Print this Tutorial
(opens pdf in new window)

The content on your website is created in Articles; if your website has more than just a few pages the Articles which feed these pages will be sorted in Sections and Categories, pill Articles which are not placed in Sections/Categories are stored ‘Uncategorised’.


Login to the Administration section of your website

Select Article Manager

Joomla Article Manager Icon

You will see a list of all the Article in your Website

Click on New (top right of your page)

Joomla New Icon

The main area of your screen will look like this:

Joomla New Article Zoom

Please note: This example has more tools than the standard Joomla 1.5 setup as I have installed the JCE editor
