Hey there Joomla community,

My name is Klein and I am fairly new to Joomla. However, I have just successfully installed Joomla on my Linux server.

I have C++ and PHP experience, and I hope that will come in handy.

As for the task, does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

Welcome to the contest!

As for components, Joomla! keeps backend code and frontend code in totally separate folders. Toolbars are used very frequently in the administrator backend, so I would start there to see some examples. All of the backend component code is kept in administrator/components/, with each component having its own folder. Traditionally, this folder has contained a toolbar.nameofcomponent.php file and a toolbar.nameofcomponent.html.php file; both [drive] the toolbar code depending on what task the user is performing. In Joomla! 1.5, a lot of the toolbar code for components are being migrated directly to the template files of the views instead of the 'toolbar' files. Look for files containing the string JToolBarHelper.
