Category Blog Menu Item (Joomla 3)

A Category Blog menu item type is similar to a Featured Article menu item type. Both will display articles that are saved into individual categories, with one main difference: a Featured Articles menu item type will display articles from multiple categories but a Category Blog will only pull articles from one category. This article explains how to create a Category Blog menu item type.

Before creating the Category Blog, you should create a separate category and save the articles that you'd like to display into that category. It may be helpful to name the Category "Blogs"; that way, you'll be able to identify it easily when you create your menu item. After the content is ready to go, open the Menu Manager. Open the menu where you'd like to create the Category Blog and then select the "New" button in the toolbar to create a new menu item.
