Joomla is so much more than just a powerful content management system. Here
is a list of features "out of the box," but the true power of Joomla is in its

The Media Manager is the tool for easily managing media files or folders and
you can configure the MIME type settings to handle any type of file. The Media
Manager is integrated into the Article Editor tool so you can grab images and
other files at any time.
There is international support for many world languages and UTF-8 encoding.
If you need your Web site in one language and the administrator panel in
another, multiple languages are possible.
It's easy to set up banners on your Web site using the Banner Manager,
starting with creating a client profile. Once you add campaigns and as many
banners as you need, you can set impression numbers, special URLs, and more.
The Contact Manager helps your users to find the right person and their
contact information. It also supports multiple contact forms going to specific
individuals as well as groups.

Web Link Management
Providing link resources for site users is simple and you can sort them into
categories, even count every click.
Joomla's simplified three-tiered system of articles makes organizing your
content a snap. You can organize your content any way you want and not
necessarily how it will be on your Web site. Your users can rate articles,
e-mail them to a friend, or automatically save a PDF (with UTF-8 support for all
languages). Administrators can archive content for safekeeping, hiding it from
On public Web sites, built-in e-mail cloaking protects email addresses from
Creating content is simple with the WYSIWYG editor, giving even novice users
the ability to combine text, images in an attractive way. Once you've created
your articles, there are a number of pre-installed modules to show the most
popular articles, latest new items, newsflashes, related articles, and more.
Syndication and Newsfeed Management
With Joomla, it's easy to syndicate your site content, allowing your users to
subscribe to new content in their favorite RSS reader. It's equally easy to
integrate RSS feeds from other sources and aggregate them all on your site.
The Menu Manager allows you to create as many menus and menu items as you
need. You can structure your menu hierarchy (and nested menu items) completely
independent of your content structure. Put one menu in multiple places and in
any style you want; use rollovers, dropdown, flyouts and just about any other
navigation system you can think of. Also automatic breadcrumbs are generated to
help navigate your site users.
Templates in Joomla are a powerful way to make your site look exactly the way
you want and either use a single template for the entire site or a separate
template for each site section. The level of visual control goes a step further
with powerful template overrides, allowing you to customize each part of your
Integrated Help System
Joomla has a built-in help section to assist users with finding what they
need. A glossary explains the terms in plain English, a version checker makes
sure you're using the latest version, a system information tool helps you
troubleshoot, and, if all else fails, links to a wealth of online resources for
additional help and support.
Speedy page loads are possible with page caching, granular-level module
caching, and GZIP page compression.
If your system administrator needs to troubleshoot an issue, debugging mode
and error reporting are invaluable.
The FTP Layer allows file operations (like installing Extensions) without
having to make all the folders and files writable, making your site
administrator's life easier and increasing the security of your site.
Administators quickly and efficiently communicate with users one-on-one
through private messaging or all site users via the mass mailing system.
With Web services, you can use Remote Procedure Calls (via HTTP and XML). You
can also integrate XML-RPC services with the Blogger and Joomla APIs.
These are just some of the basic Joomla features and the real power is in the
way you customize Joomla. Visit the Joomla Extensions Directory to see thousands of ways to
enhance Joomla to suit your needs.
