I'm a newbie to Joomla 3 and I have installed it on my PC using Wamp 2.5. I published an article, but the article is not showing on the website. What is the problem and how do I fix it?
Articles in Joomla are usually displayed through Menu Items. Creating and publishing an article is only the first step, you also have to create a menu item:
These are some of the most popular menu types:
Articles → Featured Articles
This will show all your featured articles (marked with a star in the article list).
Articles → Single article
This will let you choose a single article which will be displayed on your website for the menu item.
Articles → Category blog
This will display all articles from a chosen category. If the articles has a Readmore tag (inserted using the Read more button below the article editor), only the first part of each article will be displayed, followed by a link to the full article. This is the simplest way to create a blog in Joomla.
