• After you download you can install it from your admin area > Extensions > Install/Uninstall.

• You can then set the newly-installed language as your default language from Extensions > Language Manager. From there, you need to tick the check box near it and then click the Default button placed at the top-right Joomla list of options.

• A section called upload package file appears and that is where you need to browse for the downloaded document and click upload file and install. Now you are done with the installation

How to enable/disable the login form in Joomla 1.5?

Some feel that having a login for any application is a secured feature and would like to have one. This makes sense while using a public or office system. While using a personal system, filling in the login form each time may seem to be annoying for the user. So they may wish to disable this form. This is possible with Joomla.

• Choose admin area > Extensions > Module Manager

• You will find a filter where you can type login and click on Go. Once you do this you will see the login module which you can enable or disable by clicking the check box or leaving the box unchecked.


Doing all these simple steps doesn’t require high technical skills but a little research. This is why Joomla is believed to be a user friendly open source application and used by surplus web developers. The availability of good joomla hosting companies that even provides free joomla hosting services has increased the usage of joomla.
