Introduction to News

This article sketches the use of a Joomla "Category Blog" to deliver news items to website visitors. There are many selectable options and the template is fairly easily modifed so you can deliver your information almost any way you want.

One good approach, good because it doesn't cost much at first, is to goof around with the available options and formats until what you want to accomplish and want material you might want to include becomes clear, and then to make template modifications, if necessary, to deliver that information in an appreling manner.

These saqmple articles can be edited under the Articles tab -- filter just the News items using the "Category" drop-down. To add a new Article to the news section, just create a new article with the category "News". The new article will show up at the bottom of the page -- that order can be changes anytime.

There is gibberish after the "read more" link -- this is just to show you what it does.
