Questions tagged [menu-item]

In Joomla! Menu Items are used as part of a menu, to create pages, that load a pre-defined type of content determined by the Menu Item Type. Those pages will be accessible by a static URL (menu-item alias), that we can specify while creating the menu item. Menu Items also hold layout and presentation information about the page (e.g. show/hide page titles, images, template options for a page, and more).
