Joomla is an open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS.
Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques (since version 1.5) and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL (since version 2.5), or PostgreSQL (since version 3.0) database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.
Templates are quite simply, a set of files that determine the look and feel of your Joomla-powered website. Templates generally include information about the general layout of the site and other content like graphics, headers, logos and footers. Templates do not include Joomla demo content and articles.
Components are a core element of Joomla. Components are displayed in a Joomla-powered website’s main body position as defined by the template’s developer. Joomla is preloaded with a few core components (banners, contacts, news feeds, etc.) but 3rd party Joomla components are widely developed and implemented by Joomla community members.
Modules are a block of code that pulls information from your website’s database or from Joomla components. Modules can be placed in any predefined module position included with a Joomla template.
Plugins are a small, but important block of code that manipulates a default Joomla function before it’s displayed. Joomla plugins are generally created by 3rd party developers and are widely used to extend and customize the end-user experience.
