In Joomla! an Article is a piece of content usually consisting mainly of text, but may contain other resources too (for example, images). An Article is most often regarded as the third level in the hierarchy Sections -> Categories -> Articles. For example, a website might have Sections called "Animals" and "Plants". Within the "Animals" Section, the website might have Categories such as "Birds" and "Mammals". In the "Birds" Category there might be Articles called "Parrots" and "Sparrows" which describe the relevant birds in detail.  However, it is possible to have Uncategorised Articles that exist without being associated with any Section or Category.

In Joomla! an Article is a piece of content consisting of text (HTML), possibly with links to other resources (for example, images). Articles are the basic units of information in the content system and the bottom level in the content hierarchy. Since Joomla! 2.5 Joomla 2.5, each Article is in exactly one Category. A Category can be in another Category making it a sub Category. It is also possible to have Uncategorised Articles. These articles exist without being associated with any Category.

Before Joomla! 2.5 and earlier versions, an Article was the third level in the hierarchy Sections  Categories  Articles. Now an Article is a bottom level and will alway be the second level or greater in hierarchy.

Articles are maintained using the Article Manager (see the Content Article Manager for Joomla 3.3 or the Content Article Manager for Joomla 2.5) which can be reached in the Administrator (Back-end) by clicking on the Content menu, then the Article Manager menu item.
