Types of Menu Item

There are many different types of Menu Item (or Menu Link) to choose from when you click on the Select button in the Create New Menu screen.

ARTICLES is the most useful group of menu items when you first start using Joomla!

Within this group there are two very useful Menu Items:

  • SINGLE ARTICLE and
  • CATEGORY BLOG.

We introduce these two Menu Items in this article.
