Earlier this week, I was working with Joomla 3.2 when I noticed there’s a few nice improvements made in Joomla 3.2, especially in the UI department. So what does a blogger do? He makes notes, and (tries to write) a series of blog posts.
Using the (hash)tag #j32improvements we’ll be taking a look at some of the improvements, because to quote myself:
Improvement #1: Editing an article from within a menu item
Before Joomla 3.2, hen you added a single article to a menu item, and you wanted to edit it later, you were setting off on an adventure.
- You find the page you want to edit on the site.
- Open the Menu manager, and locate the menu item.
- Take note of the article title.
- Head to the Article Manager.
- Locate the article, and open it.
- Edit the article, and save it.
Surely, there must be a more direct route, right? Well, now in Joomla 3.2 there is! If you open the menu item, you’ll see a new button next to the article title.
When you click the “Edit” button, the article editor opens in a new window – and you can start editing the article straight away. Nice and easy, right? Definitely a big improvement, and a great start of this series.
We already love the new feature. Which new features do you love? Which should you blog about? Let us know in the comments, tweet @jandmore using #j32improvements or mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
