Components

All components also are used in the administrator area of your website. In addition to the ones listed here, there are components in the administrator that do not have direct front end displays, but do help shape your site. The most important ones for most users are

  • Media Manager
  • Extensions Manager
  • Menu Manager
  • Global Configuration
  • Banners
  • Redirect

 

Media Manager

The media manager component lets you upload and insert images into content throughout your site. Optionally, you can enable the flash uploader which will allow you to to upload multiple images. Help


Extensions Manager

The extensions manager lets you install, update, uninstall and manage all of your extensions. The extensions manager has been extensively redesigned for Joomla! 1.6, although the core install and uninstall functionality remains the same as in Joomla 1.5. Help


Menu Manager

The menu manager lets you create the menus you see displayed on your site. It also allows you to assign modules and template styles to specific menu links. Help


Global Configuration

The global configuration is where the site administrator configures things such as whether search engine friendly urls are enabled, the site meta data (descriptive text used by search engines an indexers) and other functions. For many beginning users simply leaving the settings on default is a good way to begin, although when your site is ready for the public you will want to change the meta data to match its content. Help


Banners

The banners component provides a simple way to display a rotating image in a module and, if you wish to have advertising, a way to track the number of times an image is viewed and clicked. Help



Redirect

The redirect component is used to manage broken links that produce Page Not Found (404) errors. If enabled it will allow you to redirect broken links to specific pages. It can also be used to manage migration related URL changes. Help

You can reach me in a variety of ways. My show Calender is listed on the shows page while my studio is open by appointment only. Please feel free to phone, text, or email me. Help

The search component proviedes basic search functionality for the information contained in your core components. Many third part extensions also can be searched by the search component. Help

Art that's made to be handled. Glazed in my signature River Rock these stoneware pieces are durable and lightweight. Help

The users extension lets your site visitors register, login and logout, change their passwords and other information, and recover lost passwords. In the administrator it allows you to create, block and manage users and create user groups and access levels. Help

Please note that some of the user views will not display if you are not logged in to the site.

Table Top Fountains

My fountains are made of a hand-sculpted stoneware bubbler and a wheel-thrown stoneware bowl. It includes a marine-grade pump with adjustable flow settings and a quiet motor. Enjoy the sound of soothing water in any room in your home - an ancient Feng Shui symbol of wealth and prosperity.

Kiln Talk

I love the written word. I married a writer but I am not one. Occasionally, I will wash the clay off, bandage the glass cuts and collect my thoughts on this blog. I hope you enjoy reading it more than I do writing it.
