After you have creating your first article, you can set it as a featured article so you can see it on your Joomla 3.0 homepage. The steps below will show you how to set an article as featured after you have already published, but you can just as easily make this change while you are initially writing the article.

To feature an article in Joomla 3.0:

  1. Log into your Joomla 3.0 admin dashboard
  2. In the top menu, click Content and then click Article Manager
  3. From here you can:

    Open the article for edit Click the Featured star
    In the list of articles, click the article title that you would like to edit. In the right menu, under Details, set Featured to Yes. Then click Save in the top left menu.
    In the list of articles, find the icon of a star (under the Featured column) and click it. The star will change from hollow to a blue star.

  4. When you visit your Joomla 3.0 homepage now, you should see your featured article display!
