Time for action – move content from one category to another

Time for action – move content from one category to another The Activities main category contains some articles that you might want to move to the News category. Let's clean up the Activities–Meetings category and move anything topical into the News category as follows: Navigate to Content | Article Manager. From the list, select the items you want to move from the Meetings category to the News category. In this example, we've selected one article as shown in the following screenshot: At the bottom of the screen, there's a section called Batch process the selected articles. In the Select Category for Move/Copy drop-down box, select the target category, News. Click Process as shown in the following screenshot: A message is displayed: Batch process completed successfully. In the Article Manager screen, the selected article is now part of the News category: What just happened? You've understood the real life challenge of content management! Now you're not only able to create a sound content structure for your website, but you also know how to improve on it. You can move any amount of existing content to another category. Have a go hero—moving entire categories Sometimes you might want to move an entire subcategory and all of its contents to another main category. Try this out for yourself—it's not much different from moving articles. Imagine you'd like to move the Reviews subcategory from the Bad Art main category to another main category. In the Category Manager, select the category you want to move. In the Batch process the selected articles section at the bottom of the screen, there's a Select Category for Move/Copy drop-down box where you can select the target category. Click Process to move the category to its new main category. It's just as straightforward to move the entire category—including all of its article contents—back again. This flexibility is great when you're setting up or restructuring your site. Renaming categories As we've just seen, Joomla allows you to easily rearrange your site structure and its contents. You can also rename categories that already contain articles; no content will be lost.
