Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
What's a content management system (CMS)?
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

PXM Vertical Scrolling Areas is a Joomla! 2.5 plugin which adds 2 trigger areas to your browser to automate the scrolling up and down of the page. Hovering these areas with your mouse you'll see the page “magically” scroll up or down.
The scrolling of the page is progressive and slows down toward the end of the page itself. Neverteless the average speed of the scrolling can be customized to your needs.
It is also possible to style the trigger areas using CSS in order, for instance, to change the arrow style or highlight the entire area with a shaded background.
