If you have banners that you want to add to your Joomla site, continue reading this tutorial. In this tutorial, I will show you where to go to add new banners and I will show you how to add the banners to your Joomla site. You can begin by logging in as the administrator.
Your next step is to hover your mouse over the Components menu and let it expand. Place your mouse on the Banners option and you will see a sub-menu open. In this menu, you will need to click the Banners link. The banners page will then load and you will see the banners that are already on your site. These are banners that are automatically there when you install Joomla. You are now ready to add your own banners.
At the top of your page, on the right side, you will see the New icon. Click that icon and the page will reload with the fields you will need to fill in to add the banner. You do not have to fill in all of these fields, but some are required. Most of the fields are self explanatory, but we will take a look at a few of them to help you out.
The category field is where you select the category you want to place your banner in. Before you add banners to your Joomla site, you will need to create at least one banner category to place your banner in.
The Click URL is where you enter the link for the banner. When a visitor clicks the link, this is where they will be redirected to. The code box is where you enter the HTML code for the banner you are adding to your site.
You can also attach a note to the banner you are adding in the notes field. When you are finished with the fields for the new banner, you can click the Save button. Click the Close button to return to your Banner Manager page.
