Congratulations! You have a Joomla site! Joomla makes it easy to build a website just the way you want it and keep it simple to update and maintain.
Joomla is a flexible and powerful platform, whether you are building a small site for yourself or a huge site with hundreds of thousands of visitors. Joomla is open source, which means you can make it work just the way you want it to.
If this is your first Joomla! site or your first web site, you have come to the right place. Joomla will help you get your website up and running quickly and easily.
Start off using your site by logging in using the administrator account you created when you installed Joomla.
If you are an experienced Joomla! 1.5 user, this Joomla site will seem very familiar. There are new templates and improved user interfaces, but most functionality is the same. The biggest changes are improved access control (ACL) and nested categories. This release of Joomla has strong continuity with Joomla! 1.7 while adding enhancements.
Joomla! 2.5 continues development of the Joomla Framework and CMS as a powerful and flexible way to bring your vision of the web to reality. With the administrator now fully MVC, the ability to control its look and the management of extensions is now complete.
Welcome to Gantry 5 featuring Hydrogen, the first theme built on the Gantry 5 framework. If you want to get started, the best way is to navigate to the Gantry Administrator via your platform's Administration panel.
Once you are in the Gantry 5 Administrator, you will be able to edit virtually every aspect of your site from its Layout to its Style. You can even refine how the menus appear using Gantry 5’s new Menu Editor.
You can set different style preferences for different pages, and have them assigned accordingly using the Assignments administrative panel.
Look for more information on Gantry 5 in our documentation, and stay tuned to the RocketTheme Blog for more information on new features and development updates as development continues.
