Joomla: Sections, Categories and Content items

Given that I’m looking to transfer a relatively large site with hundreds of pages, getting multiple levels of navigation to work clearly – and be easy to manage – is a key part of what I need to achieve.

It hasn’t appeared obvious to date, but tonight I think I’ve found an explanation via the Joomla! forum:

  • Sections are at the top level, for example “Portfolio”
  • Categories are at the 2nd level, for example “Web: Creation”
  • All other items are at the 3rd level

The most obvious conclusion, if this is as far as it goes, is that it does not extend the existing options, and another solution will have to be found, such as tagging. This will be a key component of my system plan in a few weeks time.
