    I am new to Joomla and I am trying to find a page in the file system that I made with Joomla but I cant find where that page is on the file system so I can edit it and add some php code to it.

    Hi,

    Joomla is a CMS system and the pages (artcles) are driven from the database attached to the installation. If you want to amend a page you need to do so via the article manager in the admin area of the site.

    If you want to add php or any other source code to a page you'll need to install a plugin such as sourcer from the NoNumbers dev team which will allow you to embed your own custom php within a page.

    Hey,

    If you install extplorer to your site (search in the joomla extensions directory) you will be able to access the files of your site. Your pages are not here, however, as they are only stored in your database so you do not edit the php in individual files rather in the template itself. In your filing system for the site, search for template and then the template you have set as the default. Within this folder is the php file and the css file which manages the layout of the overall template.

    Hope that helps - message me if you need more.

    Recommend using JCE for your editor...seems not to mess with added code as much as TinyEdit does. Also use Jumi to add more involved code.

    Joomla pages are not files, they are dynamically created by the CMS. What kind of joomla page are you looking for?
