Joomla! Help Support Warrington Cheshire Manchester Merseyside UKIn a multi-user website where several users are able to sign in and edit content, you may sometimes see a warning message when you want to edit an Article.

The message will state: CHECKED OUT.


Why you see the warning message: CHECKED OUT

The warning message "checked out" means that another user:

  • did not correctly close the Article or other item that they were editing, or
  • they are still editing the item you want to edit.

When an item is 'checked out' then no-one else may edit it until Global Check-in is performed.

You can check-in the Articles (and any other checked-out items) when you select Global Check-in from the System Panel in the Home Dashboard.


How to Check-in Items
