Many types of websites can be built and maintained more easily using a content management system (CMS). A CMS provides a web-based interface for creating and organizing content. The content is stored in a database, then consistently presented according to a set of templates and preferences, which eliminates the need to handcraft each page in HTML. Joomla! is a popular, easy-to-use, open-source CMS built in PHP. It has near-limitless functionality, thanks to its community of extension developers. In Joomla! 1.5 Essential Training, Joseph LeBlanc uses Joomla! to build a small-business website from scratch with no programming at all, from installation to launch. He demonstrates how to create and organize content; add menus, sidebars, and other features; change the look with templates; install plug-ins and extensions; and much more. Exercise files accompany the course.
Each user can have the Joomla user interface translated to their language of choice. However, you must first install language packs in Joomla before they can be used. In this movie, we will install a language pack, set the user's language then show how the front end interface gets translated. Let's go to the Extension Manager. We have a French language pack that we downloaded from a community website. We'll click Browse. Select the package.
Then click Open. Now let's click Upload File and Install. The language is now installed and ready to be used. Let's assign this language to one of the users in the system. We'll go to Site, User Manager. James just got back from his trip of France, and he's bragging about how much French he knows so we're going to set his language to French and see what happens when he logs in. Open up James Callaghan and said the Front-end Language to French.
Now click Save. Now let's go to the front end and login with his username. You'll notice that the Logout button has been translated, as well as Written by and the date. The voting results have also been translated. However, the content that we've entered in the website is not translated. The language pack simply serves as a way of translating the Joomla user interface. You can make your users feel at home by providing the Joomla interface in their preferred language.
After installing the desired language pack, assign the language to the user. Only the Joomla user interface is translated. Your content is not translated.
