Mambot Manager: New (or Edit)

Description:

The Site Mambots: New (or Edit) function provides the opportunity to create a new (custom) Mambot, for the Front-end of the web site, directly within Joomla! and without the need for programming skills or knowledge of the Joomla! code.

The Custom Mambot is not suited to complex functions and it is better for these to be created externally within an editor and packaged as necessary for uploading via the Mambot Installer.

Toolbar:

  save_apply_close_helpcancel_icon_tb

Save: Click Save to save any changes made during the current editing session, and return to the Mambot Manager screen.

Apply: Click Apply to save any changes made so far in the current session, but remain in the Mambot screen to continue editing. If the current action was creating a new Mambot it will now have been saved, and will appear on the Mambot Manager list. In addition, the current session now becomes an Edit action rather than the Add action it was previously. Once the editing session is complete click Save as above.

Close: Click Close at any point to end the current editing session and return to the Mambot Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced, or since the last time Apply was clicked, will be lost.

Help: Click the Help icon at any time to view this Help Screen.

Cancel: Clicking Cancel at any point ends the current creation session and returns the display to the Mambot Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced will be lost and the new Mambot will not have been created.

Details:

Name: Enter a name for the Mambot. The name is used by the Mambot Manager to identify it in its display list of all Mambots.

Folder: Select one of the five Mambot classifications, from the drop down list, that this Mambot is to be assigned to. Once selected, and the Mambot is saved for the first time, this field is not editable.

Mambot file: Enter the name of the .php file, within the joomla_root/mambots directory, that this Mambot is created from.

Mambot Order: This function allows the position for this Mambot in the order of all Mambots to be set within the Mambot Manager.This function becomes active once a Mambot is saved for the first time. By default the new Mambot will be added to the end of the order for that particular classification (Folder) of Mambot

Select the position where this Mambot is required to be placed, from the drop down list of all installed Mambots. The current Mambot at that position will shift down a position upon saving. The order can also be changed directly within the Mambot Manager.

Access Level: Identify which User Group level can view/utilise this Mambot. Select from Public, Registered, or Special. See User Access Levels for further details on these.

Published: Select No or Yes to set whether the Mambot is Published.

Description: Enter a description of the Mambot that explains its function in the open text field. The text will be displayed within the Administrator Back-end only and is for future reference purposes.
