I still didn’t present the details of the changes in Joomla 1.5 to my readers yet. Joomla 1.5 is undoubtedly far better and stable than its former Joomla 1.0. However it is important that I tell my fellow website developers about the changes that actually made Joomla 1.5 so good.

To start with, I’ll discuss the change that I most obvious as soon as you open up you content managements system. The Interface. The website interface in Joomla 1.5 is far more improved than Joomla 1.0. It is more usable and has thus help improve the website administration process greatly.

Website Administration in Joomla 1.5 is something totally new when compared with 1.0. Due to the regrouped extensions administration has become more fun and less complex. The installer and uninstallers are unifies in this version of Joomla. It would have been easier to understand if I could supply you an image of what I want to say. I’ll do that sooner though I am sure my fellow readers must have understood what I want to say.

The other great change is that in Joomla 1.5 implementing parameters in templates is as easy and similar as of adding modules. The templates have been revised in such a manner that adding parameters is not a big deal now. The best thing is that all parameters and operatrions related to them are available at one place in the parameter template. They all can be viewed at one place. You can make the necessary changes; apply them on your WebPages and save it directly from one place.

The CSS templates can now be completely edited with the Joomla 1.5. This was not possible earlier with 1.0 as one could only use the multiple CSS file and could not edit it. But Joomla 1.5 allows you to do so and customize all the CSS files used by the templates according to your own personal requirements.

The word Mambot has now been replaced forever by Plug-ins. Sounds more techno to the ear but is the same thing! Plug-ins of course, does come with additional functionalities than Mambots. The Plug-in manager have all the available Plug-ins listed and categorized for you to choose from.
