:# ''Global Configuration'' settings in the Article Manager/Parameters section. Settings here only apply if both of the above are set to 'Use Global'.
:Example: The 'Title Linkable' setting in the Article's 'Parameters - Advanced' section is set to 'Use Global'. The Menu Item is an Article Layout, and 'Title Linkable' in the 'Parameters - Component' is 'No'. The Global Configuration 'Title Linkable' is set to 'Yes'. The result will be 'Yes', since the Menu Item overrides the Global Configuration.

* You can add images using either the TinyMCE Insert/Edit Image icon or the Image button below the edit area. For adding new images in an Article, it is easier to use the Image button (below the edit area). This is because it lets you browse to the image file and also lets you upload images. However, for editing an existing image, you need to use the TinyMCE icon. The Image button only supports adding new images.

* 'Read more...' breaks allow you to save space on the Front Page or on any blog layout page by showing just the first portion of an Article. 'Pagebreaks' allow you to provide multi-page navigation for long Articles. You can use both on one Article, if desired. For example, you could put a 'Read more...' break after the first paragraph of a multi-page article, and have Pagebreaks after each page. No page navigation would display on the Front Page until the User selects the 'Read more...' link. At that time, the Article's table of contents would display showing links to every page.

* You can insert a Joomla! Module inside an Article by typing "{loadposition xxx}", where "xxx" is the position entered for the desired Module. Note that the position name must not conflict with a position used by your Joomla! template. It can be any name (e.g., "mymoduleposition1") as long as it matches the position name typed in for the Module. The Menu Assignment for the Module must include the Menu Item where the Article is displayed, and the Plugin called "Content - Load Module" must be enabled (which it is by default). This feature allows you, for example, to insert a Custom HTML Module anywhere in an Article. See [[screen.modules.edit.15|Module Manager - New/Edit]] for information about adding modules.
