About Joomla

What is Joomla?

Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

What Joomla! can do?

Joomla is used all over the world to power Web sites of all shapes and sizes. For example:

  • Corporate Web sites or portals
  • Corporate intranets and extranets
  • Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
  • E-commerce and online reservations
  • Government applications
  • Small business Web sites
  • Non-profit and organizational Web sites
  • Community-based portals
  • School and church Web sites
  • Personal or family homepages

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "This Site" menu or by adding /administrator to the end of you domain name.

Log in to the administrator using the username and password created during the installation of Joomla.

Using Typography

Video Tutorial Currently Available! Launch the Joomla Using Typography Video Tutorial now!

Every RocketTheme template is accompanied by custom content styles known as Typography. This guide outlines how to use Typography in your content.

Typography - RokCandy Mode

All the typography in the template is using RokCandy syntax which is outlined at the RokCandy Examples page. In this guide, we will use the Attention Span Style, which uses the [div class="attention" class2="typo-icon"]...[/div] syntax.

  • Login to the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Content → Article Manager; or, if you wish to use the syntax in custom modules, Go to Extensions → Module Manager
  • Choose the Article, or Custom Module
  • Insert [div class="attention" class2="typo-icon"] .... some content .... [/div]
  • Save

As RokCandy is not affected by the stripping functions of the WYSIWYG editor, you can insert the RokCandy snippets without any issue. If you are in HTML mode, the snippets will still function.

Typography - HTML Mode

Every RokCandy typographical element can be used in its HTML form as outlined at the HTML Examples page. HTML typography allows for more custom control in the article but requires an additional step. In this guide, we will use the Attention Span Style, which uses the <div class="attention"><div class="typo-icon">...</div></div> syntax.

Content Editor

  • Login to the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Content → Article Manager; or, if you wish to use the syntax in custom modules, Go to Extensions → Module Manager
  • Choose the Article, or Custom Module
  • Click the HTML mode or equivalent in your editor
  • Insert <div class="attention"><div class="typo-icon"> ... some content ... </div></div>
  • Save
If you are using the TinyMCE editor, go to Extensions → Plugin Manager and select TinyMCE 2.0. Locate Code Clean-up on Save and select Never.

This prevents the stripping of HTML code from your content.

No Editor

  • Login to the Joomla administrator
  • Go to Content → Article Manager; or, if you wish to use the syntax in custom modules, Go to Extensions → Module Manager
  • Choose the Article, or Custom Module
  • Insert <div class="attention"><div class="typo-icon"> ... some content ... </div></div>
  • Save

Note, with the Content Editor (WYSIWYG) enabled, you need to enter HTML mode otherwise the typography will not work. If you are running no editor, this is not the case as you are interacting with the content at a code level.
