6. Creating Killer Content: Adding and Editing Articles

Chapter 6. Creating Killer Content: Adding and Editing Articles Once you have created a framework of categories and subcategories, things can move pretty fast. There's nothing to stop you from creating a content-rich site—whether you want to add a dozen, hundreds, or even thousands of pages. In this chapter, we'll focus on adding and editing articles, the type of content that's essential to most sites. Later, you might want to add other types of content (such as image galleries or forums); we'll deal with those in Chapter 10, Getting the Most out of your Site: Extending Joomla. When creating the example site in Chapter 4, Web Building Basics: Creating a Site in an Hour, you've already seen how you can create a new article using the default settings. You've left all of the extra function buttons and parameters alone. But in real life, you'll probably want more control. You want to make your content look great, add pictures, and specify exactly how to display things and what details to display. Joomla allows you to edit articles and tweak article settings to fit your needs exactly. In this chapter you'll learn: Creating, editing, and formatting articlesSplitting an article into intro text and body textDealing with long articles: splitting them into a series of pagesAdjusting general article settings So let's get it started!
