Page Subheading: option menu Extensions
The Joomla! content management system lets you create webpages of various types using extensions. There are 5 basic types of extensions: components, modules, templates, languages, and plugins. Your website includes the extensions you need to create a basic website in English, but thousands of additional extensions of all types are available. TheÃ‚Â Joomla! Extensions Directory is the largest directory of Joomla! extensions.
The language switcher module allows you to take advantage of the language tags that are available when content, modules and menu links are created.
This module displays a list of available Content Languages for switching between them.
When switching languages, it redirects to the Home page defined for the chosen language. Thereafter, the navigation will be the one defined for that language.
The language filter plugin must be enabled for this module to work properly.
To view an example of the language switch moduler module, go to the site administrator and enable the language filter plugin and the language switcher module labellled "language switcher" and visit the fruit shop or park sample sites. Then follow the instructions in this tutorial.
Components Počet článkov: 6

Modules Počet článkov: 23
Modules are small blocks of content that can be displayed in positions on a web page. The menus on this site are displayed in modules. The core of Joomla! includes 17 separate modules ranging from login to search to random images. Each module has a name that starts mod_ but when it displays it has a title. In the descriptions in this section, the titles are the same as the names.

Navigation Modules Počet článkov: 2
Navigation modules help your visitors move through your site and find what they need.
Menus provide your site with structure and help your visitors navigate your site. Ã‚Â Although they are all based on the same menu module, the variety of ways menus are used in the sample data show how flexible this module is.
A menu can range from extremely simple (for example the top menu or the menu for the Australian Parks sample site) to extremely complex (for example the About Joomla! menu with its many levels). They can also be used for other types of presentation such as the site map linked from the "This Site" menu.
Breadcrumbs provide users with information about where they are in a site.

Languages Počet článkov: 0
Joomla! installs in English, but translations of the interfaces, sample data and help screens are available in dozens of languages. Help
If there is no language pack available for your language, instructions are available for creating your own translation, which you can also contribute to the community by starting a translation team to create an accredited translation.
Translations of the interfaces are installed using the extensions manager in the site administrator and then managed using the language manager.
If you have two or more languages installed you may enable the language switcher plugin and module. They should always be used together. If you create multilingual content and mark your content, menu items or modules as in specific languages and follow the complete instructions your users will be able to select a specific content language using the module. By default both the plugin and module are disabled.
There are a number of extensions that can help you manage translations of content available in the Joomla! Extensions Directory.
Plugins Počet článkov: 7
Plugins are small task oriented extensions that enhance the Joomla! framework. Some are associated with particular extensions and others, such as editors, are used across all of Joomla!. Most beginning users do not need to change any of the plugins that install with Joomla!. Help
