Welcome to the Fruit Shop

We sell fruits from around the world. Please use our website to learn more about our business. We hope you will come to our shop and buy some fruit.

This mini site will show you how you might want to set up a site for a business, in this case one selling fruit. It shows how to use access controls to manage your site content. If you were building a real site, you would might want to extend it with e-commerce, a catalog, mailing lists or other enhancements, many of which are available through the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

To understand this site you will probably want to make one user with groups set to customer and one with group set to grower. By logging in with different privileges you can see how access control works.

Watermelon is a wonderful and healthy treat. We grow the world's sweetest watermelon. We have the largest watermelon patch in our country.

At our orchard we grow the world's best oranges as well as other citrus fruit such as lemons and grapefruit. Our family has been tending this orchard for generations.

Subcategories

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.

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.
