source code

Post by 777 » Sun Jul 13, 2008 8:07 pm

Hello,
I'm kinda new to joomla and I'm trying to understand the backend structure.
In particular, I want to understand the basic main menu items like news and blog.

in the downloaded files, under components/components/com_content/content.php
I don't understand where these functions are defined. (line 632 and line 739)
HTML_content::showContentList()
BlogOutput()

I assume these functions define the layout style for the html page output.
I hope joomla developers are reading this. Maybe it's too specific to ask but just wandering if anybody knew..

For a better understand I would recommend to read this article:

And if you are look for a function, use the API site: http://api.joomla.org/
