User Notes in Joomla 2.5

User Notes is a great new feature that has been added to Joomla 2.5 to help manage all those administrators and registered users that have accounts on your Joomla website.

In large websites with hundreds of user accounts it is sometimes hard to remember, over a period of time, who is who and what role each user may have on the website.

Front End Login to Joomla

On any Joomla website you can login to the front end of the website without needing a specific link to the front end login page. You may ask, why you would want to login to the front end of the website? In some circumstances, an administrator may wish to login to the front end to see content that is marked in their group as 'special' and can only be seen on the front end after logging in. 

You could easily add a login form on the website or a direct menu link to the login page but as an administrator you may not want regular users accessing the login page at all, and hence displaying a login module or login link may not be acceptable.

The Module Manager

A great feature of Joomla is the Module Manager, which allows you to insert various functions into your website. Perhaps you want to include a search bar, or a latest news updates box, or a menu contained within your websites side bar. The module manager is where all this action begins.

Joomla already has a whole lot of great default modules you can begin using straight away, and there are also literally thousands of other modules and plugins you can download from the Joomla Extensions Directory that have been submitted by many Joomla users around the world.

Staging and Live Server Publishing

Joomla 1.5 Working Copy[THIS TUTORIAL IS PENDING COMPLETION]

In large organisations there are may be a requirement for development and staging servers of a website. This allows publishers and editors with easily view and play around with content on a working version of the website before it is published to the live servers.

The development and staging servers also allow for testing and evaluation of extensions and content that is setup on the site but when the editor or web administrator is happy with the content on the site, instead of redoing all of their work again on the live server, the administrator should be able to push their new content and changes live rather than rebuilding again.

This tutorial shows how to publish content live from a staging server using a Joomla component called "Working Copy".
