Joomla!Day Hungary 2009

It's already a tradition, that on the second Saturday of October the Hungarian Joomla! users come together on their Joomla!Day, or Joomla!Nap in Hungarian. This year it will take place on October 10, from 10.00 am CET to 5.00 pm CET in Hungary, organized by Joomla! User Association Hungary (JUAH). The last year venue worked well, so we decided to return to CEU Conference Center, Budapest.

Joomla Day Brazil 2009

After a very tough dispute between the two largest cities in Brazil - Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the Wonderful City, as Rio is also known, was chosen as headquarters for the Joomla! Day Brazil 2009. The place where the event will be carried through, at the feet of the Sugar Loaf mountain, has a conference room for 300 people and an ample space for coffee-break and networking.

Important developers, companies and members of the Joomla Project! have already confirmed their presence. We have planned a full day with lectures for beginning users and developers, case studies and a lot of networking.

We feel this last one is the most valuable, because our wish is for the Community to grow as a whole and for everyone to walk side-by-side towards a better CMS and a better Internet.

We have a limited availability for attendance to this event and we are offering a discount for those who sign up until July 25. So Hurry up if you are serious about learning more about Joomla! and meeting prominent members of the community.

Content Layouts

  • PDF

Joomla! provides plenty of flexibility when displaying your Web content. Whether you are using Joomla! for a blog site, news or a Web site for a company, you'll find one or more content styles to showcase your information. You can also change the style of content dynamically depending on your preferences. Joomla! calls how a page is laid out a layout. Use the guide below to understand which layouts are available and how you might use them.


Joomla! makes it extremely easy to add and display content. All content is placed where your mainbody tag in your template is located. There are three main types of layouts available in Joomla! and all of them can be customised via parameters. The display and parameters are set in the Menu Item used to display the content your working on. You create these layouts by creating a Menu Item and choosing how you want the content to display.

Blog Layout

Blog layout will show a listing of all Articles of the selected blog type (Section or Category) in the mainbody position of your template. It will give you the standard title, and Intro of each Article in that particular Category and/or Section. You can customise this layout via the use of the Preferences and Parameters, (See Article Parameters) this is done from the Menu not the Section Manager!

Blog Archive Layout

A Blog Archive layout will give you a similar output of Articles as the normal Blog Display but will add, at the top, two drop down lists for month and year plus a search button to allow Users to search for all Archived Articles from a specific month and year.

List Layout

Table layout will simply give you a tabular list of all the titles in that particular Section or Category. No Intro text will be displayed just the titles. You can set how many titles will be displayed in this table by Parameters. The table layout will also provide a filter Section so that Users can reorder, filter, and set how many titles are listed on a single page (up to 50)


Wrappers allow you to place stand alone applications and Third Party Web sites inside your Joomla! site. The content within a Wrapper appears within the primary content area defined by the "mainbody" tag and allows you to display their content as a part of your own site. A Wrapper will place an IFRAME into the content Section of your Web site and wrap your standard template navigation around it so it appears in the same way an Article would.

Content Parameters

The parameters for each layout type can be found on the right hand side of the editor boxes in the Menu Item configuration screen. The parameters available depend largely on what kind of layout you are configuring.
