Administrator Components

All components are also used in the administrator area of your website. In addition to the ones listed here, there are components in the administrator that do not have direct front end displays, but do help shape your site. The most important ones for most users are

  • Media Manager
  • Extensions Manager
  • Menu Manager
  • Global Configuration
  • Banners
  • Redirect

 

Media Manager

The media manager component lets you upload and insert images into content throughout your site. Optionally, you can enable the flash uploader which will allow you to to upload multiple images. Help


Extensions Manager

The extensions manager lets you install, update, uninstall and manage all of your extensions. The extensions manager has been extensively redesigned, although the core install and uninstall functionality remains the same as in Joomla! 1.5. Help


Menu Manager

The menu manager lets you create the menus you see displayed on your site. It also allows you to assign modules and template styles to specific menu links. Help


Global Configuration

The global configuration is where the site administrator configures things such as whether search engine friendly urls are enabled, the site meta data (descriptive text used by search engines and indexers) and other functions. For many beginning users simply leaving the settings on default is a good way to begin, although when your site is ready for the public you will want to change the meta data to match its content. Help


Banners

The banners component provides a simple way to display a rotating image in a module and, if you wish to have advertising, a way to track the number of times an image is viewed and clicked. Help



Redirect

The redirect component is used to manage broken links that produce Page Not Found (404) errors. If enabled it will allow you to redirect broken links to specific pages. It can also be used to manage migration related URL changes. Help

History of the New Zealand Association of Switzerland

How it all began

The New Zealand Association of Switzerland was founded back in 1983 by a small group of New Zealanders living in Zurich. Their main motivation was simply to be able to get together with other New Zealanders and reminisce about home. Over the years the club has grown from strength to strength and presently there are over 100 member households in Switzerland.


Our Mission

The New Zealand Association of Switzerland aims to bring together New Zealanders living in all parts of Switzerland. We provide information of interest to New Zealanders through the club newsletter and this website. Social activities such as hiking and skiing weekends, bowling, picnics and pot luck dinners are organised by the committee on a regular basis. There’s a Christmas party and of course an Annual General Meeting once a year. We also seek to help newcomers with contact and information about living in Switzerland.


Where do we live?

All over Switzerland!
