links-with-no-menu-itemSometimes, you might want to create a Joomla page that is not available through a menu. You only want the page to appear when the URL is entered. This might be a 'thank you' page after form submission, a log in page or some other type of 'hidden' page you would need on your Joomla site.

Many users ask about this in the Joomla forums and on Twitter. I decided to write a short tutorial on how to set up a link to an element - article or other type of Joomla assett - with no menu item visible on the site.

If you're a blogger using Joomla, one of the main things you should be concerned about is reducing your time spent on each post. At least the time it takes to publish small bits of information with your own thoughts mixed in.

For this purpose, a blog editor like ScribeFire, which installs as an extension to Firefox, or the built-in blog editor of the Flock browser, may be of great help. However, to get it up and running with Joomla you need to install a few things and do some configuration changes. I'll show you exactly how.

The addition of Search Friendly (SEF) URLs will add greatly to your site in terms of search engine visibility.

In this tutorial, I show you how to set up one of the most popular SEF extensions for Joomla - sh404SEF.

My favorite SEF extension for Joomla is sh404SEF. I have tried a few other extensions as well, but sh404SEF is the one I'm comfortable with and which best seems to meet my requirements. This tutorial will help you duplicate the setup I use here at Joomlablogger.net.

A favicon is a small 16x16 pixel icon that shows up in the browser address bar and in bookmarks to a site. You can see an example of this here at JoomlaBlogger.net.

Here, I'll show you how to create and implement a favicon on your Joomla site.
