What is Joomla?

Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS) that provide the functionality to manage and display our church website.  JOOMLA.ORG is the home of Joomla and the primary reference site.  This article will just provide some basics.

Frontend or Backend - What's the difference?

Joomla has the concept of frontend and backend.  General users who view the website are using the frontend (  The creation of the website structure, look and feel, functionality and content generally happen on through the backend administration interface (  Given this greater level of control in the backend, a username and password are always required.

Simple editing of existing content can occur through the frontend and will be topic in another article.

Edit Font is Small

It's just the default font for the editor.  To ensure all pages have a similar look don't change the font size of normal Paragraph text and in general don't directly change the font size nor font family.  You can use the Format drop down and select format style such as Paragraph, H1 (Heading 1), H2 which has some special meaning as it is used in article titles and will generate a line under the title.  Most articles can uss H3 and H4 as needed for sections as I did in this document (H3).

Page or Article - What's the difference?

We refer to web pages as a display of content on a website.  Joomla tends to call a page an article.  For example this Basic Joomla article is an article or page.  Feel free to use either term however, Joomla will tend to only use the term article.
