Chapter 9. Customizing the Page

In addition to rendering the output of our extensions, we will often find it beneficial or even necessary to alter the normal flow by redirecting the browser to another page, or by customizing the generated document or page. Using a number of classes and libraries that Joomla! provides we can significantly enhance the user experience.

In this chapter we will discuss topics such as:

  • The application message queue and redirecting the browser
  • Session-level input validation
  • Modifying document properties specifically for our extensions
  • Adding multilingual support to our extensions
  • Adding interactive and user-friendly JavaScript elements to our extensions
