How to Access

You can access the Article:[New] page either by pressing the 'Add New Article' button on the Control Panel or by clicking the 'New' button on the Article Manager.

You can access the Article:[Edit] page from the Article Manager either by clicking on an Article's Title or by clicking the Article's check box and then clicking the 'Edit' button.

Description

This is the back-end screen where you can add and edit Articles. The same screen is used for adding a new Article and editing an existing Article. You also select the Section and Category for an Article and indicate whether or not it has a Published state or is selected for the Front Page.

The Article's content is edited using the default editor selected in the User Manager - New/Edit. The Joomla! default editor is TinyMCE.

A number of Parameters can be set for the Article. Metadata Information can also be entered.

Dependencies Placeholder

Describe other screens that rely on the presence of this function or that this function relies upon, in order to work correctly for example: a Category depends upon the presence of a Section (up) and it must be in place before a Categorised Article (down) can be created. If there are no Dependencies either up or down for the particular screen just state None but do include the section. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices. It will probably be sufficient to just list these and provide links to the Help Screens relating to the dependency.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.
