Overview

The Web Links Category Manager allows you to manage categories that can be used to classify Web Links.

How to Access

Select Components → Weblinks → Categories from the drop-down menu of the Joomla! Administrator Panel, or select the "Categories" link on the Web Links Manager screen.

Description

The Web Links Category Manager is where you can edit existing Web Links Categories and create new ones. Note that Web Links Categories are separate from other Categories, such as Categories for Articles, Banners, News Feeds, and Contacts. From this screen, you can also navigate to the Web Links Manager screen.

Column Headers

In the table containing Categories, these are the different columns as shown below.

Help30-Category-Manager-columns-en.png

Click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value.

  • Ordering. Up-Down ArrowsHelp30-Ordering-colheader-icon.png. User specified ordering, default is order of item creation. When active, drag and drop ordering by 'click and hold' on the bars iconHelp30-Ordering-colheader-grab-bar-icon.png then 'release' in desired position.
  • Checkbox. Check this box to select one or more items. To select all items, check the box in the column heading. Note: Many toolbar actions can work with multiple items.
  • Status. Published Help30-Article-status-featured-published-feature-manager-en.png or Unpublished Help30-Article-status-not-published-feature-manager-en.png are shown. Click on the green check mark or the red circle in the Status column to toggle between Published and Unpublished.
  • Title. The name of the item. You can open the item for editing by clicking on the Title.
  • Access. The viewing Access Level for this item. You can change an item's Access Level by clicking on its Title to open it up for editing.
  • Language. Item's language. If you are not using the multi-language feature of Joomla, default is 'All'.
  • ID. This is a unique identification number for this item assigned automatically by Joomla. It is used to identify the item internally, and you cannot change this number.

Column Filters

Above the column headers on the right, there are 2 drop down input fields, Sort Table by: (preset to Ordering ascending) and a number (preset to 20) to display.

Help30-colheader-Column-filter-order-ascend-number-en.png

These column sorting input fields shows the current method of sorting applied to the table. Use the dropdown field choices and click the column heading name. Alternatively, click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value.

This will also change the value in the drop field to correspond with the column header name. The list will then be sorted in order by that column and a sort icon (up or down arrow) will show next to the column name. Click a second time to reverse the sort, which will change the corresponding drop field.

  • Order (default). Shows ordering of selected column, ascending or descending.
