In this tutorial we review the Article Manager in Joomla and what it offers. The script is designed as a CMS (Content Management System) and it helps you create a large number of different content, such as articles. With Joomla this is easy and we will show you what you can do with the Article Manager on your website.
To access the Article Manager, you need to log into your website as administrator. Navigate to the Content tab and then Article Manager.
Once you access the Article Manager, you can edit all articles on your website the way you like. Let us teach you how to create a new article first. Start by clicking on the New button at the top-left corner of the screen.
Edit the following options:
When you are ready with your new article, simply click on the Save & Close button to create it.
You can also edit already existing articles on your website. To do so, access the Article Manager, tick the checkbox next to the article you want to modify and click on the Edit button at the top.
From the new panel, you will be able to edit all options for that article the same way as when you are first creating it.
Click on the Save & Close button to keep the changes.
To make an article visible for your readers on the front-end of your website, you need to access the Article Manager, tick the checkbox next to the article and click on the Publish button at the top.
In order to unpublish an article, or make it invisible on the fron-end of your website, just access the Article Manager, select the checkbox next to the article that you wish to unpublish and click the Unpublish button at the top.
If you would like to remove an article from your website, we suggest you unpublish it first. Then, if it is no longer needed, you can proceed further by deleting it. To do so, access the Article Manager, select the checkbox next to your article and click on the Trash button at the top.
Note that your content will still be available for re-use in your Trash and you can restore it at a later point and re-edit or publish it. On the other hand, if you want to permanently delete an article, just empty the Trash.
