Un site propulsé par Joomla!, ou par n'importe quel autre type de CMS, à besoin d'une méthode pour afficher et stocker son contenu de manière logique. La méthode habituelle est d'utiliser les catégories et sous-catégories. Joomla! propose de multiples possibilités pour afficher et utiliser le contenu contrôlé par la catégorisation. Certains types de contenu qui utilisent la catégorisation sont lesarticles (contenu principal des pages web), les bannières, les contacts et les liens web.

Uncategorised is the default category assigned to any and all content types, it is the default category. The uncategorised category is not descriptive and should be used on a as needed basis for content types which do not fall under a specific category.

When creating and assigning categories, you should have a planned structure. As an example, this is one way of how you would categorise several Joomla articles on birds. Create two article categories called "Animals" and "Plants". Under the "Animals" category, you might have sub categories called "Birds" and "Mammals". Under the "Birds" category, you might have 3 articles named "Hawks," "Parrots" and "Sparrows".

The example above could be expanded even more with specific articles on different species of Hawks, Parrots and Sparrows. Start with using an "Animal" top Category. Placing the sub categories "Birds" and "Mammals" are under the Animal category, and then a "Hawks," "Parrots" and "Sparrows" sub category under the "Birds" Sub Category as shown.

  • Animals
    • Birds
      • Hawks
      • Parrots
      • Sparrows
    • Mammals

Now you can create multiple articles in the Hawk, Parrot and Sparrow Categories using the different genus or common names of the specific types of these 3 birds.

Categories are maintained using the Category Manager which can be reached in the Administrator (Back-end) interface by clicking on the Content menu type, then the Category Manager menu item for the type.
