Columns:

#: This is simply an indexing number automatically inserted by Joomla! for ease of reference. It has no particular bearing on the use of the Static Content Manager.

Check Box: The column of check boxes are the means by which individual Static Content Items are selected before clicking the one of the appropriate icons in the Toolbar. Multiple check boxes can also be selected for certain functions - Publish, Unpublish, and Trash. Static Content Items can be individually opened, for editing purposes, by clicking on the Static Content Item Title.

Super Administrators can click the menu=>System=>Global Checkin function.

  • The publish_g Published icon identifies that a Static Content Item is published. Clicking this icon will unpublish the Static Content Item.
  • The publish_x Unpublished icon identifies that a Static Content Item is unpublished. Clicking this icon will publish the Static Content Item.
  • The Finished Pending icon identifies that a Static Content Item has been approved for publication at the Start Publishing time and date set within the Publishing Tab options of the Static Content Item. Clicking this icon will unpublish the Static Content Item.
  • The Finished Expired icon identifies that a Static Content Item is published but that it has reached the Finish Publishing time and date as set in the Publishing Tab options of the Static Content Item. Clicking this icon will unpublish the Static Content Item.

Author: This column shows the Author of the Static Content Item as set in the Publishing Tab options of the Static Content Item. By default it will display the name in the Author Alias field. However, if there is no entry in this field, it will use the name in the Change Creator field instead.

Date: This column shows the Creation Date (or Overridden Creation Date) as set in the Publishing Tab options of the Static Content Item.

The Status Icon definitions appear at the base of the Content Item Manager display table. They have no functionality and are an aide memoir only.
