Getting Started

We assume that you have the latest version of Joomla site ready. Please follow the steps below.

Step 1: Install JoomBri Freelance

Once your Joomla site is ready, install the JoomBri Freelance package by following the installation guide.

Step 2: Install Template

We frequently see our members posting in our forum that after installing the package (step 1), the site doesn't look like your JoomBri Demo site. JoomBri Freelance is just a component and it doesn't include any template. The template we have used in our demo site is JoomBri Charm based on YooTheme's Warp Framework.

After installing the template, set it as default template.

Step 3: Create Menus

To create menu items, follow Create Menu Link. The below table shows the list of menu items on our demo site.

Menu Title Menu Item Type Parent Item Other Options
Home Articles ? Featured Articles Menu Item Root
Hire Text Separator Menu Item Root
Post Project Project - Post New Project Hire
Browse Services Service - List of Services Hire
Find Freelancers User - User - List of Users Hire User Group: Freelancer
Show Search: Yes
Work Text Separator Menu Item Root
Browse Projects Project - Search Projects Work
Post Service Service - Post New Service Work
Dashboard User - Dashboard Menu Item Root Access: Registered
Register JoomBri Freelance Home Menu Item Root

Step 4: Position Modules

When you install the package, all the required modules will be installed but will not be published automatically. You need to publish and position them to your liking.
