Getting Started

Before you can dive in, make sure that you have your Joomla username and password.  Your designer may have created a login area right on your website somewhere.  If not, no worries!  It's just as easy to edit your site from the back-end using the administrative panel.

To access your admin area, open your browser and type your website's name.  After the .com (.org, .edu, etc.) type /administrator.  When you do, you should see something like this:

Enter the username and password that your designer provided to you.  You will be sent to the admin panel which will look something like this (depending on your version of Joomla):
