How to use Joomla wrapper

Joomla wrapper is a default component available for Joomla 1.5.x. The Joomla wrapper can be used to add external content to your website.

Here are basic instructions how to use the Joomla wrapper functionality.

Create a menu item that will direct website visitors to the desired content. To do so:

  • Login to the Joomla administrator area -> Menus -> Choose the menu where you would like the new menu item to appear.
  • Click the "New" button.
  • Choose the Wrapper from the Tree list of item types.
  • Enter the desired item name.
  • On the right side of the page put the external content URL in the "Wrapper URL" text box.
  • Then click "Save".

Joomla wrapper will now display the external content in the new menu item for your Joomla website.
