In our previous article, we created a new Joomla 2.5 Menu called "My First Menu". We've also previously created a new article called Test Article 1. In this tutorial, we will show you how to add a link to an Article in a Joomla 2.5 menu using our test article.

To add an Article menu type to a menu:

  1. Log into your Joomla Dashboard
  2. In the top menu under Menus, hover over the menu you would like to add a new menu item to and then click Add New Menu Item
    click-add-new-menu-item
  3. Click Select next to Menu Item Type, and then click Single Article
    select-single-article
  4. Type in a Title for the Menu Item
    type-in-a-menu-title
  5. Next to Select Article, click Select / Change.
    click-select-change
  6. Use the Filter feature to find your article, and then click on the article title
    click-on-article-title
  7. Click Save & close.
    click-save-and-close

When you create a new menu in Joomla 2.5, it will not show on your website until you add your first menu item to it. Now that we have added our first menu item, the menu will now show on our website.
