Joomla 1.6 – Where is the Frontpage Manager?

by Elaine on February 16, 2011

The frontpage manager was a key ingredient in the design of a Joomla site because it managed what articles were shown on the front page.   In Joomla 1.5, you were used to seeing the frontpage manager under ‘Content’,’Frontpage Manager’, but guess what, it’s not there anymore.   Yes, I am stating the obvious.   So, where did they move the Frontpage manager to and how can I manage my front page items??

In Joomla 1.6 the ‘Frontpage Manager’ is now renamed to ‘featured articles’. Where to find the featured articles:

1.  Login to your Joomla 1.6 Administrator backend.

2.  Click on ‘Content’, ‘Featured Articles’.

From there you can manage the articles displayed on the front page of your Joomla 1.6 website.   You can unpublish/publish articles, change ordering, archive, check in/check out articles, delete featured articles, or create new featured articles.
