This project is mainly a project for the Joomla CMS. This Joomla GSoC project aims to improve the workflow regarding creating articles & menu buttons to those articles. In Joomla 1.0 it was possible in the administrator back-end to create a menu link to an article from within the article edit view. In Joomla 3.x to create an article and menu item in the administrator back-end , one have to:
- Create an article. · Go to content. · Go to Articles. · Select New option.
- Create a new menu item to that article. · Select Menu option in the administrator back-end. · Select a Menu from the drop down box. · Select add New menu item. · From the dialogue box select type as Single Article. · Enter the link to the given article. The purpose of this project is to improve the work flow in Joomla. For new users Joomla's work flow can be confusing. In Joomla we could make it easier (especially for new users) to create such menu items to single articles i.e. create a new option in Article Edit view to create a menu item to that article
