Time for action – create a News category

Time for action – create a News category Your client, CORBA, wants to publish a range of articles on the current club activities on their site; that's what they're all about. How can we categorize these articles the Joomla way? Let's first add a category as a container for these news articles: Navigate to Content | Category Manager. Click on the New button. (Alternatively, you can click on the Content | Category Manager | Add New Category fly-out menu item).The Category Manager: Add A New Articles Category screen opens. In the Title field, type News. Don't worry about the other fields; you can leave them empty for now: Click on Save & Close. A message is displayed (Category successfully saved) and you're taken to the Category Manager screen. The Category Manager shows the results: there's one category, News: What just happened? In Joomla, you create content groups (categories) before you can actually start adding articles and menu links. However, when you add categories in the backend, you'll notice nothing changes on the frontend. To get them to display, we'll add content to the category and create a menu link pointing to the category content later. Add articles to the category Now we come to the core of content management and actually start creating content! We'll make some articles, apply the appropriate formatting, and add images.
