Not sure if I'm in the right area but I'm creating a site with Joomla! 1.5.

Within a particular article, I need to link some text to another article within my site. How is this done?

    Like in a word processor highlight your text and click the link button (pic of chain) on top of the text box. Insert the url in the window that pops up.

    Create a menu not displayed.
    Create a link in this menu and use it after in your article.

    That's all

    I hope it helps.

    You could also download and install a Joomla extension called Linkr.

    There are 3 files to download and install and two plug-ins to be enabled. It will place a button at the bottom of your article window. When pressed it will guide you to the internal link you require.
