Deploy Moolah to Your Site

Creating a Joomla E-Commerce Website

Professionals and businesses have been creating sites using Joomla for years now, and you can easily add Moolah to your Joomla website using our Joomla Plugins. Let's take a look at how to add an online check and ecommerce store to your Joomla website.

Install the Moolah Joomla Extensions

The first step to putting a Moolah store into your website is to install the Moolah extensions for Joomla. In recent versions of Joomla, you can install directly from your administrative panel and the “Extension Manager”. Click the “Install From Web” tab and search for ‘Moolah’. Select ‘Moolah E-Commerce’ and click “Install”.

For previous versions of Joomla, you can download the extensions directly from our repository on GitHub, where can find the Joomla and other CMS packages, such as our plugin for WordPress. This install archive can be installed using the “Upload Package File”.

Download the Installation Package

With the extension package installed you are now ready to configure the plugin for use.


Configure the Component

You can access your store directly from within Joomla using the Moolah Component for Joomla. From the administrative console, elect “Moolah E-Commerce” from the “Components” menu. If you already have a Store ID, click the “Options” menu and enter it here. If not, you can easily obtain a Store ID from the Moolah E-Commerce website.

With the component configure, you should now be able to access your store's Management Panel directly from within Joomla, viewing any categories and products that you have created already, or the default ones if this is the first time you are logging in.

Creating a Menu Link

After installing and configuring the component, you can create a menu link so that your store will be shown to your site visitors. A typical store is dynamically deployed to your site using JavaScript, and can be deployed to several pages and sites at the same time. A Menu link will help automate this deployment.

Go to the “Menu Manager” and create a new menu link. Select “Moolah E-Commerce” and “Store View” for the type. Provide a name and then save.

Now, when you access the link from the frontend of the site, you should be able to browse your store's catalog.

You can also link to a specific category or product. In the menu configurations, simply provide the Category or Product ID, and save your changes.

Embedding a Store into an Article

The Moolah E-Commerce Content Plugin for Joomla provides an alternative way for you to embed your store into your site. Using this method, you can place the store within an article, a great way to present a featured product that you wish readers to know about.

First, go to the Joomla Plugin Manager and enable the plugin. By default, Moolah will use the Store ID that you provided in the component options previously, but by editing the plugin parameters you can also provide an alternative Store ID, as well as a unique Category ID and Product ID.

Next, go to the “Article Manager” and insert the special code {moolah} into an article. This will instruct the plugin to load the store into the current article.

<p>Test Moolah</p>
<div id="moolah" >{moolah}</div>

You can also provide overrides to the default values by provide the category and product arguments with the IDs of each.

<p>Test Moolah</p>
<div id="moolah" >{moolah product=3235528}</div>
