Joomla - how to create such a layout?


I have Joomla 1.7

I need to create a help system which looks like the following picture:

On left hand side every row is a link of an article. The left side should be always visible.
The articles should be grouped under each other as in the example.

In the middle there is the open article the user clicked on.
It would be nice if the last clicked article at left was highlighted.

Thank you

Hi, here's one possible solution:

1. Create a menu for the items on the right.
2. In the module for the menu, set "Show Sub-items" to 'Yes'

Set this option to "Yes"
This way, all menu items will always be visible and you'll receive the result you want. Of course you'll need to tweak the CSS a bit so the menu looks exactly like you want.
