This tutorial assumes you are already logged into your Joomla admin panel.
When more than one administrator is working in the Joomla admin panel, Joomla will lock records that are opened to help prevent conflicts with record commits.
This can prevent one user from overwriting another user’s adds or edits.
To use Global Check-in, first select the Site menu option. Under the Site menu option, look for Maintenence, then across to Global Check-in and click it.
Here you can see if there are items to check-in on the far right.
Select the row or rows that require items to be checked-in by checkmarking those rows. Click on the Check In button.
Let’s view the Article Manager to see the results of our Global Check-in. Select the Content menu option.
Now down to the Article Manager and click it. Here we see how a locked Article appears with a small padlock icon. After using Global Check-in, the small padlock icon is now gone.
Now you know how to use Global Check-in.
