I'm from the old world of pages linked by menus. I have trouble understanding how Joomla menus "create pages" and I actually don't understand Joomla menus at all.

I am looking for an article about HOW Joomla menus work. I am looking for understanding and NOT really a how-to screenshot article about creating them.

Can you possibly suggest something? (I have read all the basic stuff nd still don't grock the concept.)

Hello rchorsch,

Thank you for your question. In Joomla, you can have a Menu item that points to an Article, or a menu that points to a category.

Those links were taken from Joomla's official documentation site, which is a helpful source for Joomla developers.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
