabling lots of content to be put in one place. It is a simple and fantastically useful ideas that after using you find yourself remarking, "Why didn't somebody think of this before?" MediaWiki is the name of one of the most popular bits of wiki software - and coincidentally is the one that powers Wikipedia. Xvid www.xvid.org Video, once it is transferred on to a computer, requires huge files. To make video useful, it needs to be shrunk down. Without some type of technology to compress it, video would be unusable on most computers and almost impossible to transport over the internet. Software called "codec" is needed to do the shrinking. This is what happened to music with MP3 technology - it squashed songs down by around 90 per cent with no appreciable loss of quality. pHpBB Bulletin Boards www.phpbb.com If there's one thing the internet excels at, it's communication. Bulletin boards are virtual noticeboards that allow users to exchange views - not always coherently, or politely. PHpBB powers thousands of such forums, including the one where Police Commander Brian Paddick ignited a media frenzy by posting: "The concept of anarchism has always appealed to me. The idea of the innate goodness of the individual that is corrupted by society or the system." Open source websites: All change on the internet

Open source websites: All change on the internet:

Open source websites: All change on the internet Outfoxed www.outfoxed.org Outfoxed is a documentary rather than software, but what its makers are doing is an experiment in open source film-making. The documentary is a highly politicised look at Rupert Murdoch's Fox News channel. What is innovative is that, after watching the film, you find that if you disagree with its stance you can - with the film-makers' blessing - download the unedited interviews that make up the film and re-use them to cut your own version. dyne:bolic www.dynebolic.org Most of the world's computers use Microsoft Windows as the operating system. Despite its popularity, Windows does have drawbacks - cost and security holes, for starters. There is a free alternative: the geeky Linux/GNU. In the past it was known as reliable but hard to use. Dyne:bolic is a multimedia studio on a CD that you simply pop into any computer and start it up, instantly turning it into a Linux/GNU system without affecting existing things on your computer. GIMP www.gimp.org Need to draw a logo? Crop a digital photo? Don't want to pay through the nose for software to do the task? Then Gimp is for you! The unfortunately titled Gimp is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. Behind all the letters there is an excellent graphics tool for drawing and manipulating pictures. It is the open source equivalent to software Photoshop, except that it's free (as in freedom, as the GNU activists say) and developed by volunteers.

Open source websites: All change on the internet:

Open source websites: All change on the internet Apache http://httpd.apache.org/ If the internet is an information superhighway, you might wonder what the digital Tarmac is made of - the answer is Apache. Apache is a web server system developed by another open source community, and currently about 68 per cent of websites on the internet are powered by it. If you are ever asked what type of server is needed to host your website, just say Apache and sit back as others marvel at your technical knowledge. SourceForge www.SourceForge.net If you need a piece of software, it's a good idea to check SourceForge first. SourceForge.net is the world's largest open source software development website, hosting more than 100,000 projects with the largest repository of open source code and applications. It provides free hosting to open source software development projects and sums up the ethos of open source projects; the model is the rapid creation of solutions within an open, collaborative environment
