The Web Links Category Manager allows you to manage categories that can be used to classify Web Links.

How to Access

Select Components → Weblinks → Categories from the drop-down menu of the Joomla! Administrator Panel, or select the "Categories" link on the Web Links Manager screen.


The Web Links Category Manager is where you can edit existing Web Links Categories and create new ones. Note that Web Links Categories are separate from other Categories, such as Categories for Articles, Banners, News Feeds, and Contacts. From this screen, you can also navigate to the Web Links Manager screen.

For example, "ooml" will match all titles with the word "Joomla!" in them. Click 'Clear' to reset filtering.
