Joomla! And Cart32
Posted by Matt Marler on 16 September 2010 01:32 PM
Overview

Joomla is a very powerful content management system (CMS) that is free of charge and simple to use. It gives the ability to create fantastic looking websites to web developers and non-developers alike. Because of this, Joomla has become the most popular website software available. Joomla’s framework is written in PHP and is entirely open source as well.

Are you a Developer with a Client that uses Cart32?

If so, Joomla might be the perfect solution for you and your client. Joomla is very easy to use which allows for websites to be developed very quickly. With a small amount of guidance, your client can be instructed on how to manage content on their website with only a few clicks of the mouse! This is perfect for e-commerce applications as they can add their own products, product descriptions, pictures and everything else on their own. To make it even easier, Cart32 has developed a Joomla component that integrates Cart32 and Joomla!

Cart32’s Joomla! Component

The Cart32 Joomla component gives full control of the Cart32 administration from within the Joomla administration. This allows for total control of the website as well as total control of Cart32 all from within Joomla. This is great for managing your website as everything is in one place!

Installing components in Joomla is a breeze! Please follow these steps to get the component installed:
