Overview

The Weblinks Manager allows you to manage links to other web sites and organize them into categories.

How to Access

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

Description

The Web Links Manager allows you to add, edit and remove links to other web sites on your Joomla! web site, and organize them into categories. You can then display these links on your site, and optionally let visitors add new links.

  • Status. Published status of the item.
    • Published: The item is published. This is the only state that will allow regular website users to view this item.
    • Unpublished: The item is unpublished.
    • Archived: The item has been archived.
    • Trashed: The item has been sent to the Trash.

  • 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.

List Filters

The List Filters, show above the table on the left and on the right. These filters are controls that let you limit what items show in the manager screen. More than one filter may be entered. In this case, only items that meet all of the filter conditions will show on the list.

Column Filtering

Above the column headers on the right, there are 2 drop down input fields, Sort Table by: (preset to Title ascending) and a number (preset to 20) to display. Help35-Column-Filter-Web-Links-Title-Ascending-DisplayNum-en.png These column sorting input fields shows the current method of sorting applied to the list. Use the drop-down 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-down 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-down field.

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