Before Joomla! 1.5, the so called Mambo-Joomla connection version, there were two separate process of creating a content item.
Remember the two Types of Content Items for the “Mambo-Joomla connection version? They were known as Static Content Item usually used for About Us and the “Duh” Content Item which is associated with Sections and Categories …
- Create a Static Content Item? (About us | Mission Vision | Permanent Information
- Create “Duh!” Content Item? (Ever changing contents, company updates)
With Joomla 1.5, the two entities have been combined. No more Static and no more “Duh” Content Item.
But wait! according to the default article included in my Joomla! 1.5 installation,
“both content types are still around they are renamed as Articles for Content Items and Uncategorized Articles for Static Content Items.”
so, how can I create a Static Content Item in Joomla 1.5!?
“if you want to create a static item, create a new Article and select Uncategorized as the option in the Section and Category drop down lists.”
