Getting Help

There are lots of places you can get help with Joomla!. In many places in your site administrator you will see the help icon. Click on this for more information about the options and functions of items on your screen. Other places to get help are:

Getting Started

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. The Joomla! software brings together the template and the content to create web pages.

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.

Logging in

To login to the front end of your site use the login form or the login menu link on the "This Site" menu. Use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles.

In managing your site, you will be able to create content that only logged-in users are able to see.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "submit article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published and put it in the Joomla category.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Learn more

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.


As you make your Joomla! site you will control the details of the display using options also referred to as parameters. Options control everything from whether the author's name is displayed to who can view what to the number of items shown on a list.

Default options for each component are changed using the Options button on the component toolbar.

Options can also be set on an individual item, such as an article or contact and in menu links.

If you are happy with how your site looks, it is fine to leave all of the options set to the defaults that were created when your site was installed. As you become more experienced with Joomla you will use options more.


Καλως ήλθατε

Καλώς ήλθατε στη σελίδα του χωριού μας. Το Ψάρι Ηραίας Αρκαδίας, είναι ένας μικρός οικισμός (όπως βλέπετε και στην κεντρική φωτογραφία), όμορφος, κτισμένος στη ρίζα του Άη Λιά.

    Βρίσκεται στην τελευταία απόληξη του Μαινάλου προς τα δυτικά ορίζοντας κατά κάποιο τρόπο τον ορεινό χώρο της ευρύτερης περιοχής – μιάς και βρίσκεται στα 900 μ. πάνω από την θάλασσα.

    Το Ψάρι κυκλώνεται από ένα τεράστιο δάσος πουρναριών, που δίνει φρεσκάδα στον χώρο. Το καταπράσινο τοπίο, έργο μοναδικό της άγριας φύσης, ακούμπησε επάνω σε χέρσα χωράφια, σκέπασε αιώνιες ξερολιθιές, έκρυψε επιμελώς την αψάδα της πέτρας και μας χαρίζει απλόχερα χιλιάδες αποχρώσεις του πράσινου.

    Το Ψάρι, είναι ένας μικρός οικισμός σήμερα. Έχει και αυτό τη δική του ιστορία στο χρόνο, και μέσα από τη σελίδα μας έχουμε αρχίσει σιγά – σιγά να την εξιστορούμε. Δεν αναπολούμε το παρελθόν, αλλά η γνώση του, μας δίνει δύναμη να ζήσουμε στο παρόν.

    Το χωριό μας είναι οι άνθρωποί του, και τώρα και πάντα. Και μέλημα κύριο της παρουσίας μας εδώ, είναι οι Ψαραίοι όπου γης, η φωνή μας να γίνει και φωνή τους. Προς τον σκοπό αυτό κινείται η σελίδα μας, και θέλουμε την συμμετοχή, ζητάμε την θέση όλων σας για το χωριό μας.


                                              Άϊντε λοιπόν Έλληνα μου
                                                      Να ταξιδέψουμε
                                             Στους δρόμους που φέρνουν
                             Στη θύμηση και στη συντροφιά των προγόνων σου
                                             Στους δρόμους που φέρνουν
                                            Στη γνώση της καταγωγής σου
                                               Στη γνώση του εαυτού σου
                                                   Άιντε λοιπόν ξεκινάμε
                                     Τα πουλιά , οι αγγελιοφόροι των εθνών
                                             Ας μας δείχνουν το δρόμο
                                                Ας μας συντροφεύουν
                                          Την πατρίδα μας και τον λαό μας
                                           Τον λαό των Ελλήνων να δούμε

 Καλή περιήγηση … 


Sample Sites

Your installation includes sample data, designed to show you some of the options you have for building your website. In addition to information about Joomla! there are two sample "sites within a site" designed to help you get started with building your own site.

The first site is a simple site about Australian Parks. It shows how you can quickly and easily build a personal site with just the building blocks that are part of Joomla. It includes a personal blog, weblinks, and a very simple image gallery.

The second site is slightly more complex and represents what you might do if you are building a site for a small business, in this case a Fruit Shop.

In building either style site, or something completely different, you will probably want to add extensions and either create or purchase your own template. Many Joomla users start by modifying the templates that come with the core distribution so that they include special images and other design elements that relate to their site's focus.

  • Extensions

    The Joomla! content management system lets you create webpages of various types using extensions. There are 5 basic types of extensions: components, modules, templates, languages, and plugins. Your website includes the extensions you need to create a basic website in English, but thousands of additional extensions of all types are available. The Joomla! Extensions Directory is the largest directory of Joomla extensions.
