Joomla overview - menu item type
Posted on 2011-09-26
I'm starting with Joomla (1.6) and would appreciate if someone could give, or point me in the direction of, an overview of the menu item types in Joomla. Also to correct me if my understanding of Joomal is incorrect.
As I gather in Joomla to create a page you first of all create a Category and then you can create content in the way of articles that get assigned to a category.
Next you create a menu item to get the category to be associated to.
(thats what I understand Joomla to basically be)
Now the menu type start to confuse me. If I'm just looking to add articles I can look under the articles section.
Currently I just assign all menus as a category blog and have the articles in that category associated to it. Would that be correct to display several articles. are there any other ways, such as picking out lots of single articles from different categories?
