      • 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.

          Media ImageModules are small blocks of content that can be displayed in positions on a web page. The menus on this site are displayed in modules. The core of Joomla! includes 17 separate modules ranging from login to search to random images. Each module has a name that starts mod_ but when it displays it has a title. In the descriptions in this section, the titles are the same as the names.

          • Navigation Modules

            Navigation modules help your visitors move through your site and find what they need.

            Menus provide your site with structure and help your visitors navigate your site.  Although they are all based on the same menu module, the variety of ways menus are used in the sample data show how flexible this module is.

            A menu can range from extremely simple (for example the top menu or the menu for the Australian Parks sample site) to extremely complex (for example the About Joomla! menu with its many levels). They can also be used for other types of presentation such as the site map linked from the "This Site" menu.

            Breadcrumbs provide users with information about where they are in a site.

      • Park Blog

        Here is where I will blog all about the parks of Australia.

        You can make a blog on your website by creating a category to write you blog posts in (this one is called Park Blog). Each blog post will be an article in that category. If you make a category blog menu link with 1 column it will look like this page, if you display the category description (this part) displayed.

        To enhance your blog you may want to add  extensions for comments, interacting with social network sites, tagging, and keeping in contact with your readers.   You will also enable the syndication that is included in Joomla! (in the Integration Options set Show Feed Link to Show an make sure to display the syndication module on the page).

        These are my photos from parks I have visited (I didn't take them, they are all from Wikimedia Commons).

        This shows you how to make a simple image gallery using articles in com_content.

        In each article put a thumbnail image before a "readmore" and the full size image after it. Set the article to Show Intro Text: Hide.

      • Growers

        We search the whole countryside for the best fruit growers.

        You can let each supplier have a page that he or she can edit. To see this in action you will need to create a users who is in the suppliers group.  
        Create one page in the growers category for that user and make that supplier the author of the page.  That user will be able to edit his or her page.

        This illustrates the use of the Edit Own permission.

"This program has completely shifted and reshaped my way of thinking--not only my body and eating philosophy-- but it has begun to form my sense of spirituality. I've been introduced to yoga due to the program. Yoga, so far, has been a vital contribution to my recovery. Thanks to the program, I have also been introduced to some amazing people who have provided me a healthy, inviting platform to discuss my eating disorder. It is because of the people, the yoga and the program that I am finally motivated to seek a life of recovery and happiness."

"The Reconnect with Food Program was a truly transformational experience. It deeply healed hurt parts of me that I didn't even know existed. I feel much more grounded, purposeful, and present. I am more connected with and loving of all aspects of myself, which has allowed me to feel more connected to others. I feel free of so many of the ways I was holding myself back and keeping myself stuck. I am happier than than I have been in a long time. I came here to address an eating disorder, but I left with experiences, understandings, and tools that have changed the way I live my life. I truly feel that after this experience I have everything I need to face any challenge that I may encounter, that I don't have to struggle through life anymore. This program is indescribable. It is unlike any advice I've been given or anything I've read in a book, because it is a deep, personal and holistic experience."

I can finally move on and enjoy my life, with the weight now lifted off my shoulders. I never thought I could do it until I came here, and all these wonderful people helped me in this journey, I'm extremely grateful. "
