How to access

Select Tools --> Global Check-in from the drop-down menu on the Back-end of your Joomla! installation.


Selecting this menu option causes Joomla! to perform a global check-in of all checked out or locked items. It then shows the results of the Global Check-in. This is useful, for example, if an Articles is locked by a User who opened it for editing and never finished the editing session. In this case, other Users are not able to edit this Article. Performing a Global Check-in releases all such items.



Column Headers

  • Database table. The name of the table checked.

  • # of Items. The number of items checked out from the table.

  • Checked in. Whether the items were successfully checked in. A green tick indicates that the table was checked in successfully. A red X indicates that the table was not checked in correctly. An empty column indicates that there were no items to check in.


At the top right you will see the toolbar:


  • Help. Opens this Help Screen.

Quick Tips

  • If an Article or some other content element is locked, do a Global Check-in to unlock it.

  • Make sure no one is busy editing any items before you perform a global check-in. When a Global Check-in is done, all items are checked in, including those currently being edited.
