Getting Started

First of all, why are you here? What is this Aurora Joomla?

This is a  content management system that allows Aurorans to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of the content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. The software brings together the template and the content to create web pages.


Logging in

To login, use  login form or the login menu link on the "This Site" menu. Use the user name and password that were created for you.

There is content that only logged-in users are able to see.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "submit article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published and put it in the Joomla category.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).
