Which Forum Should You Post In?

Post by humvee » Sun Nov 04, 2007 12:23 pm

The Following is a general guide on what each of the forums here on the 1.5 Section relates to. 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 a 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 guarentee that you will always get the answer you perhaps want and will therefore need to go to those "individual's" own Web sites for specific help.
Migrating & Updating 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. It DOES NOT include updating or migrating individual Third Party Extensions (Templates, Components, Modules, Plugins, Languages) use the Extensions Forum where these all 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 specialised 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.
Extensions Forum and Child Fora:
for all questions relating to individual Joomla! Plugins, Modules, Components, and enquiries/discussions about Third Party Extensions.
Template Forum and Child Fora:
For all questions relating specifically to the 3 (soon to be 4?) default Joomla! Templates MilkyWay, Beez, and Khepri, as well as general discussions on creating and using Templates in Joomla! and the associated use of CSS & Design, HTML, and Accessibility and Usability issues and questions.
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)
Speed issues, caching, database, and other related topics on how to maintain and improve the performance of your Joomla! installation.

Thank you.
