How to Assign an Article to a Category in Joomla 3.0Written by Brad Markle
After creating your new article category in Joomla 3.0, you can then assign articles to that category. This is a very simple process, and we'll show you just how to do this in today's tutorial.
To move an Article to a different Category in Joomla 3.0:
- Log into your Joomla 3.0 admin dashboard
- In the top menu, click Content and then click Article Manager
- In your list of articles, click on the article title that you want to change the category of
- Next to the Title value, you'll find the Category setting. Use the drop down menu next to category to select a new category, and then click the Save button in the top left of the page.
In our testing, we changed the category for our Test Article 1 article from Uncategorised to Test Articles. You can see in the screenshot to the right how the new category shows when viewing the article.
