How to create a Joomla! component

  • Your first decision is to choose the Joomla version for your component: 3.x or 2.5
  • Note that 2.5 components are also compatible with 1.6 and 1.7 versions.
  • Once you decided on which version of Joomla to use, the next step is to create the structure of your component: tables and fields. You have 3 options:
  1. Create a new table from scratch
  2. Copy an existing structure with SQL Import
  3. Create an empty view
