The Following is a general guide on what each of the forums here on the 1.5 Section relates to.

If you are using Joomla! 1.0 there are Forums for this older version here

Please do not post everything in General but consider what the subject you are asking about relates to and post accordingly.

General Forum:

for all questions relating to Joomla 1.5 that do not relate to any of the other Board Titles.
If it is not a question about Joomla! 1.5 specifically or an Extension etc then it does not belong here.
Questions relating to the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED), for example, should go in the Sites and Infrastructure child forum specifically for this topic.
Reporting "bugs" can be a tricky one some times, to see if it is an easily (relatively speaking) problem post it here, Moderators can always move it to the 1.5 Development Q&T forum once it has been confirmed as a bug or potential bug requiring a detailed look by Developers - who for the most part are too busy to get the chance to visit these "public" forums too often.

Installation Forum:

for all questions/discussions relating to the Installation of the Joomla! core package and associated server and database related question.
This does not include the installation of Third Party Extensions (Templates, Components, Modules, Plugins, Languages), as these all have their own boards.
Whilst the subject of individual Hosting Companies or issues with PHP, MySQL, Apache, will crop up we cannot guarantee that you will always get the answer you perhaps want and will therefore need to go to their own Web sites for specific help.
Use this forum for issues relating to moving your Joomla! Web site between different hosts, from your local host server to a remote host, and for changing the directory in which a site is installed.

Windows IIS Server based installations Sub-Forum
Dealing with the unique issues arising when installing Joomla! onto the Windows IIS server 5 - 7.

Migrating & Upgrading Forum:

for all questions relating to the updating of a current release of Joomla! 1.5 and the Migration of a Joomla! 1.0.x, Mambo 4.x.x, other CMS Web site to Joomla! 1.5 installation. As well as using the recommended Joomla! Migration Tools.
It DOES NOT include updating or migrating individual Third Party Extensions (Templates, Components, Modules, Plugins, Languages) which are the responsibility of the Extension Developer and not Joomla! - use the Extensions Forum where the Extensions types have their own boards.

Security Forum:

for all questions relating to the Security of your Joomla! Web site and how to resolve particular issues within your server that have a direct impact on Joomla! You can ask questions about your server or database security, but bear in mind Apache, IIS, PHP, MySQL all have dedicated fora where you are more likely to get specialized assistance.

Administration Forum:

for all questions relating to the Back-end Administrator and the functions of managing your Joomla! Web site. This includes the Menus, Managers, User Management and other similar topics.
Changing or configuring Joomla! post-installation for example FTP Layer issues, permission issues, questions relating to images, parameters, and problems with the Installer and the Core Extensions.

Extensions Forum and Child Fora:

For all questions relating to individual Third Party Joomla! Extensions - Plugins, Modules, Components. SEF/SEO Extension questions should be made in the SEO forum below.

Template Forum and Child Fora:

As well as general discussions on creating and using Templates in Joomla! and the associated use of CSS & Design, HTML, also discuss Accessibility and Usability issues and questions. There are lots of entries in the documentation wiki that you may find helpful. visit http://docs.joomla.org and check out the listings.
For all questions relating specifically to the 4 default Joomla! Templates MilkyWay, Beez, JA Purity, and Khepri,
Also ask questions relating to Template Overrides.

Search Engine Optimization:

Use this forum for all discussions and questions relating to Search Engine Optimization, Search Engine Friendly URL's and all related Components, Modules, and Plugins whether by Core or Third Party Developers. Check out http://docs.joomla.org/Security_and_Per ... enabled.3F as a starter and read other forum posts before adding another new Topic!

Languages Forum:

General discussion on the use and functionality of alternate languages in Joomla! which by default only ships with en-GB language files (apart from the Installation files)

Performance:

Speed issues, caching, database, and other related topics on how to maintain and improve the performance of your Joomla! installation. This forum is not for questions about Joomla! "not working" or "how to recover from deleting a file" for example, but Performance issues that affect how the site is displayed on the Internet for example slow page response or exceptional use of server resources.

Thank you.
