Park Site

Cradle Park Banner

Welcome!

This is a basic site about the beautiful and fascinating parks of Australia.

On this site you can read all about my travels to different parks, see photos, and find links to park websites.

This sample site is an example of using the core of Joomla! to create a basic website, whether a "brochure site,"  a personal blog, or as a way to present information on a topic you are interested in.

Read more about the site in the About Parks module.

 

Lorem Ipsum is filler text that is commonly used by designers before the content for a new site is ready.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed faucibus purus vitae diam posuere nec eleifend elit dictum. Aenean sit amet erat purus, id fermentum lorem. Integer elementum tristique lectus, non posuere quam pretium sed. Quisque scelerisque erat at urna condimentum euismod. Fusce vestibulum facilisis est, a accumsan massa aliquam in. In auctor interdum mauris a luctus. Morbi euismod tempor dapibus. Duis dapibus posuere quam. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. In eu est nec erat sollicitudin hendrerit. Pellentesque sed turpis nunc, sit amet laoreet velit. Praesent vulputate semper nulla nec varius. Aenean aliquam, justo at blandit sodales, mauris leo viverra orci, sed sodales mauris orci vitae magna.

Lorem Ipsum is text that is traditionally used by designers when working on a site before the content is ready.

Pellentesque bibendum metus ut dolor fermentum ut pulvinar tortor hendrerit. Nam vel odio vel diam tempus iaculis in non urna. Curabitur scelerisque, nunc id interdum vestibulum, felis elit luctus dui, ac dapibus tellus mauris tempus augue. Duis congue facilisis lobortis. Phasellus neque erat, tincidunt non lacinia sit amet, rutrum vitae nunc. Sed placerat lacinia fermentum. Integer justo sem, cursus id tristique eget, accumsan vel sapien. Curabitur ipsum neque, elementum vel vestibulum ut, lobortis a nisl. Fusce malesuada mollis purus consectetur auctor. Morbi tellus nunc, dapibus sit amet rutrum vel, laoreet quis mauris. Aenean nec sem nec purus bibendum venenatis. Mauris auctor commodo libero, in adipiscing dui adipiscing eu. Praesent eget orci ac nunc sodales varius.

Subcategories

Here is where I will blog all about the parks of Australia.

You can make a blog on your website by creating a category to write you blog posts in (this one is called Park Blog). Each blog post will be an article in that category. If you make a category blog menu link with 1 column it will look like this page, if you display the category description (this part) displayed.

To enhance your blog you may want to add  extensions for comments, interacting with social network sites, tagging, and keeping in contact with your readers.   You will also enable the syndication that is included in Joomla! (in the Integration Options set Show Feed Link to Show an make sure to display the syndication module on the page).

These are my photos from parks I have visited (I didn't take them, they are all from Wikimedia Commons).

This shows you how to make a simple image gallery using articles in com_content.

In each article put a thumbnail image before a "readmore" and the full size image after it. Set the article to Show Intro Text: Hide.
