The Joomla! CMS Plugin

Click Here to Go to the Intro Page

NOTE: The BMLT plugin does not yet support Joomla 3.0. It supports Joomla 2.5 and below.

The Joomla! BMLT component has just undergone a radical rewrite. All three of the CMS plugins now share a common code base, so they present exactly the same administrative interface as each other.

First, fetch the plugin as a zip file (Don’t unzip it). Then, view this video for installation and activation instructions. Once you have the component and plugins installed, go to the BMLT settings, and read this page for guidance on administering the plugin.

Once the plugin is set up, then read this page to get guidance on how to make the BMLT instances appear in your articles. You can also specify the BMLT component, by adding “?option=com_bmlt” to the main site URL. That will open up a page with the “classic” interactive BMLT display, based on the first (default) settings.

You may also want to look at these pages for ideas and examples. They demonstrate WordPress plugins, but the process is almost exactly the same for Joomla! and Drupal.
