Be aware of the Dark Mode for Administrator feature in Joomla! 5
OK, not really a tip. More a heads up.
The Joomla! 5 CMS has improved the experience of administrators who like using Dark Mode in their web browser.
Now when Dark Mode is enabled in your browser settings, the Dashboard display will automatically match your preference when you log in.
Hitherto this did not happen. regardless of your preference you got Light Mode.
Now the Dashboard will respond to your browser preference, courtesy of the new improved Dashboard Template (Atum).
Result: a more comfortable experience for everyone whatever their preference.
Periodically update the Smart Search Index
It you are using the Smart Search Component in your website then it is a good idea to periodically update the Smart Search Index.
In other words, bring the Index up to speed with all the changes you have made since the last time you indexed your website's content.
This is easy to do.
Use the Joomla! CMS Guided Tours Feature
It's not easy when you first start getting to grips with creating website content in a Joomla! CMS website, despite the plethora of user guides, including the ones included in this website.
There is a lot to think about.
And maybe too many buttons to press!
Sometimes you just can't seem to see the proverbial wood for the trees - even when you are an experienced user.
So this great new feature introduced with the launch of Joomla! 4.3 is a massive boon, offering the potential for the future creation of lots and lots of useful Guided Tours.
