On this page, you are going to see everything that is on your frontpage of your Joomla site. If the items are published, you will see a green checkmark beside that article in the Published column. If the content is not published, there will be a red X instead.
You can see the order of the content by looking in the Order column. You can also change the order of your content by using the green arrows or changing the number in the box.
