Features such as infinitely nestable categories are substituted in place of the sections; the Power Access Control List and enhanced interface of the admin layout have been closely watched by the Joomla developers.

With the newly enhanced tools in Joomla 1.7 and 1.6 the Joomla developer does not have to engage in tedious tasks of altering the code or editing modules to execute a simple task of uploading and setting a background image to custom HTML modules. When a Joomla programmer wants to have a simple background image for a single module in a website and not for the whole website and other modules present then the programmer can use this option to easily add a background image.

Enabling Customized Background Image

In the Basic Options menu parameters for custom HTML module we can find a background image selection field in which a new image can be uploaded to the database from where the required image can be chosen.

The Joomla core files or the added extensions can be upgraded using the new extension manager in Joomla 1.7 which has an Update tab which displays a list of available updates which the Joomla developers and Joomla programmers can browse through, download and install instantaneously. This is simpler for the Joomla developers from the processes they used to perform in the earlier versions of Joomla where extensions had to be upgraded independently which had further steps.

Joomla Enables Easy Promotion

Most clients want their site to be promoted very intensely once their site is built and to satisfy their requirements and needs the Joomla programmers have to toil hard not just for developing the project but also to place details of the websites in trivial places to promote it cleverly.

To help such Joomla programmers the new version of Joomla has integrated a tool which enables the Joomla developers to make the website’s name appear in the page title, which is present on the top of most web browsers. This can be done with minimal effort and within a few clicks. And if the webiste’s company has keywords in it then the Joomla developer will concentrate mainly on this aspect and this tool in the new Joomla makes it very simple for the Joomla programmer to optimize the website’s place in a search engine.

Easier Control over Modules

In the menu assignment drop down in the Module analyzing section there is an option to assign attributes for each and every module that is present in the website. The options available in the attributes settings enables the Joomla developers to decide in which page a certain modules should be present and if a Joomla developer does not need a certain module in a certain page then that option can also be enabled.

Such enhancements over the older version of Joomla have enable the Joomla developers to upgrade to the new versions.
