Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone. - See more at: http://www.joomla.org/about-joomla.html#sthash.lX0C9W4C.dpuf
The New York City Joomla Users Group meets monthly at our host Touro Graduate School of Business, this semester on every 3rd Thursday of the Month.
If you already are using Joomla, if you are using Wordpress and need more functionality in a CMS, or if you need to make choices or find support for your business website, these sessions will be of interest to you.
Chairperson: Stewart Newfeld
6:00 - 6:15 - Introductions and Miscellaneous Business
6:15 - 8:00 - PRESENTATION #1: Normally, only Superusers can login into a Joomla site that is taken offline. Stewart Newfeld will show how easy it is to assign "offline access permission" to selected non-superusers and customize the Site Offline Logo. This lets you stage a site and keep it away from the public until you are ready to launch it, or to create a site to function as an intranet site. In addition, Stewart will explain how to make different menu items available to different groups of users. An example would be to create items only accessible to an organization's Board Members, or to stage additions to a webiste that only a few people can see while it is undergoing development and before the material is approved to go public. The techniques demonstrate apply equally to Joomla 2.5 and 3.x
PRESENTATION#2: Creating interactive forms fill-in forms like an IRS 1040 Tax Form, that can be downloaded from your website, is an often requested website feature. We'll have a quick demonstration of how suprisingly easy this is to accomplish with Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat.
8:00-8:30 Lightening Round Question and Answers, Networking.
