When writing content on the web, it's natural to link to other content that you've written. If you have two similar articles, linking them to each other helps your readers find potentially more content on your site that they would like to read. This article doesn't need too much of an introduction, it's a basic concept, so let's get right into the training!

How to create a link to another article in Joomla 3.0

  1. Log into your Joomla 3.0 Dashboard
  2. Open the Article that you want to place the link into

    In the top menu, click Content and then click Article Manager
    In the list of articles on the page, click the article you want to edit.
  3. Within the article editor, click to place the cursor where you want the link to be added
  4. click-article-to-add-a-linkUnder the editor, click the Article button (refer to the screenshot to the right)
  5. Another window will open. Find the article you want to link to, and click on it.
  6. Joomla will insert a link to the article, and the anchor text (the actual text of the link) will be the article's title. Most likely you'll want to change this, and you can do this by simply changing the text within the editor.

    When finished, click the Save button at the top left of the page.

I've used the process described in this article. Now some of the URLs obtained this way (accessible via the link created by Joomla), include Itemids while some of them don't. The problem is when you click on the links with Itemid (in the front end), Joomla will display the modules assigned only to the home page, instead of the contents of the linked page.

Hello Flintstone,

Thanks for the feedback and sorry to hear you've had problems with the linking. With Joomla 3.x, I have found that you can use "a href" tag to link to the article as long as you know the URL of the published Joomla article. You can also create anchor tags in code (or with the editor if you're using an editor in Joomla) to reference a specific area within your article.

I hope that helps to clarify and resolve your issue! Please let us know if you have any further questions or comments.

Arnel C.
