Column Headers

In the table containing the Community Builder lists, you will see different columns with the following headings and definitions:

  • Title. The title of the list that will appear in frontend and backend areas.
  • Description. The description of the list. Typically the description will appear in list views.
  • Published. The publicstion status of the list. This is a toggle icon that will Publish or Unpublish the list.
  • Default. If list is a default list there will be a check-mark in this column.
  • Access Level. The Joomla Access View Level that can view this list.
  • Order. You can order tabs displayed in the same position so that a tab with lower order number appears first.
  • ID. This is a unique identification number for this item assigned automatically by Community Builder. It is used to identify the item internally, and you cannot change this number. When creating a new item, this field displays 0 until you save the new entry, at which point a new ID is assigned to it.



At the top you will see the toolbar:


The functions are:

  • New. Opens the edit screen to create a new list.
