Advanced Article Options in Joomla

In this guide, I will show you how to do the more advance things with articles in Joomla. This guide is going to show you how to insert images into your articles, add page breaks, and add a read more option. To get started with this Joomla guide, you can load an article you are working on or you can create a new article to practice with. The article will need to be opened in order to use this guide.


Inserting Images into Articles in Joomla

We will begin with inserting images into your articles in Joomla. To do this, you will first need to place your mouse where you want the image to go. Then you will need to scroll to the end of the article box and click the Image button. That will open an image box and you can use the images in the box, or you can upload your own.

In the box, you will see the images that are already on your Joomla site in the top part of the box. If you want to use one of these images, you can click the image and fill in the information in the fields below it. The fields are not required, so it is up to you if you fill them in or not. When you are ready to insert the image, click the Insert button in the top, left corner of your box.

If you want to use your own image, you will need to click the Browse button at the bottom of the box. Find and click the image you want to use. Then click the Start Upload button. Once the image is uploaded, select it and click the Insert button. When you are finished, click the X in the top, right corner of the box.

Inserting Page Breaks in Articles in Joomla

A page break will split your article into more than one page. If you want to use a page break, place your mouse in the spot you want the new page to be created. Then go to the bottom of the article box and click the Page Break button. You can then enter a page title in the box that opens and click Insert Page Break button. The page break will then be inserted.

Inserting a Read More Link in Joomla

To insert a read more link, you will need to place your mouse where you want this read more link to go. Then go to the bottom of the box and click the Read More button. The read more option will then be inserted where your mouse was.
