Content administration is at the heart of most of the work an administrator will do on the site. Sections, categories, articles, and media need to be organized, managed, and archived. Since content management is the primary function of the Joomla CMS, the interface has been streamlined and optimized from earlier versions. Most content management will be performed within the Article Manager after the Section Manager and Category Manager have been used to configure the areas where the articles will be filed. The Frontpage Manager provides a shortcut method of seeing all of the content that will be combined for a sort of super category display on the home page of the site. The Media Manager supports uploads and management of media (images, sounds, Flash files, etc.) used within the articles. Finally, the Trash Manager works much like a desktop trashcan as a holding place of trashed content before final deletion.

You ve already used the Article Manager (see Figure 5-6) quite a bit to create both categorized and uncategorized articles (such as the Terms and Condition policy page). The only central feature that hasn t been covered is the archive functionality. Any successful Joomla site will run into the problems caused by an abundance of articles. Even with consistent filing of articles within sections and categories, Joomla can become like an overabundant garden where a profusion of healthy plants may choke the walking path. In this case, the Joomla administrator will need to prune the content on the site so that neither the visitor nor the administrator becomes lost in the chaos. Joomla provides a mechanism to prevent the site from becoming overwhelmed with older content. Pruning is accomplished by the use of the Archive button. When an article is archived, it is no longer generally available on the site, it doesn t take up processing time during a site search, and it won t clutter the query results. If you ever need to return the article to the site, simply view the list of archived items, selecting the desired item, and click the Unarchive button and the document will be restored to general publication.

There are a number of global settings that apply to articles that can be accessed by clicking the Preferences button in the Article Manager. Parameters such as linked titles, author names display, and so on are available in the Edit Configuration window, as shown in Figure 5-7. These options should already be familiar to you from when you created site articles. When an article parameter is set to the Use Global option, the selection in this configuration window is the one that is used for that parameter.

Section and Category Managers
Since you just worked with the Section Manager and Category Manager extensively in the last chapter, a complete review would be largely redundant. These two managers are used to create the filing sections that determine where an article will be displayed. Content is always presented within the section or category where it was filed except when it is set for Frontpage display.
Frontpage Manager
While most of the site content is displayed through menus that access sections and categories, there is one page that is entirely unique: the Frontpage. The Frontpage is the home page of the site, and content from any section, category, or uncategorized article can be displayed there. For that reason, the Frontpage has a dedicated manager, as shown in Figure 5-8. The Frontpage Manager is a catch all that acts in much the same way as the Article Manager. It allows articles to be published, unpublished, reordered, and archived. Think of the Frontpage Manager as a shortcut that acts the same as an Article Manager filter, only it does so for the content that appears on the home page.
