Meta Info:

In addition to the fields below in which to set the Meta Data for this particular Static Content Item, there is also an option within the Global Configuration -> Metadata Tab, to set a web site wide collection of Keywords and Descriptions that are then automatically appended to every Static Content Item. These avoid the necessity of repeating the same entry of words and ensures a minimum set of Meta Data wording is always used.

Description: This field corresponds to the Meta Tags in the Head of an HTML page. Enter a brief description as to the purpose of the Static Content Item. This information is used by some Search Engines which then categorise the page accordingly.

Keywords: Enter a number of Meta Keywords that reflect the substance of the Static Content Item. This information is used by some Search Engines which then categorise the page accordingly. In addition, Keywords are central to the functioning of the Related Items Module.

Link to Menu:

The fields in this Tab will create a Link - Static Content Item Menu Item in the Menu selected.

Select a Menu: Select the Menu, on which the new Link - Static Content Item will be created, from the displayed list of existing Menus in the Front-end of the web site.

Menu Item Name: Enter a name for the new Menu Item. This will be the entry that will be visible within the Menu itself.

Link to Menu Button: Once all the fields above have been satisfactorily completed, click thelink_to_menu_btn Link to Menu button to commit the changes to the system and create the new Menu Item.

note icon NOTE: Using a Link - Static Content Item, Menu Item is the only way that Static Content Items can be displayed in the Front-end of Joomla!. They are not available in Blogs, Tables, or Lists in a standard installation.

Existing Menu Link: If the Static Content Item has previously been linked to an existing Menu the details of this will be displayed in this field. The current change will appear in this field once thelink_to_menu_btn button has been clicked.
