Sooner or later the time will come when you have to get your hands dirty and do some actual heavy lifting. No, I don’t mean lift your Joomla! website. It’s still code afterall. What I meant is make some hard coded modifications.
You could wait until you have access to an ftp client or you could use what I would simply describe as “an extremely powerful” component to access your files and edit them in real time. If you haven’t used eXtplorer before, you are missing out on a lot. It’s fast, fluid and does not require you to expose your websites ftp settings unlike the built in file manager. What’s more, it comes with a robust code editor with syntax highlighting capabilities.
I could go on but then again, where is the joy in that. Head over to the Extensions Directory and download it today. It’s free.cmsfree downloadjoomlajoomla extensionsweb tools
