I am just getting started with joomla and noticed something odd.
I have a section in the menu with three categories. I set the section to Articles/section and the categories to Articles/Categories/Blog in the menu setup.
If I click on the section in the menu, I get a list of the categories under that section. Now, here is what I don't understand:
If I click on a category item from the menu I get the category coming up in the blog layout i want. However, if I click on the category as listed in the body of the page for the section, it comes up in an article list format.
Is this the way it is supposed to work or is there a way to make it show the category in the blog format when you click on the item in the section page?

In Joomla, the content layout is always controlled by the menu item settings. You can even have two separate menu items linking to the same content (section, category, etc) but with different "presentation" (layout).
It's kinda hard to grasp at first, but it's really flexible once you play around with the settings/parameters.
