Demo Site

Simple but effective: If you are running a demo-site, this plugin is able to show a little notice on all your pages - both frontend as backend.

The Demo Site plugin displays a simple notice to visitors in either Joomla! frontend or Joomla! Administrator - something very simple, that is actually very helpful if you're putting up a lot of different demo-websites.

When you put a demo-site live, you need to consider various things. Ofcourse the security aspect is vital: You need to make sure users can only access those parts of Joomla! that are vital, protecting other parts. One high risk is that you leave open the Joomla! Media Manager - a hacker could easily misuse this by uploading various scripts.


This plugin - as of yet - only offers a simple message that is displayed on the top of the screen. However, our goal is to add more security countermeasures as well to this plugin.


  1. To install this plugin, download it from the download-section on this site to your computer.
  2. Then install the ZIP file from within the Joomla! Administrator as a regular extension.
  3. Next go to the Plugin Manager to enable this system-plugin. It is listed as "System - Demo".


The message-text can be modified through the plugin parameters within the Joomla! backend. If you want to modify the CSS-code involved, you can either override the CSS in your own template-files or add a new CSS-override file:
