How Do I Put Several Articles in One Page in Joomla?


Joomla offers website administrators several ways of displaying articles on website pages. You can put one article on each page or several articles together. The Joomla menu system displays articles when a menu item is selected by a site visitor, and how it displays the articles depends on how the menu option was created by the administrator. The two main ways to display multiple articles on the same page are chosen when the menu item is created.

  • Point the mouse at the Joomla "Menus" option in the administrator control panel. Select the name of the menu in which to place the new menu item for displaying all the articles in a particular category.

  • Click on the "New" icon in the Menu Item Manager menu. The menu item type selection tree will display. Click on the "Articles" link to expand the tree.

  • Select "Category Blog Layout" or "Section Blog Layout" from the expanded Articles tree list. The New Menu Item form will be displayed.

  • Type a name in the "Title" field. This name will display on the menu. On the right side under the "Parameters" section, select the "Category" or "Section" name from the drop-down list.

  • Select "Save" from the Menu Item Manager menu. The new menu item will be displayed. Click on the "Preview" link above the Menu Item Manager menu. Select the new menu item just created from the menu. All the articles in the section or category chosen for the new menu item will be displayed.

Tips & Warnings

  • The creation of Sections and Categories within each Section are crucial elements for displaying more than one article on a page. You must also assign the articles to the sections and categories when the article is created. The basic sections and categories Joomla offers is somewhat limited, but additional components offered by developers -- many of them for free -- extend the functionality of sections and categories.
