How to Edit Your Joomla Website Home Page!

When it comes to managing a website, few things are as pivotal as your home page. It’s the first thing visitors see and often serves as the centrepiece of your site. If you’re using Joomla 5 as your Content Management System (CMS), editing your home page may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the essential steps to easily edit your Joomla website’s home page.

Logging into the Admin Area

Before making any changes, you’ll need to log into the Joomla admin area. Navigate to your website’s login page, usually found at Enter your credentials to access the dashboard.

Understanding Home Page Types

Joomla 5 offers various home page types, from basic articles to feature-rich layouts. Knowing which type you’re working with is crucial for effective editing.

Finding the Parts and Places

To find the elements you need to edit, head over to Extensions > Templates. Here, you’ll see a list of your site’s active templates. Identify the one associated with your home page and click on it to begin editing.

Front-End Editing

Joomla 5 provides a convenient front-end editing feature that allows you to make real-time changes to your website. Simply navigate to the home page, and you’ll see an “Edit” option appear. This enables you to alter content directly without going back to the admin area.

Bonus: Using Multiple Templates

For those who want to spice things up, Joomla 5 allows the use of multiple templates on a single website. You can allocate specific templates to different pages, offering a varied user experience.


Editing your Joomla 5 home page is far from complicated if you know where to look. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced developer, these steps will set you on the right path to customising your website to better suit your needs.

We are running a Joomla website that was several versions down-level, our commercial server service had an issue during a conversion. and we were unable to get into the back-end of our site. Several 'Joomla experts' later it still wasn't fixed. We ran across Revibe Digital and Brett during a Google search and Brett told us he could help us. Brett was true to his word and our website was up and running again. We were amazed at how quickly he fixed the site, it's not easy when you are a half a world away to coordinate passwords and others parameters. Brett also treated us like we were family when it came to the billing for his work. I was blown away at how reasonable his charges were. If you are looking for an extremely competent Software Engineer that knows his product line then look no further. I wholeheartedly recommend you contact Brett at Revibe Digital no matter where in the world you reside. Thank you very much Brett.

Great work! We hired Revibe to finish up a Joomla project begun by another firm that was not going well. With a minimum of direction, they jumped in right away and took care of all outstanding tasks, exactly as we asked for. It was quite a thrill to watch a firm move so quickly and understand what was needed with only two emails of explanation. In addition, pricing was very fair. Our only regret is that we didn't start with Revibe to begin with. Highly recommended!
