If you are just getting started with your Joomla site, you may need help with adding your web links, or you may not even know about the web links section. This tutorial will show you how to add web links to your site using Joomla. If you did not know this section of Joomla existed, you will have to create web link categories before you can add the web links to your site. You will need to create at least one web link category to start adding new web links. If you need help with creating the web link categories, you can see my tutorial on that topic. Simply open my profile and do a search, on my profile for, “Joomla Web Link Categories.”
Opening Your Web Links Section of Joomla
To get started, you can open your Web Links section of Joomla. Login to the admin area of Joomla and place your mouse on the Components menu. When the menu expands, place your mouse on the Web Links option and you will see another menu open. In this menu, click the Links option. You will now be on the Web Links Manager page. This is where you can manage your links and create new links.
Creating a New Web Link in Joomla
Now you are ready to create a new web link on your Joomla site. To do this, you will need to go to the top of the Web Link Manager page and click the New button. The page will reload and you will see the fields you need to fill in to create your first web link category.
Go through the fields and give the link a name, enter the URL, select a category, and enter a description for the Web Link you are creating. When you are ready to create the web link, go to the top of Joomla and click the Save button. Then you can click the Close button to return to your Web Link Manager page. From there, you can create more links if you want too.
