Joomla 1.7 – Choose Categories in Featured Articles Menu Item

There was a bug in the Menu Manager in Joomla 1.6 and now fixed in Joomla 1.7.   In Joomla 1.6 when you selected “featured articles” as the Menu Item Type, the option to select categories was not there.  The description of the “featured articles” menu type is:

Show all featured articles from one or multiple categories in a single or multi-column layout.

Now in Joomla 1.7 there is a New Feature to select categories when you are in the Menu Manager and create a Menu Item Type = Featured Articles.  Steps to create a Featured Article Menu Item:

1.  Login to your Joomla 1.7 administrator backend

2.  Click on Menus, Main Menu, Add New Menu Item

3.  Menu Item Type = Featured Articles

4.  Select categories

5.  Click on Save & Close

Joomla 1.7 Featured Articles Menu Type can choose categories
Joomla 1.7 Featured Articles Menu Type can choose categories

Thanks,

Elaine
