Joomla: Como fazer pequenas alterações em artigos (EN-US subtitles)
Hi, My name is Renan. I am part of the development team of the site software.com.vc This video aims to show how you can change an article or a text using joomla. This is the site of one of our clients who wants us to make some changes in content. He sent us a Word file with the specifications of the changes he wants to do. And in this case We will show in this video how to make the changes he requested. For example, on this page, he wants we add a link, a line of content. First we need access the administration part of the site that is the control panel. Only who has access to the control panel, is the site administrator. In this case, to access it, we will have go to the end of the site address and type “/administrator “. Done. It will open a page requesting a login and password. Done. We are in the joomla control panel. This is the frontend of site that is what all users see. And that part, just who has access to are the administrators. Well, let’s see what he wants in the beginning. He wants to edit this page here, which is called “Links “. So this here, this middle part of site is an article. So let’s just show where it is. In Media. Each tab, each link of this here is a different article. He is … He wants us to edit this tab here. The name of this article here is “Links”. So let’s go look for the article. To edit an item we will have to go to “Article Manager”. Or go by this shortcut. Or simply come in Content ->Article Manager. Okay, here shows all items that are on site. Each item is a piece of text. In case, he wants to edit this “links”here. Done. You’ll see here is the content of tab links. And we’ll add the exact content he want. I’m putting here the contents. Here is the website that he wants to link. Done. But here, this website is as text. I wanted to put it as a link. So how do I do? I select the website that I want to put the link and go on this icon. “Insert or Edit links”. The URL is http://www.hgcservices.co.uk This “target”specifies whether you want to open in a new window or if the site will open in the same window. I choose to open in another window. For the client, the user does, not need to leave your site to see the other. Now let’s add the site of our company. Our site is Software.Com.Vc And let’s also add a link to our page. It will also be opened in a new window. Okay, we just edit and we’ll see how it looks. I will apply. Now let’s see how the page was edited. I’ll click here to upgrade… Links. Okay, now has two lines added. And here, the two link. This… and this. If I click, opens in a new window. This is the site of his partner that he decided to put in the links page. Done. This page is already complete.
Let’s go now to the next change he desires. This is no more an Article. He wants to change a site menu. He wants to remove the menu item “Legal” and delete those two words. So how do we do this? First we have to find where it is the menu. It’s here. Let’s go to the homepage of panel (control panel). And here it is: “Menus”. This list has the menus list. Here is also a link, “Menu Manager”. In this part you can manage all site menus. So what do we do? We will not edit the menu itself, but we will edit the menu items. So I clicked there. Here is shown the entire menu structure. And each item, each row in this table is a menu item. For example, within this menu “About” has other items. In “Legal” has two others. Likewise, in “About” has four items and “Legal ” has two. In the changes he asked. What to do? We need to remove the “Legal “. So, come on remove the “Legal”. We can simply unpublish or delete it. It’s more interesting unpublish. Because, if we wish, we can add or move to another menu in future. So I will not delete, I’ll just unpublish. It will remain hidden, nobody will see it. Nobody will have access. You can see that the icon has changed. I unpublished all. Another change: He wants to take this little word that begins the menu item. So what do we do? Let me show immediately. Remove the word, right? Then we will access the menu item that we wish to edit and change his title, which is what is shown to the user. Save, ready, now is only the word “People “. Then we’ll edit the other. Save. Done now, in theory, is the way he wants. Not to show “Legal “, and little words are gone. Let’s see if there was working? I went to the home page and the words and menus are gone. It was exactly of way he wanted. Only show items that interest him. No matter what page I go. It has changed at all. Here is a portfolio that shows his work. Then go to the next. On this page “contact” He wants … …to edit only some formatting of his address. So what we gonna do? Let’s first look at contact page. Contact is an article I will show. An article is just a text that appears in the middle of the page. So what does he want? Edit a few things here.
Put it here without being in capital letters. Come on, one article, where are the articles?
In Articles Manager. we have previously accessed.
Where’s the contact page? Precisely here, “Contact. ” Done here’s the exact text he desires. Here’s like Title 4. I know that is not Title1 uppercase. The Title3 neither. So I’ll leave Title3. The layout will be adjusted so that and it will be formatted using the site default format. Although it appears that way, not to say that will appear in the same way. So I put that window on the side just to see the changes taking place. Another thing, he wants to leave centralized. To centralize or not, just select what you want and make it like you do in Word. To Left, to right, to middle. So this is pretty simple to make. Let me see… He wants… a space remove this comma. Done. Here it is … The phone is wrong. …a space here. The phone’s right. He wants to be capitalized. The ‘M’ also capitalized. Skype is correct. And here is the link to download the information about the company. Done the theory is already the way he would have liked. So here I go again on the save button. As I said last time, if I press save and it saves then closes.
If I hit apply it applies, like I do now, and still remains on the page. So let’s see the site (I will maximize) to see if it was the way he likes. Done it was exactly as he wanted.
He did not want it to be in all caps. And it was right. In Center. Without any defect. It is also important to know that joomla divides into various parts the website. The middle part is usually a component. He calls the component.
O component may be an article, a registration form. And usually when they are text articles. It also called those parts that surround the content of modules. For example, so here is a module. The logo is a module. This bottom, twitter, is a module. If I go to the homepage here, at the bottom has several modules. Each is a different position.
So imagine we want to change a module that is here. What would we do?
Go to administrator (…) and Manage Modules. In case I want to change this module “Our Partners” So we seek a module that is activated and which are called “Our partners”. Here! if I want to change it text just change like a Word document. I can put links, I can align right, left… bold. Anything. Here it says the position.
Suppose I wanted to change, put that down here, and “Investors” above. I would just change the position here. The user1 is the square in the top position on the right and user2 is probably the square below. Then we’d put user2 being here and save. And then the other, we would put user1.
And save. That would be automatically inverted. Then we can invert, for example, put the video here. Or below. So it depends on user and what the website owner wants. Remember that almost any part of the site can be edited without touching the code. The joomla allows the administrator to do anything without programming. So this is very useful to a person who does not want to mess with PHP or dealing with HTML. The goal of this video is just teaching, these small changes that can be made on site. Bye.
