Quick Tour of the New Joomla 3.0 Control Panel

Joomla 3.0 is out, and it is bringing a complete new look to keep up with other CMS systems. In this article I will give you a quick tour to the new control panel in Joomla 3.0

Home Dashboard


The home dashboard is more intuitive. Links and sections are easier to find for new users and it is cleaner than in previous versions. The new dashboard has a three column layout and a cleaner top bar menu, which has all the tools available in Joomla.

Quick Links


The quick links section gives you a quick access to the most important sections of Joomla, such as “Add New Article”, “Menu Manager” and “Module Manager” Not only that, it also has a ‘version verifier’ that will check if your Joomla version and extensions are up to date.

Joomla Bottom Bar


Joomla introduces a new bottom bar that displays the number of visitors to your site, number of admins, and a quick access to the private message section. This bottom bar will display on any section of the control panel.

Joomla Top Bar Menu


This top bar will contain access to every section of your Joomla installation. Previous Joomla versions came with a confusing and messy top bar menu. Joomla 3.0 features an intuitive top bar menu, with a brand new design and it is now more organized than before.

Control Panel Sub Menu

control_subThis sub menu has links to have a quick access to the Global configuration and system information of your Joomla site. It is an improvement over the previous versions, which made those hard to find the links to those sections.
