After clicking on “Add New Article”, a WYISWYG editor will appear which can be used to format new article text, add images & links to it and much more.

After creating the articles in Joomla 3, it’s now the time to link them with the menu of website so that visitors can be able to see it. For this, the process is as follows:

  • Go to Main menu manager
  • Select “Add New Menu Item”
  • Select the “Type of Menu Item”

Now here, you will get several options. But we will select “Single Article” because here the content that is developed via Articles manager is only to be linked and this option ensures that the menu will simply open the article that we have linked.

After selecting this option, there will appear a box for selecting the article that you wish to link to, i.e. this is the article that will appear on the website.

And it’s done; just open your website and you will find your newly created menu item that will show the article link.
