    Content management systems Joomla
    Joomla is a great stand alone content management system, the team of developers are pushing forward with the development and are improving all the time, and as such updates are common, they have updating Joomla in leaps and bounds since 3.7.5 arrived and are now at 3.8.3 most of the updates are centered around security and streamline the system.

    Updating Joomla is as simple as logging into the websites back end and go the updates in the console, even though it is normally safe to apply the Joomla update, you need to take caution if your updates have been left behind, updating from a long outdated Joomla version can cause problems when the new version is installed, so always take a back up before hand.

    There are a few settings in Joomla global configuration that need tweaking when you first instal the content management system, under site settings in global configuration there are some seo settings on the right hand side, you need to set search engine friendly urls to yes which optimize the urls structure for better seo, and set use url rewriting to yes but only when you first rename your htaccess.txt file to .htaccess, if you turn this on with out renaming the txt file you may be denied access to your website.

    In your global configuration settings under system turn on system cache to on conservative caching this will help with your sites speed as the system will cache the pages for a faster website the time for the cache setting is around fifteen minutes, you can also increase your session setting but only a little, if you have to keep on leaving the computer, the default time setting is fifteen minutes if you are away from the pc any longer than this you will be logged out automatically.

    Global configuration under server, there are a few tweaks you can make here aswell, turn on gzip page compression this will compress file output but only if your system supports it, under mail settings turn mailer from php mail to SMTP the php mailer is not that efficient, when you turn on the SMTP you will need to fill in the required email information from your hosting provider.

    Always try to delete any modules that are not published, this keeps the back end clean and uncluttered, make sure you have the global configuration robots tag set to index,follow this sets the entire website to index follow unless otherwise changed in individual menu items or articles etc, with out index,follow your website will not be indexed by google, and try to avoid google indexing your website before your are finished building it.

    When you un publish menu items, modules and components or extensions, and you are sure you will not be needing them again, move them to the trash then empty the trash this action will completely remove them from your website, under system clear the websites cache when you have been attending to your website for any period of time, this removes unused data for a more efficient running system.
