Joomla! for Managers – Page 1
If you are reading this, it means your webmaster has selected you to be a manager on yournew Joomla! system. What is Joomla!? Joomla! is a two time award-winning system forpublishing content on the internet, also known as a CMS. Joomla! makes it easy to build andmanage a website. Using Joomla!, you can easily update, manage, and improve yourwebsite. What can you do with Joomla!? Lets find out!Joomla! gives your site a powerful publishing system to work with. There are basically sevengroups that are influential in making sure the site works.
1. Visitors
Visitors are the reason most websites exist. Visitors go to the site and read the content that isthere. Most activity that goes on in the site is to make sure the user has a great experience.
2. Users
Users are people who have registered on your site. These people probably have specialprivileges on your site, like being able to see articles non registered user can't, and receivingthe weekly email update.
3. Authors
The only difference between authors and users is that authors can submit content to your site.

They articles an author writes do not necessarily go straight onto the site; first they must bereviewed by someone else.
4. Editors
Editors are authors who can edit the authors' content. Their responsibility is to verify all of theinformation is correct.
5. Publishers
It is the publishers' job to choose what will go on the site and what won't. They review thearticles that the author submitted and the editor edited, and make sure they are appropriate togo on the site. Once the publisher approves an article, you will be able to see it on the site. Itis the publishers' responsibility to decide if they really want every article the authors submittedto appear on the site.
6. Managers
You are a manager. You get to manage the web site. You have all of the permissions ofpublishers, but you can also log into a special section of the site for administrators. You havecontrol of most parts of the site, and can access the article manager. It is your job to makesure everything goes smoothly and everyone can do everything they need to.
7. Administrators
Administrators have total control over the whole site. If anything goes wrong, it is theadministrators' fault!This is the structure that would be used for a large site. If you are managing a smaller site,check with your administrator to see which duties you are responsible for.

When you normally log into your Joomla! site, you will use the user log in form on the mainpage. However, since you are a manager, youhave special privileges. To log into theadministrator area, click on the “AdministratorLogin” link on the main menu. Alternatively,your webmaster may have chosen to removethat link. If this is the case, go to the“administrator” subdirectory of your site. You dothis by putting “/administrator” after your main url. For example, if your site is“www.examplesite.com”, the you could get to this link by going to“www.examplesite.com/administrator”. Here, log in using the username and passwordsupplied by your webmaster.All of your articles are managed from the ArticleManager. You can get to the Article Manager byclicking on “Content”, and then on “Article Manager”.The Article Manager is your one stop spot to manageall of the articles on your site.
