Joomla! 1.6 continues development of the Joomla Framework and CMS as a powerful and flexible way to bring your vision of the web to reality. With the administrator now fully MVC, the ability to control its look and the management of extensions is now complete.
With Joomla! You can create anything from a simple personal website to a complex ecommerce or social site with millions of visitors.
This section of the sample data provides you with a brief introduction to Joomla! concepts and reference material to help you understand how Joomla! works.
When you not longer need the sample data, you can can simply unpublish the sample data category found within each extension in the site administrator or you may completely delete each item and all of the categories.
If you are an experienced Joomla! 1.5 user, 1.6 will seem very familiar. There are new templates and improved user interfaces, but most functionality is the same. The biggest changes are improved access control (ACL) and nested categories.
