Jomatu Wiki: Quick Guide to using Jomatu


This manual presents a very brief guide to using the Jomatu Content Management System. It is intended for those who have some familiarity or experience using content management systems, or those who wish to get editing their website content quickly!

Each section contains a link to more extensive documentation which covers that section.

So let's begin. Firstly, make sure you're logged into your Jomatu Administrator's account and you're at the Jomatu Main Menu.

Step 1: Add your website to Jomatu

To edit your website, Jomatu needs to know about it, and needs access to it. So, with your FTP* credentials to hand, do the following:

  1. Click on the 'Manage Websites' link or icon (from the Main Menu);
  2. Click on the 'Add new website' link or icon;
  3. Fill in the online form, then click the 'Add new website' button;
  4. If there are no errors, you will see a 'New website added successfully' message.

Your website is now successfully defined within Jomatu. For more information on this section, read the full 'How to add a new website' documentation.

Step 2: Edit website content

To edit your website's content, do the following:

  1. Click on the 'Edit website content' link or icon (from the Main Menu). It you only have one website defined on the system, and no additional editors, then you will immediately arrive at the Jomatu Browse Facility;
  2. You will see your website below the Jomatu header section. Use your website's navigation to locate the web page you want to edit;
  3. Click the 'Edit' button in the Jomatu header section. This will take you to the Jomatu Edit Facility;
  4. Make your content changes using the extensive editor facilities;
  5. When finished, click the 'Publish' button in the Jomatu header section - your changes will now be live on your website;
  6. Finally, click the 'Exit' button in the Jomatu header section to return to the Main Menu.

For more information, read the full 'How to edit your website text' and 'How to use the Edit Window' documentation.
